Title:  zamiaCAD: Shall we dance?

Abstract:  This talk will give an overview of an open-source framework zamiaCAD for hardware design and debug which is based on an open and highly scalable model.
In recent years software development discipline has made significant advances in the area of program code entry, navigation, analysis and debug which resulted in powerful integrated development environments, e.g. the open-source Eclipse IDE. The existing hardware development environments are lacking this progress and remain awkward. The situation is even worse in the open-source tools domain. At the same time, RTL still remains today the primary abstraction level for hardware design entry and the state-of-the-art design flows need to cope with designs of enormous size.

zamiaCAD addresses the above mentioned issues and makes hardware design fun. The core features of the framework are: pleasant-to-use design entry, efficient design exploration, scalable front-end, free simulator, debug infrastructure and community support. It can serve as a base for academic research environments and as a practical aid at industry. The presentation will include demos of zamiaCAD application for verification and debug tasks.
