Paper Abstract

GDSII file size is not very well correlated with the computer runtime and memory required to perform RET processing. Occasionally, small files can take many hours to process, while large files can run very quickly. The ability to accurately predict resource requirements for RET processing is essential to optimizing RET automation. In this paper, we examine GDSII complexity metrics in an effort to find a method for predicting RET processing resource requirements.
