About GDSII Compression

In September, SoftJin announced a software product, GDSIIZIP that compresses large IC layout files in GDSII format by up to 20 X, thereby significantly reducing file size as well as transfer time for large electronic designs.

GDSIIZIP allows EDA tool users, EDA companies and in-house CAD groups at semiconductor companies to address the challenge of handling increasingly large GDSII file sizes common in today's nanometer designs and reduces the time it takes to transfer these files across design groups, mask makers and foundries. For example, instead of requiring a T3 line for transfer of 200 GB of GDSII data from a design team to a remote manufacturing team in about 1.5 hours, using the compressed layout data generated by GDSIIZIP, the same file can be transferred using a much less expensive T1 line in the same time.
