MaxArea Rule

Syntax: MaxArea [Region region_expr] area [string]

The total area of the source figures is compared with the given area (which is given in square microns). If the area of the figures is greater than the test value a DRC violation is indicated. The area is measured on a per-object basis, and is the sum if there are multiple figures (due to a region expression). This does not account for adjacent objects.
