Layout Editor is the most popular software for editing designs for the manufacture of MEMS and IC. It is also often used for Multi-Chip Modules (MCM), Chip-on-Board (COB), Low Temperature Cooked Ceramics (LTCC), Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMIC), Printed Circuit Boards (PCB), Technology thick film, thin film technology or any other technology that uses photomascaras. The LayoutEditor can be used freely to access our services, such as the provider with photomascaras
The user interface of the LayoutEditor offers a outstanding usability as well as a high productivity. This is achieved by an extensive use of shortcuts and mouse buttons/keys combination together with clear visibility of this combinations. The most important handling functions like zooming and scrolling are integrated in each feature and need not to be called separately. Context menus are available for most parts of the user interface by a right mouse click.
A three button wheel mouse is recommended for a effective use, but it is also possible to use any feature with a touch pad or one button mouse. The user interface of the LayoutEditor is highly adjustable. The default appearance only includes most important parts. Further tool bars, sub windows can be added on demand via the main menu or via a right click in the empty area of the menu bar/tool bar. A availability of some tool bars/sub windows depend on the LayoutEditor version you use. Feature not available with the installed license key are not displayed. The parts of the user interface are described next. It will start with the most important part of the user interface, the main drawing:
