    Layout in NCSU 0.5um technology Reply
    Dear reader,

    I have been using IHP250nm technology library for some time, inwhich I could easily import my circuit schematic components from'Composer' into 'Virtuoso Layout Editor' while making layout. But now I have to use NCSU 0.5um technology inwhich I could not import the components into Virtuoso. Questions:

    1)Is importing components from Composer (schematics editor) into Virtusos(layout editor) technology specific? Should not it be tool/software specific?

    In NCSU i have learned we are required to make each MOSFET ourselves with 'nactive' etc layers......But how can we make layouts of bjts and diodes?????any tutorials/links for NCSU ami06 technology?

     I can't answer the NCSU specific questions, because I'm not familiar with the technology library you're using, but the "importing components from Composer into Virtuoso" is not really technology specific, but certainly would require some setup to ensure that the technology works well with Virtuoso Layout XL. Having a layout representation of the components (e.g. a layout pcell) is technology specific. It's not clear what is going wrong from your description.

    My suggestion would be to contact the providers of the design kit.
