smartmontools contains utilities that control and monitor storage devices using the Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) system built into ATA and SCSI hard drives. This is used to check the reliability of the hard drive and to predict drive failures. Version 5.x is designed to comply with the ATA/ATAPI-5 specification. Future releases will comply with the ATA/ATAPI-6 and ATA/ATAPI-7 specifications. It is meant to be an up-to-date replacement for the ucsc-smartsuite and smartsuite packages, and is derived from that code.
nMicrocoder is an ncurses EDA tool to write microcode. Basically, it is a stripped down spreadsheet program that lets you fill a table with "0", "1", and "-", and gives you compile-ready verilog code in return. It was written as an alternative to full spreadsheet programs. It is known to run on Linux, IRIX, and Solaris, unless ncurses 5.3 is installed.
