Layout VLSI

There are many open source tools for VLSI Layout. Some of them are easier to use than other, some have better documentation, and some are just a sourceforge project that hasn’t been updated in a while.

In the following pages, I’m trying to write about my experience on using some of these tools.

Magic, for instance, is a great tool to start with, as it is very well documented in its website ( Another really well documented tool is Electric, and Prof. Baker is the one posting videos and tutorials for it.

There’s a lot of information out there, but as it happens sometimes in the open source world, there are bits and pieces around the web. So, feel free on posting any comment or suggestion, as I’m trying to do this posts as easy and clear as possible while I’m learning using these tools and get the final goal of building and testing a VLSI chip with only open sources tools.
