Accellera - Unification of EDA Standards

"Accellera was formed in 2000 through the unification of Open Verilog International and VHDL International to focus on identifying new standards, development of standards and formats, and to foster the adoption of new methodologies."

Accellera - Unification of EDA Standards
  • Accellera and The SPIRIT Consortium Announce Merge
  • Tutorial on the Design and Verification of Low Power SoCs
Design and Verification Conference & Exhibition

An independent organization with the mission to provide design and verification standards required by systems, semiconductor, IP and design tool companies to enhance a front-end design automation process.

The Next IC Design Methodology Transition Is Long Overdue

IC Design Methodology Transition
"From the mid-1970s to the late 1990s, these two factors combined to raise designer productivity from 4-5 gates/day up to 500-1000 gates/day. Figure 1 shows a slow increase in productivity that can be attributed to reuse and incremental tool improvements."

Labcenter Electronics - Proteus Design Suite

The Proteus Design Suite is wholly unique in offering the ability to co-simulate both high and low-level micro-controller code in the context of a mixed-mode SPICE circuit simulation. With this Virtual System Modelling facility, you can transform your product design cycle, reaping huge rewards in terms of reduced time to market and lower costs of development.

Labcenter Electronics - Proteus Design Suite

Co-simulation of microprocessor software within a mixed mode SPICE simulator.
  • Available for PIC, 8051, AVR, HC11, ARM7/LPC2000 and Basic Stamp processors
  • See your code interact with simulated hardware in real-time.
  • Interactive peripheral models for displays, keypads, etc.
  • Over 8000 analogue and digital device models.
  • Extensive single step and debugging facilities including system wide diagnostics.
  • Works with popular compilers and assemblers.

Labcenter Electronics - Proteus Design Suite

Proteus Virtual System Modelling (VSM) combines mixed mode SPICE circuit simulation, animated components and microprocessor models to facilitate co-simulation of complete microcontroller based designs. For the first time ever, it is possible to develop and test such designs before a physical prototype is constructed.

FreePCB - PCB editor

FreePCB - PCB editor

FreePCB is a free, open-source PCB editor for Microsoft Windows, released under the GNU General Public License. It was designed to be easy to learn and easy to use, yet capable of professional-quality work. It does not have a built-in autorouter, but it can use the FreeRoute web-based autorouter at freerouting.net. Some of its features are:
  • 1 to 8 copper layers
  • Board size up to 60 inches by 60 inches
  • Uses English or metric units (i.e. mils or mm) for most functions.
  • Footprint libraries courtesy of Ivex Design International Inc.
  • Copper fill areas
  • Footprint Wizard and Footprint Editor for creating or modifying footprints
  • Imports and exports PADS-PCB netlists
  • Exports extended Gerber files (RS274X) and Excellon drill files
  • Design rule checker
  • Autosave
Example - Logic Analyzer: This is an open-source logic analyzer called MiniLA contributed by Bob Grieb of the User Forum. The image on right is the Logic Analyzer PCB.

Some Features:
  • Up to 32 channels
  • 128 Kb of memory for each channel
  • Sampling rate up to 100 MHz (timebase in 1-2-5 sequence)
  • Input levels compatible with 3.3V and 5V logic
  • Selectable pretrigger/posttrigger buffer size in 8K step
