Hi Everyone, I'm trying to set up a replicable development environment using docker and foss-asic-tools from efabless, has anyone had problems using this tool?

The foss-asic-tools repository is Mohamed Kassem's idea, so probably best to ask him about it if you have questions.

Thanks so much Tim :), I just found the #containers channel so I'll check that out and then ask.

Hi @User, I am trying to define a replicable analog development environment for a group of students and have found efabless/foss-asic-tools and a fork called hpretl/iic-osic-tools.
Is there any difference in terms of package updating, maintainance, things like that? Is there another analog design alternative?
Thank you very much for your willingness to help 🙂
Now have found Revolution EDA. Is it suitable for analog development?

you can use either - although I have to say Rev EDA is really nice from the way it looks - I havent tried it myself though

@User our Docker works quite nice by now, it has all the features of the efabless’ original, plus a few useful extensions. See also this announcement https://skywater-pdk.slack.com/archives/C0221Q4PYJ0/p1652178201049599

The scripts are simple but effective, just what I wanted for my development team. The container is already running on our server :) Thanks for doing the dirty work, @User @User @User

Hello, I want to start with the analog design flow using sky130.. I see that there are many libraries in the pdk.. What all libraries among them will be useful to excercise the sky130 flow?

For an analog flow, the main library of concern is the one with all the devices and models in it, which is
sky130_fd_pr
(pr = "primitives").
