GlobeFracturing is able to convert layout data into formats recognized by various mask exposure equipment, offering an accurate and fast solution for layout data fracturing and format conversion. The input file types that can be supported include GDS, OASIS and MEBES, while the output files are MEBES, etc.. During the format conversion process, it can perform unary operations, binary operations, and transformation operations simultaneously. In addition, it also supports the XOR function to verify the accuracy of data conversion.

GlobeMRC provides a mask rule checking solution to ensure that these patterns on the mask can be adapted to mask manufacturing processes. This tool can check single-layer or multi-layer mask patterns for width/space, notch, point distance, etc., and also supports logical operations among multiple layers.

GlobeView is a convenient tool for viewing and analyzing mask data. This tool supports fast loading, viewing and analysis of mask data, with flexible automatic measurement functions for patterns, as well as analysis capabilities such as pattern density calculation, mask data comparison, and chip overlap checking. GlobeView is mainly used for pre-production mask data checking and analyzing, which can generate reference data in the reticle inspection stage, providing a complete and efficient solution for reticle data analysis.


As a mask data processing, verification and analysis platform, GlobeMask provides accurate and effective methods for layout data conversion, mask data rule verification and mask data viewing and analysis.


As an accurate and efficient tool for layout data fracturing and format conversion, GlobeFracturing can output layout data in a format recognized by mask exposure machines.



GlobeMRC provides a comprehensive and accurate mask rule checking solution. This tool can check mask data rules to ensure that the patterns on the mask are adapted to the mask manufacturing processes.
