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.
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).
Covered is a Verilog code coverage utility that reads in a Verilog design and a generated VCD/LXT/FST dumpfile from that design and generates a coverage file that can be merged with other coverage files or used to create a coverage report. Covered also contains the GUI coverage report utility that reads in a coverage file to allow interactive coverage discovery. Areas of coverage measured by Covered are: line, toggle, memory, combinational logic, FSM state/state-transition and assertion coverage.
The QConsole class is a custom widget that implements a basic console, written in C++ and relying on Qt. It implements several features and is intended to be inherited from in order to have a "real" console for a specific scripting language, shell, etc. Example implementations for TCL and Python are included.
PEP is a modeling and verification framework for parallel systems. It provides a large number of different modelling languages (e.g. SDL, B(PN)^2, Petri nets, Process algebras and Finite Automata), and verification techniques (e.g. reachability and temporal logic model checking). Due to its Tcl/Tk-based GUI, PEP is easily extensible to other analysis or specification tools. The framework offers fully integrated simulation and debugging features on all levels.
