Elgris Technologies™ (Elgris) was founded in 2005 by the Board of Directors of Electronic Tools Company (e-tools). Faced with the challenge of supporting products in 2 fields radically different, E-Tools decided to create a company, Elgris Technologies Inc., that would concentrate only on its EDA Tools while E-Tools name would be reserved to the company dealing with Business solutions and E-Government software.
Our mission, as always, is to create solutions for a diverse, enterprise-wide user base. For the designer, Elgris brings high quality translators that simplify the tasks of integrating, migrating, and archiving design data from various EDA platforms. For the non-designer, Elgris brings visualization technology that makes it obvious to access, to view, and to markup design data for review and communication processes.
E-studio is our most versatile product. It can be used for viewing schematics, generating schematics from netlists, translating schematics and netlists from/to leading vendor databases or from/to standard formats like EDIF and XML. It can also be used for collaboration as it contains red-lining functionality. If you deal with OrCAD Capture, ConceptHDL, Viewdraw/DxDesigner, EDIF200, EDIF300, EDIF400, XML, Spice, Verilog, DesignArchitect , PADS Powerlogic, Altium Designer or PCAD databases, you need to own this tool.
Elgris develops and supports EDIF (Electronic Design Interchange Format) translators that are used by designers of application-specific integrated circuits (ASIC), printed circuit boards (PCB), and multi-chip modules (MCM). These are EDIF standard translators that you can find on EDA platforms such as Cadence Design Systems, Mentor Graphics, etc. EDIF translators are used for migration of designs from one EDA platform to another, integration from various EDA platforms, and archiving into a neutral format, EDIF.
Si2-DR API is an extension of CFI-DR API specification and implementation. CFI-DR API covers Netlists. Si2-DR re-uses renamed CFI-DR functions to cover netlists. It has been extended to cover EDA Schematics and Symbols. A future release of Si2-DR API will include PCB/MCM designs and Footprints.
Elgris Technologies, Inc. (Elgris) has a suite of XML Interface Tools for EDA. XML (eXtensible Markup Language) defines a set of rules for writing markup languages. XML was used to define a markup language called EdaXML. The XML rules for EdaXML are defined in an XML Document Type Definition (DTD) called EdaXML.dtd.
