GNU Electric

electrical CAD system

Electric is a CAD program for designing electrical circuits, handling custom IC layout, schematic drawing and hardware description language specifications. Several CAD operations are supported, such as rule checking and simulation. Many different types of designs can be produced and input or output in a wide variety of formats.

GNU Electric offers a wide range of synthesis and analysis tools for working on the circuitry, including design rule checking, simulation, routing, layout vs. schematic, logical effort… It also has many importers and exporters for interfacing to other EDA (Electronic Design Automation) systems. It even has a constraint system for managing chip layout.
