Pattern Replacement for Post Processing
Need can arise to modify an existing design by replacing specific parts by new elements. The REPLACE in combination with a FILTER can identify structures and replace these on a large scale by new elements.
For this the FILTER and the REPLACE modules in BEAMER can be used. FILTER allows to select specific elements by criteria such as size, area, shape and isolate them to a specific layer. REPLACE can pick elements of a cell and replace these by other elements. The combination of these two options gives great flexibility to post process a design after creation with little effort and greater ease.
