Define a process module.

A process module is provided by a foundry or assembly service provider as "add-on" option on a more basic platform. Such extensions typically take more time or are at different (higher) cost.


The attributes and elements are shown below, in a sorted per type fashion.
In case a list is printed after an element, it indicates that you can have many, otherwise it should be a single element. With a optional it tells the element is not required.

name="..." ... > ...
  <doc> ... </doc>    optional
  <tex> ... </tex>    optional


The schema file can be downloaded or viewed at xPDK_Layout.



Type pdaDocumentation documentation: Document anything relevant for the topic you want to define.

This field allows some (short, few lines) documentation to be written. It can be a long string, but the idea is not to replace a design manual.
This fields is like tex which allows documentation in LaTex format; doc is restricted to plain text.


Type pdaIdentifier documentation: Defines a valid name for an identifier.

Identifiers are used in the Python library for the getName() and setName() function and can thus be used to identify the different elements in lists.
In text the specification is a letter, followed by letters, numbers, underscore or dot. The XSD schema validation is a regular expression: [A-Za-z]([A-Za-z0-9_])*
