The Inductance/Resistance Extraction Interface

The interface uses an external program to extract inductance and resistance values along conducting features in the layout. The interface currently supports the original FastHenry program from MIT, and (presumably) all input format compatible successor and derivative programs that can be run from a command line.

This is the second generation interface to FastHenry. The original extraction interface, found in releases 4.0.8 and earlier, was quite a bit more complicated. The present interface affords at least the following simplifications:

The new interface, however, is much more flexible and powerful than the original interface.
