EBPG Fun Pak EBPG, Linux

All sorts of EBPG goodies, including gpfsort, gpfmerge,, align_window, find_edge, find_square, and more. Now contains htstab, for Vectorbeam expatriates. Check out the presentation on drift and sorting for examples of gpfsort in action. Gpfsort  and ybrsort can now sort fields by a specified path. NEW gpf utilities adapt to changes in Beams > v09. NEW PROCEDURE for using user-defined marker scripts.

Dot Noise Linux, generic

Analyze e-beam deflection noise using images of dots

EBPG parameter calculator Linux, generic*

Calculate EBPG exposure parameters

Flatten GDS v3.0 Linux, generic

Flatten GDSII pattern files, removing hierarchy and rendering rotations, scaling, etc, as simple polygons. Multiple inceptions of rotated and scaled cells are now handled properly.

GDS Dump Linux, generic

Print contents of a GDSII pattern file as text, which is useful for debugging CAD problems.

GDS Library Linux, generic

A library of C functions for reading and writing GDSII pattern format. Example included.

Line Edge Roughness Linux, generic

Analyze line edge roughness using images of lines

TIFF to GDS Linux, generic

Convert TIFF images into GDSII format, e.g. for e-beam exposure (version 2)

To unpack downloaded files that end in “.tar”, use the command 

tar xvf filename.tar 

To unpack downloaded files that end in “.tar.gz” or “.tgz” use the command 

tar xvzf filename.tar.gz 

To unpack files that end in “.zip”… If you need help with this then you really should not be attempting e-beam lithography. Go home and take a nap. 

Look in the file INSTALL or install.txt for further instructions.
