ReyesSoft’s OpenEDA Toolkit 1.0 Brings Affordable EDA Software to UNIX-based Operating Systems

FAIRFAX, Calif., January 3, 2008 – ReyesSoft ( has just introduced its OpenEDA Toolkit 1.0, designed to bring the power of Open Source software to the EDA community. With the OpenEDA Toolkit 1.0, ReyesSoft has ported the Internet’s best EDA Open Source software to the most popular UNIX-based systems, including SOLARIS (SPARC and x86), Apple OS X 10.4 (PPC and Intel), HP-UX 11i, Cygwin for Microsoft Windows, and Linux. A version of the Toolkit to be released late in Q1 2008, will also include support for IBM’s AIX and BSD.

So what does the OpenEDA Toolkit 1.0 offer? It’s actually an impressive line-up: Alliance CAD, Icarus Verilog, FreeHDL, the gEDA suite, GTKWave, Gerbv, PCB, Electric, and NG-SPICE.

“ReyesSoft’s OpenEDA Toolkit 1.0 is ideal for electrical engineering students, educational institutions, individuals, and small companies that need affordable EDA tools without the licensing, hardware restrictions, or per-seat pricing that many commercial software packages entail,” explained ReyesSoft president Ed Immenschuh. “While many of these packages are available elsewhere on the Web, only ReyesSoft has ported them to the major UNIX-based operating systems.”

When designing the OpenEDA Toolkit 1.0, ReyesSoft made sure to include tools that can be successfully used for both individual and complex commercial EDA designs. As a result, the suite gives users the flexibility to work alongside commercial applications and integrate their Verilog and VHDL designs at any time.

At an introductory rate of just $100 for the basic version, ReyesSoft’s OpenEDA Toolkit 1.0 is accessible to virtually anyone. For additional fees, the company also provides subscriptions and user support. And for every purchase of the OpenEDA Toolkit 1.0, ReyesSoft will donate 10% of the profits to Open Source developers and projects or to environmental organizations working to slow global warming.

“We are pleased to offer the EDA world an affordable way to use the top Open Source software on operating systems other than Linux,” Immenschuh stated. “With OpenEDA Toolkit 1.0, ReyesSoft has taken the frustration and work out of porting Open Source programs to UNIX.”
