Name Type Details
Magic VLSI Layout Description: The Open Circuit Design website states: "Magic is a venerable VLSI layout tool, written in the 1980's at Berkeley by John Ousterhout, now famous primarily for writing the scripting interpreter language Tcl. Due largely in part to its liberal Berkeley open-source license, magic has remained popular with universities and small companies. The open-source license has allowed VLSI engineers with a bent toward programming to implement clever ideas and help magic stay abreast of fabrication technology. However, it is the well thought-out core algorithms which lend to magic the greatest part of its popularity. Magic is widely cited as being the easiest tool to use for circuit layout, even for people who ultimately rely on commercial tools for their product design flow. "
IRSIM Switch level simulator Description: From the Open Circuit Design website: "IRSIM is a tool for simulating digital circuits. It is a 'switch-level' simulator; that is, it treats transistors as ideal switches. Extracted capacitance and lumped resistance values are used to make the switch a little bit more realistic than the ideal, using the RC time constants to predict the relative timing of events. "
XCircuit Schematic Capture Description: The Open Circuit Design website states: "XCircuit is a UNIX/X11 (and now Windows, if you have an X-Server running) program for drawing publishable-quality electrical circuit schematic diagrams and related figures, and produce circuit netlists through schematic capture."
PCB version 3.0 PC Board Layout Description: From the Open Circuit Design website: "pcb is free software for designing printed circuit board layouts. It has many features and is capable of professional-quality output. It is available for UN*X operating systems, e.g., GNU/Linux, Mac OS-X, or Cygwin under Windows. pcb was orignally written by Thomas Nau of the University of Ulm, Germany, and is now maintained by harry eaton of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel, Maryland, USA. PCB 3.0 is a branch of the source code modified to operate under the Tcl/Tk interpreter. "
Netgen LVS Description: Netgen is a tool for comparing IC layout versus schematic - known as LVS in the business. This version is designed to work in concert with the "magic", IRSIM and xcircuit tools available on the same website.
