Purpose

The technology file ( .tech) describes the technology that will be used to fabricate the circuits to be analyzed by Carafe. Each fabrication technology has its own Carafe technology file since layer names and types may change from process to process. Examples of information in the technology file include which layers can be used as routing wires, which combinations form transistors, which layers are connected by vias, which layers may be shorted together in the presence of fabrication defects, a mapping of GDS layer numbers to layer names, and the colors that layers will be displayed in.
