The LayoutEditor is a program to design and edit layouts for MEMS/IC fabrication. As well as it is suitably for Multi-Chip-Modules (MCM), Chip-on-Board (COB), Low temperature co-fired ceramics (LTCC), Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMIC), printed circuit boards (PCB), GDS Editor thick film technology, thin film technology, .... It has sophisticated functions like all angles, font generator, macros, boolean operations, design rule checker, OPC, netlist driven layout and LVS. The Calma GDSII file format is used as the primary file format. Also OASIS (Open Artwork System Interchange Standard), DXF, CIF (Caltech Intermediate Form) and Gerber (RS-274X) are full supported. Alliance, Lasi file can be imported. The LayoutEditor is crossplatform compatible and runs on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and much more plattforms.

What is new in this release:

New Features:
- macro encryption,
- open macro remembers last path,
- schematic driven layout for all LayoutEditor versions,
- LayoutEditor free version (without a license key) works with IC designs up to 500 shapes and PCB designs up to 10 devices,
- reorganize shipped macros,
- better performance of BuildConnections,
- PCB setup dialog,
- PCB side change
- show existing route in RouteMode,
- linking NodeMode with schematic,
- linking SelectEditMode with schematic,
- display device name next to refered cell name,
- adjustable text size in SchematicEditor,
- option of display any component port,
- unconnected component port are marked,

File Formats:
- Gerber: fix parsing problem with commands starting with (,
- Eagle: import netlist form brd file,
- KiCad: add support for import (PCB, schematic, library),
- ODB++: rework of import/export, support of compressed files,
- DSN: export as normal file format,
- SES: import as normal file format,
- 3d view export to STL format,

- encryption of macros,
- add new methods to class layout:
- string layout::getStatistic(),
- void layout::setSnapToGrid(bool b),
- void layout::setSnapToPoint(bool b),
- void layout::setSnapToMiddle(bool b),
- void layout::setSnapToLine(bool b),
- void layout::etSnapToCenter(bool b),
- void layout::setSnapToIntersection(bool b),
- add new method to class setup:
- void setup::resetToolbars(),

Bug Fixes:
- storing of PCB placement mode after shutdown,
- select visible on cellrefs,
- update of place list,
- mirror of partial selected shapes,
- DRC no boxes in rotated references,
- signing shipped openSource autorouter on Mac OS X,
- high resolution display on Mac OS X,
- layerNum missing in pylayout,
- scaling of 45 deg rotated EIP,
- 3d view export to DXF from model view,
- layerTranslator in pylayout,
- return var type of iPDK_getParameterValue,
- color select dialog on Mac OS X,

What is new in version 20150208:

- extension in the SchematicEditor
- more macro functions
- and much more...

What is new in version 20140908:

New Features:
- DesignRuleChecker: new check "no pathes with spices",
- DesignRuleChecker: MinimumElementsDistance has better performance,
- DesignRuleChecker: WidthDependentDistance has better performance,
- grid setting will be restored on program start,

User Interface:
- improved editing of shape attributes,
- aborting runing macros by starting a other macro,
- copy to layer now also part of reduced version,

- add new method to class: drc::noSpikesOnLayer(int layer,bool sharpAngles=false),
- add new method to class: extractionModule::calcResistance(pointArray p, int port1, int port2);
- layout::getOpenFilename and layout::getSaveFilename have optional filter on file names,
- File Formats:
- DXF: avoid quote in layer names,
- DXF: add support of Splines,
- OpenAccess: support of cell names with procent sign,

Bug Fixes:
- program start problem on windows due to openGl init,
- manual number entry with dots for grid settings,
- movement from move/scale triggered by context menu will be on grid,
- LVS on designs created with older releases,
- Undo sets design status to unsaved,
- addLayer in booleanTool for rotated reference arrays,
- update of layer list after closeing the layer manager on Mac,


No limitations on the free version. Commercial version has some additional features.
