Startup Oasis Tooling Inc. will offer its new OpenAccess-to-Oasis bidirectional translator to customers until June 2005.

Tom Grebinski, who led Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International's Oasis effortto devise a more efficient layout data transfer format than GDS-IIcounts his new company as the first to offer a complete OpenAccess-to-Oasis bidirectional translator.

Oasis boasts a data footprint that is much smaller than GDS-II and facilitates the transfer of data between IC layout and mask making.

The company's Mosaic Translator links Oasis to Si2's OpenAccess, allowing layout teams and mask makers to rapidly transfer data and collaborate on fixes.

Mosaic Translator, which is available at the Oasis Tooling website, includes fully implemented Oasis translators, readers/writers, encoders/decoders, regression and nonregression tests cases, native Oasis 2- and 3-D viewers along with proposed implementation pathways for companies with varied interests.

Grebinski said users downloading the Mosaic Translator are required to sign a no-fee license agreement that expires June 1, 2005. The company is also offering training on Oasis and use of Mosaic Translator.
