Description:

== Overview ==

"Fedora Electronic Laboratory" is a feature for Fedora 10. Work is being done to ship a "Fedora Electronic Lab Livecd" (KDE based) along with F10's release. Meanwhile development FEL livecds will be released for testing.

"Fedora Electronic Lab" also targets the Micro-Nano Electronic Engineering field. It introduces:
# tools for Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) Design Flow process to the Fedora Collection.
# extra open source standard cell libraries supporting a feature size of 0.13µm. (more than 300 MB)
# 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..

== How to create his/her own liveDVD ==

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.

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.

ASIC : Application-Specific Integrated Circuit
VLSI : Very Large Scale Integration, about 10⁶ to 10⁷ transistors

Does it work with RH Linux 9.0 or RHEL 3, 4 or 5?

LOL!

You know of geeks who actually make a hobby of VLSI design?

I used to hobby in PCB design, but VLSI??

Too 'brainiac' for me.

Well, Fedora users are not only linux newbies or hobbyists.

We have to satisfy everyone with everything.

As for pcb, Fedora is shipping pcb and gEDA since FC4/5. I'm their package maintainer.

After more than one year of hard work, we are now(For F7 and F8) providing VLSI design tools as another option.

As you can see, you have tools depending on your expertise. Mine is VLSI design, so that's among the reasons, why I've included VLSI design tools for Fedora.

Not everyone uses Fedora the same way. This is what makes Fedora so special. :)
