Output File

The output file is a unified FasterCap list file. At the top of the file is a comment containing the layer sequence. For example:

* Layers           Plane        Thickness    EpsRel
* Substrate                     75.000       11.900
* Insulator CO     0.000        0.190        4.200
* Insulator VIA1   0.190        0.095        2.900
* Insulator VIA2   0.285        0.095        2.900
* Insulator VIA3   0.380        0.095        2.900
* Conductor M4     0.475        0.220

The Plane is the base elevation of the mask objects of a planarizing layer, that is, the top surface of the layer minus the layer thickness value. This field will be empty for non-planarizing layers.
