Debian Science Project
Debian Science Electronics packages

This metapackage will install Debian Science packages related to Electronics. You might also be interested in the field::electronics debtag and, depending on your focus, in the education-electronics metapackage.

The list to the right includes various software projects which are of some interest to the Debian Science Project. Currently, only a few of them are available as Debian packages. It is our goal, however, to include all software in Debian Science which can sensibly add to a high quality Debian Pure Blend.

For a better overview of the project's availability as a Debian package, each head row has a color code according to this scheme:

If you discover a project which looks like a good candidate for Debian Science to you, or if you have prepared an unofficial Debian package, please do not hesitate to send a description of that project to the Debian Science mailing list

ABC - A System for Sequential Synthesis and Verification
Versions of package berkeley-abc
Popcon: 12 users (2 upd.)*
Versions and Archs
License: DFSG free

This is a growing software system for synthesis and verification of binary sequential logic circuits appearing in synchronous hardware designs. ABC combines scalable logic optimization based on And-Inverter Graphs (AIGs), optimal-delay DAG-based technology mapping for look-up tables and standard cells, and innovative algorithms for sequential synthesis and verification.

ABC provides an experimental implementation of these algorithms and a programming environment for building similar applications. Future development will focus on improving the algorithms and making most of the packages stand-alone. This will allow the user to customize ABC for their needs as if it were a tool-box rather than a complete tool.

language for synchronous reactive hardware system design
Versions of package confluence
Debtags of package confluence:

Popcon: 41 users (14 upd.)*
Versions and Archs
License: DFSG free

From the upstream website:

A Confluence program can generate digital logic for an FPGA or ASIC platform, or C code for hard real-time software.

Confluence combines the component-based methodologies of Verilog and VHDL with the expressiveness of higher order functional programming.

In comparison to Verilog, VHDL, and C, systems designed in Confluence result in 2X to 10X code reduction, making the source easier to manage and reuse. And because Confluence relies on a correct-by-construction compiler, bugs are reduced--some are prevented altogether--thus reducing the overall verification effort.

(Description from the GHDL home page

GHDL is a VHDL simulator, using the GCC technology.

VHDL is a language standardized by the IEEE, intended for developing electronic systems.

GHDL implements the VHDL language according to the IEEE 1076-1987 or the IEEE 1076-1993 standard. GHDL compiles VHDL files and creates a binary which simulates (or executes) your design.

GHDL does not do synthesis: it cannot translate your design into a netlist.

KLogic is an application for building and simulating digital circuits easily.

It provides an easy way to build circuits containing standard components like AND, OR, XOR and flipflops like RS and JK. To build more complex and reusable circuits, you can create sub-circuits.

The simulation runs permanently by default while building your circuits. For extended testing you can use a single stepping simulation to recognise peaks. You can display the signal flow of the components of a circuit as a graph. Each device of your circuit has a tunable delay. With the burst option the delay of all devices can be disabled.

Versions and Archs
License: DFSG free

A Smith chart is a tool used in electrical engineering that shows how the complex impedance of a transmission line varies along its length, and simplifies the design of impedance matching networks to match the line to its load.

linSmith is a Smith Charting program, mainly designed for educational use. As such, there is an emphasis on capabilities that improve the 'showing the effect of'-style of operation.

Its main features are:

  • Definition of multiple load impedances (at different frequencies)
  • Addition of discrete (L, C, parallel and series LC, and transformer) and line components (open and closed stubs, line segments)
  • Connection in series and parallel
  • Easy experimentation with values using scrollbars
  • A 'virtual' component switches from impedance to admittance to help explaining (or understanding) parallel components
  • The chart works in real impedances (not normalized ones)
  • Direct view of the result on the screen
  • Ability to generate publication quality Postscript output
  • A 'log' file with textual results at each intermediate step
  • Load and circuit configuration is stored separately, permitting several solutions without re-defining the other

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.

Versions of package qrouter
Popcon: 14 users (2 upd.)*

License: DFSG free

Qrouter is a tool to generate metal layers and vias to physically connect together a netlist in a VLSI fabrication technology. It is a maze router, otherwise known as an "over-the-cell" router or "sea-of-gates" router. That is, unlike a channel router, it begins with a description of placed standard cells, usually packed together at minimum spacing, and places metal routes over the standard cells.

Qrouter uses the open standard LEF and DEF formats as file input and output. It takes the cell definitions from a LEF file, and analyzes the geometry for each cell to determine contact points and route obstructions. It then reads the cell placement, pin placement, and netlist from a DEF file, performs the detailed route, and writes an annotated DEF file as output.

Tcl/Tk based digital circuit editor and simulator

Versions of package tkgate
Debtags of package tkgate:
Popcon: 64 users (24 upd.)*
Versions and Archs
License: DFSG free

TkGate is a digital circuit editor and simulator with a Tcl/Tk based interface. TkGate includes a large number of built-in devices including basic gates, memories, ttys and modules for hierarchical design. The simulator can be controlled either interactively or through a simulation script. Memory contents can be loaded from files, and a microcode/macrocode compiler (gmac) is included to create tkgate memory files from a high-level description. The simulator supports continuous simulation, single step simulation (by clock or epoch) and breakpoints. Save files are in a Verilog-like format.

TkGate also includes a number of tutorial and example circuits which can be loaded through the "Help" menu. The examples range from a simple gate-level 3-bit adder to a 16-bit CPU programmed to play the "Animals" game.

TkGate has a multi-language interface with support for English, Japanese, French and Spanish.

License: DFSG free

Verilator is the fastest free Verilog HDL simulator, and beats many commercial simulators. It compiles synthesizable Verilog (not test-bench code!), plus some PSL, SystemVerilog and Synthesis assertions into C++ or SystemC code. It is designed for large projects where fast simulation performance is of primary concern, and is especially well suited to generate executable models of CPUs for embedded software design teams.

Visolate reads the gerber files describing printed circuit boards and converts them into the G-code (RS-274 code) needed to engrave they layout into a board using a CNC machine. Precise renditions of the original layout can be created as well as voronoi fillings of the original layout, shortening the toolpath.
