Libre Electronic Design Automation

LibrEDA is a young libre-software framework for the physical design of silicon chips. The project pushes towards democratization of silicon technology by making ASIC toolchains easily accessible for research, education and hobbyists.


Side projects:


The Rust software framework currently features most basic components. This includes input/output for common file formats (OASIS, LEF/DEF, ...) as well as example implementations of algorithms for standard-cell placement, legalization and routing.

Example Output

Illustration of a simple digital chip layout created with the framework. The most visible parts are the wires that connect the standard-cells.
