Inter-layer bridge faults occur only when there is a non-zero
area of overlap between the two conducting regions.
Intra-layer bridge faults are reported for ndiffusion and
pdiffusion even when the area of the failure is under the gate
of a transistor.
Bridge faults between two different layers on the same
plane will be considered intra-layer bridges. So, if you want
inter-layer bridges between two layers, make sure the layers are
on different planes. See the section on the Technology
File in the Customizing Carafe chapter for more on
