We would like to try to create a coil of a different topology for a given technology. In other words, the technology I am working with offers a regular spiral inductor. We are interested to see how would a coil of different metal structure behave.
Is there a way for me to draw something in Layout XL and than make it a new device? I.e. to define this layout as a component, asign a symbol to it and then use it in Schematic - so that LVS has no problems with it?
Also, what is your oppinion - I will not hold anyone responsible, I am just asking for an oppinion - should the other layers of an existing coil be copied or should I just draw in a metal layer what I want the coil to look like and then put pads around it?
