Slam is a mature IC Layout editor with the ability to edit very large designs (such as stream files larger than 10GB). Novel features include threading for redraw, support for displaying on multiple X servers simultaneously, and a Tcl interface to the database for user extensibility. The system is a library based system with multi-user support. Programmable structures (P-Cells) are available in Tcl. The editor includes gds input and output.
DOLPHIN SLED is a hierarchical schematic entry solution with graphic linking of components, hierarchical configuration of the netlist, and multi-language netlisting (SPICE, Verilog, VHDL-AMS, etc.). Interoperability with other schematic entry tools, particularly the ECS family (including Synario, Cohesion, and Laker-AMS) is ensured for capitalizing on legacy designs and cooperative work. Interoperability is ensured through standard design exchange formats (EDIF2) and scriptability for customization.
Scheture is a hierarchical schematic capture system with built-in netlisters for Spice and Verilog. It has built-in plotting for Postscript, HP PCL and HP GL/2 printers and plotters. It includes a set of symbol primitives, and allows user-defined symbol primitives to allow for extensive customization of primitive properties. The system supports wire buses and iterated instances. The system also supports global pins and implicitly connected pins on a specific sheet. Supported platforms include Solaris and Linux (32- and 64-bit).
The ReliaFree Project is an alternative to commercial, proprietary reliability, availability, maintainability, and safety (RAMS) analysis software. The ReliaFree Project is an integrated suite of tools. Any number of analyses can be linked together such that an update to one module will result in all linked modules being updated appropriately. This approach provides a closed loop life-cycle with visibility into a product's performance throughout. The same database is used to store field failure data as is used to store design prediction information.
Platform Independent Petri Net Editor (PIPE) creates and analyses Petri Nets quickly, efficiently, and effectively. A key design feature is the modular approach adopted for analysis, enabling new modules to be written easily and powerfully, using built-in data layer methods for standard calculations. Six analysis modules are provided, including Invariant Analysis, State-Space Analysis (deadlock, etc.), and Simulation Analysis and Classification. PIPE adheres to the XML Petri net standard (PNML). The file format for saving and loading Petri Nets is extensible through the use of XSLT, the default being PNML.
