Place and route tool for iCE40 family FPGAs
Versions of package arachne-pnr
Popcon: 8 users (5 upd.)*
Versions and Archs
License: DFSG free

Arachne-pnr implements the place and route step of the hardware compilation process for FPGAs. It accepts as input a technology-mapped netlist in BLIF format, as output by the Yosys synthesis suite for example. It currently targets the Lattice Semiconductor iCE40 family of FPGAs. Its output is a textual bitstream representation for assembly by the IceStorm icepack command. The output of icepack is a binary bitstream which can be uploaded to a hardware device.

Together, Yosys, arachne-pnr and IceStorm provide an fully open-source Verilog-to-bistream tool chain for iCE40 1K and 8K FPGA development.

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 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.

(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.

Versions and Archs
License: DFSG free

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.

tool to generate Smith Charts
Versions of package linsmith
Debtags of package linsmith:

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.

Open-Source Digital Synthesis Flow
Versions of package qflow
Popcon: 6 users (7 upd.)*
Newer upstream!
License: DFSG free

This is a complete tool chain for synthesizing digital circuits starting from verilog source and ending in physical layout for a specific target fabrication process. In the world of commercial electronics, digital synthesis with a target application of a chip design is usually bundled into large EDA software systems. As commercial electronics designers need to maintain cutting-edge performance, these commercial toolchains get more and more expensive, and have largely priced themselves out of all but the established integrated circuit manufacturers. This leaves an unfortunate gap where startup companies and small businesses cannot afford to do any sort of integrated circuit design.

Qflow tries to fill this gap.

Multi-level, over-the-cell maze router
Versions of package qrouter
Popcon: 21 users (24 upd.)*
Newer upstream!
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: 36 users (20 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.

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 the 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.
