During DFM and Mask Data Preparation, designers may have to extract specific cells from a GDSII or OASIS ® layout database.

GOTpick-cell extracts any cell with its full hierarchy from a GDSII or OASIS ® layout database. Well-suited for database recovery, GOTpick-cell is the ideal companion to GOTreplace to address local corrections.

GOTpick-cell is fully integrated in XYALIS layout manipulation suite and in XYALIS Mask Data Preparation solution. It handles standard layout: GDSII, OASIS ® and works directly on gzipped files.

GOTpick-cell can be used to rebuild a cell and its sub-cells or to isolate a cell in a file containing multiple top-cells.

GOTpick-cell includes a distant access mechanism based on HTTP sockets. This allows for simple client/server mode access from any web interface. This mechanism can also be used to develop a customized GUI.

GOTpick-cell runs in command line mode for automatic processing and easy inclusion in an existing flow.
