an intensity greater than 255, a display color that combines light red and medium red is red in an intensity of only 255. In the case of color number 51, the combination of medium red and light red exceeds the maximum intensity of red the monitor can produce. Likewise, the combination of medium blue and light blue exceeds the maximum intensity of blue the monitor can produce. Therefore, creating color number 51 means combining red at an intensity of 255 and blue at an intensity of 255. You can override the default display color for any color number by defining a custom display color in a Color section of the technology file. The display colors define the colors that IC Compiler uses to display designs in the library. The Layer section uses the display colors to specify how layers are displayed. Note: When two display colors overlap, the color produced is the result of an OR operation between the two color numbers. For example, if color number 51 (110011) overlaps color number 56 (111000), the result is color number 59 (111011). You define a custom display color by defining the following attributes in the Color section: name Specifies the name of the color. The name is a user-defined string of up to 31 characters. rgbDefined Indicates whether the color is red, green, blue (RGB)-defined. Valid values are 1 or 0. redIntensity Specifies the color’s red intensity. Valid values are integers from 0 to 255. greenIntensity Specifies the color’s green intensity. Valid values are integers from 0 to 255. blueIntensity Specifies the color’s blue intensity. Valid values are integers from 0 to 255. Example 1-4 shows a Color section that defines color 62 (“owhite”):

The Layer section uses the line styles to determine how layers are displayed. You define a line style by defining the following attributes in the LineStyle section: name Specifies a name that identifies the line style. The name is a user-defined string of up to 15 characters. width Specifies the horizontal dimension of the line style pattern in pixels. height Specifies the vertical dimension of the line style pattern in pixels. pattern Defines the line style pattern, with 1s representing pixels drawn with the color assigned to the layer and 0s representing pixels with no color (transparent). The pattern representation is enclosed in parentheses.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
