Bartels AutoEngineer is a commercial CAD tool for electrical / computer engineers. It supports Linux, Win95/NT, DOS, OS/2, HP, DEC and Sun. Features include a schematic Editor with hierarchical design support, Forward/Backward Annotation, PCB Layout system, CAM Processor, CAM View, Integrated, object-oriented database system, User Language Compiler, utility programs for database management, foreign net list and design data import, etc. and part libraries for SCM and PCB layout
BitGen accepts text strings of 1's, 0's and hex digits and converts them to equivalent "pwl" voltage sources for inclusion in netlists for circuit simulation (with SPICE or Spectre, for example). Periodic waveforms (eg, clocks) can be exported as "pulse" voltage sources. Parameters such as rise time, fall time, pulse width and duty cycle can be set on a waveform-by-waveform basis. BitGen is written in Perl with the Perl/Tk toolkit and has an easy-to-use graphical interface.
The Eagle EDA software is composed of tightly integrated modules for PCB design, including Schematic Capture, Board Layout, and Autorouter. There is a free full-function (only board size limited) non-commercial license available for hobby and educational use as well. Windows, DOS, and of course, Linux versions are available.
LinkCAD is an all-in-one converter for AutoCAD DXF, Gerber RS274X, Calma GDS-II, CIF, PostScript, IE3D, TLC, and more. LinkCAD allows you to convert your mask or PCB layout between all the supported formats. Typical users are layout designers in the electronics industry, and mask designers for micro-technology applications.
Pcb is a handy tool for the X Window System to design printed circuit boards. All coordinate units are 1/1000 inch. A layout consists of lines, arcs, polygons, elements (lines, pins and arcs), vias, and text information seperated into several layers. Each of them is identified by a unique name and color (if supported by your display). SMD circuits are also supported. Eight layers are supported, in addition to a silkscreen layer. Visibility of pins and SMD pads and vias is controllable. All files are 7-bit ASCII, and can be preprocessed with any Unix command that writes its results to stdout (GNU m4 is required). Zooming, unlimited undo, and unlimited redo are supported. Pcb is intended to be a simple tool without memory and time consuming features like autorouter and autoplacement. Layout related settings are saved together with the data.
Signal Generator is a laboratory noise/sound generator which can be used to generate accurate sounds in fixed frequency, 2-channels (two frequencies going at once), a sweep-pattern, or in a specified sequence. It is useful when you need to generate a fixed sound for whatever purpose (in the laboratory, for sound effects, etc)
SpiProg is a programmer for SPI (Serial Peripheral Interconnect) compatible EEPROMs used in many modern small electronic devices such as cellular phones. The package contains building instructions for a very simple parallel port adaptor and source code of the programming software. It has a small built-in command line driven hex editor and supports devices like Xicor X25640 and Atmel AT25080.
