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.
TTA-based Co-design Environment (TCE) is a toolset that provides a complete co-design flow from C programs down to synthesizable VHDL and parallel program binaries. Processor customization points include the register files, function units, supported operations, and the interconnection network.
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).
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.
Easy Funktion is 2D function plotter software with an equation solver. It has an office-like GUI frontend and features a built-in pocket calculator, calculating with complex numbers (with special extensions for electronics, e.g. capacitor/inductor impedance), a function to export to spreadsheet software, and an advanced formula editor with automatic formatting.
KiCad EDA is software for the creation of electronic schematic diagrams and printed circuit board artwork. It is a set of four programs and a project manager: Eeschema (schematic entry), Pcbnew (a board editor), Gerbview (a Gerber viewer (photoplotter documents)), and Cvpcb (a footprint selector for components used in the circuit design). Kicad is the project manager. It includes a 3D visualization feature.
