|| ||Fri, 2 Nov 2007 08:39:49 +0100|
Name: Fedora Electronic Lab - Livecd
Version: F8 RC 3
Type: KDE Scientific
Depend: KDE 3.5.x
[b]== Overview ==[/b]
"Fedora Electronic Laboratory" is a feature for
Fedora 8. Work is being done to ship a "Fedora
Electronic Lab Livecd" (KDE based) along with F8's
release. Meanwhile development FEL livecds will be
released for testing.
For Fedora 8's release, "Fedora Electronic Lab"
targets mainly the Micro-Nano Electronic
Engineering field. It introduces:
# tools for Application-Specific Integrated
Circuit (ASIC) Design Flow process to the Fedora
# extra open source standard cell libraries
supporting a feature size of 0.13Âµm. (more than
# extracted spice decks which can be simulated
with gnucap/ngspice or any spice simulators.
# interoperability between various packages in
order to achieve different design flows.
It is intended for electronic, VLSI students and
hobbyists for educational purposes..
[b]== How to create his/her own livecd ==[/b]
Procedure has been detailed here:
I've documented other progress in my blog. Do
check it out for details. If you have some
recommendations or suggestions, please email me.
Work is also being done to help ubuntu get some of
The idea of Fedora Electronic Lab is not to
include as many as packages for electronic
simulations, but mainly to ensure that design
flows can be achieved. Because it's useless for
the user to have those packages if his/her data
can't be process with other applications thus
implying the user will waste his/her time.
