Authors:  Carrie Aust


1.  Create GDSII file for layout.

2.  Or Create CIF file for layout


3.  Find checksum for output file (GDSII or CIF)


>>gcc mosiscrc.c

          >>a.out -b <GDSII file name>

          >>a.out -t <CIF file name>

4.  Submitting the Chip....

Use the one-step submission form to submit the chip to MOSIS for fabrication.  Refer to http://www.mosis.org/Customer/Email/email-templates.html#one-step for details.  The lambda and the technology code are specific to the process your are using.  The technology codes and lambda values are found at http://www.mosis.org/Technical/Techcodes/menu-techcodes.html

If you are using the NCSU design kit, the technology code is specific to the kind of devices you are using. All the SCMOS options are given at http://www.mosis.org/Technical/Designrules/scmos/scmos-main.html The options available are specific to the process (see http://www.mosis.org/Technical/Processes/menu-processes.html )The lambda values are given for each of the processes.
