Autodesk - 2D and 3D CAD

Since 1982, Autodesk has ushered in state-of-the-art 2D and 3D technologies that let customers visualize, simulate, and analyze the real-world performance of their ideas early in the design process.

Autodesk - 2D and 3D CAD -  https://www.autodesk.com/

AutoCAD is a suite of CAD software products for 2- and 3-dimensional design and drafting, developed and sold by Autodesk, Inc.. The original concept of AutoCAD in the 1980s was to promote customization and feature extensibility, and was what made it especially appealing to customers.
Most contemporary CAD products at that time offered little if any customization capability and most were far more expensive.

The MIPS SEAD -3

The MIPS SEAD -3 System engineering and development board is designed to provide a low-cost means to support various CPU cores allowing the user to evaluate the cores in an FPGA environment.

SEAD-3 also provides a user the ability to utilize the on board Xilinx FPGA for their own custom programming when a MIPS® FM-3 module is added to house the CPU core. When the FM-3 is added the user can then additionally stack on a MIPS® FPGA 5b board that can house up to two additional Xilinx XC5VLX330s providing extra design capacity.
