As the cost of design and mask sets have dramatically increased with the most advanced processes, it is critical for design teams and mask data preparation teams to include robust and repeatable layout manipulation tools in their flow in order to increase their productivity and remove risk of error.

GOTfig creates a .png graphic output file from an input file in MEBES / Jobdeck format or .oam OASIS.MASK format, generated by GOTomat. Taking advantage of the advanced features of the OASIS.MASK format, as well as OASIS ® properties instantiated by GOTomat, GOTfig is able to navigate large OASIS.MASK files very quickly.

GOTfig can generate a snapshot of any area in the input file or create a picture of the whole database. The size of the generated image is specified by the user.

GOTfig benefits from the advanced GDSII & OASIS ® TOOL (GOT) data representation engine developed by XYALIS in order to manipulate the largest layout files in a minimum computing time with minimum disk and memory requirements.

GOTfig directly works on compressed MEBES files to further improve speed and memory consumption. GOTfig includes a distant access mechanism based on HTTP sockets for driving the tool in client/server mode.

GOTfig can clip in < 1 second for a 100um window within 500Gb-1Tb DB


  • Generates in less than 1 second a window image of a large OASIS.MASK or Mebes file


  • Snapshot in png format of any are of input file
  • Manage OASIS.MASK or Mebes input file format
  • Has a Preview mode to display the whole chip
