class ipkiss.process.layer.ProcessPurposeLayer(process, purpose, **kwargs)

An Ipkiss layer which consists of a processlayer and a patternpurpose. ProcessPurposeLayer and PPLayer are synonyms. Use i3.PPLayer.

Layout primitives such as Rectangle, Circle, Boundary, Path typically have a layer associated with them. For example, when exporting a layout to GDS, the correct settings are loaded from the technology, and used to export each layer to the correct GDS layer number / datatype.
