ReyesSoft recently introduced their OpenEDA Toolkit 1.0, which was designed to bring the power of Open Source software to the EDA community. With the OpenEDA Toolkit 1.0, ReyesSoft has ported EDA Open Source software to the most popular UNIX-based systems, including SOLARIS (SPARC and x86), Apple OS X 10.4 (PPC and Intel), HP-UX 11i, Cygwin for Microsoft Windows, and Linux. At an introductory rate of just $100 for the basic version, ReyesSoft’s OpenEDA Toolkit 1.0 is accessible to virtually anyone. For additional fees, the company also provides subscriptions and user support.
OpenEDA Toolkit 1.0 consists of Alliance CAD, Icarus Verilog, FreeHDL, the gEDA suite, GTKWave, Gerbv, PCB, Electric, and NG-SPICE. ReyesSoft’s OpenEDA Toolkit 1.0 is ideal for electrical engineering students, educational institutions, individuals, and small companies that need affordable EDA tools without the licensing, hardware restrictions, or per-seat pricing that many commercial software packages entail.
When designing the OpenEDA Toolkit 1.0, ReyesSoft made sure to include tools that can be successfully used for both individual and complex commercial EDA designs. As a result, the suite gives users the flexibility to work alongside commercial applications and integrate their Verilog and VHDL designs at any time.
