The support for other EDA tools has been split in two parts. The philosophy behind this approach is that you define your available tools (and different versions of them) once; and select which versions to use per project. This also allows you to easily switch between vendor and tool versions during your project. Second advantage is that HDL Companion will add these tools to your program path and set the required environment variables. The EDA Tools Selection wizard allows you to select the appropriate tools and set the options for these tools. Extra tool buttons will be added to the GUI for easy access to the selected tools. A list of tools supported by default is provided below. Other tools or vendors are easily added through the Tcl interface.
The interface to the third party tools is via Tcl scripts. This makes it very easy to add other third party tools to meet your needs.
