Altium Designer is used, providing a fully integrated design system for schematic capture of electronics and FPGA IP. This integrated tool allows easy transition to PCB Layout and embedded software design.
We make use of hierarchical modular design at schematic level to increase design re-use. We include VHDL and OpenBus documents as schematic sheet symbols. This allows the full design to be realized and documented in a uniform manner.
