: I know that Magic and Spice have been ported for Linux
: and are available in some ftp sites.
: Are there any other VLSI CAD tools, such as crystal,
: cif2ps, fsm2oct, expresso, oct2cif, and misII, ported
: for Linux also?
: Any pointer for me to obtain such executables would
: be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
There is alliance - it is Free and has a port to linux.
It supports a subset of vhdl - logical simulation, synthesis, etc.
It is about 50MB - I have managed to reduce the package to ~12MB by using
dynamic linking (It's not trival) and compressed man pages.
For some reason they are not interested in my optimizations
(They simply ignore mail).
I don't remember the location, try archie.
If you can't find it, mail me, and I'll dig the location for you
(If I still have it written somewhere).
Hope This helps
