UrJTAG aims to create an enhanced, modern tool for communicating over JTAG with flash chips, CPUs, and many more. It takes on the well proven openwince jtag tools code. Future plans include conversion of the code base into a library that can be used with other applications. A flexible remote communication protocol that can be used over almost any type of serial link (including TCP/IP) is currently being defined.
QCADesigner is a Quantum-Dot Cellular Automata (QCA) circuit simulator. With powerful CAD capabilities, it allows the designer to quickly layout and simulate QCA circuits constructed with thousands of QCA cells. QCA is one of several emerging nanotechnologies with potential applications in future computers.
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 Distributed Real-time Embedded Analysis Method (DREAM) is a tool and method for the real-time verification and performance estimation of distributed real-time embedded (DRE) systems. It focuses on the practical application of formal verification and timing analysis to real-time middleware.
Transcalc is an analysis and synthesis tool for calculating the electrical and physical properties of different kinds of RF and microwave transmission lines. It uses GTK+ for its user interface. For each type of transmission line, it presents you with dialog boxes which allow you to enter values for the various parameters, and either calculate its electrical properties (analyze) or use the given electrical requirements to sythesize physical parameters of the required transmission line.
