This section contains some useful hints for creating a technology file.
- The layers that are combined to make transistors (usually polysilicon and the diffusions) must all be on the same plane. This includes layers such as wells.
- Try to create a separate plane for each type of signal carrying layer (except when the layer must be combined with other layers to make transistors).
- The fault transistors should be much larger in width than the size of the transistors in the normal circuit. This tends to make the fault simulation more meaningful when drive strengths need to be resolved.
