Basic Transformations

If a cell name is selected in the Top-Level Cells listing, the entries in the Basic tab page become enabled. One may have to click on the ``Basic'' tab to display the entries. These control the transformation of the selected cell when instantiated in the top-level cell in the output file. If there is no top-level cell name given, these entries will be ignored.

Placement Name entry
The Placement Name field can be filled in with a new name. The selected cell will be saved under this name, rather than its real name, in output. Any name modifications in force will be applied to this name.

Basic transformation entries
This tab page contains entries that control the transformation of the selected cell when instantiated. The Placement X,Y entries set the translation coordinates in microns. The origin of the selected cell will be mapped to this location in the output top-level cell. Additionally, the cell instance can be rotated, mirrored, or magnified. The Rotation Angle menu provides rotation angle choices: multiples of 45 degrees. The Mirror-Y button will invert the Y-coordinates before rotation. The Magnification entry can change the scaling of the instantiation.
