A Technology is an environment of design. Circuits can be built from any technology, and can even mix components from different technologies (to the extent that it is sensible).
Each technology is a collection of components and connecting wires. All relevant information is encapsulated in the technology, including design rules, simulation behavior, etc.
A build-in editor allows interactive creation of new technologies and modification of existing ones.
Electric has the following technologies:
|nMOS||Generic N-channel MOS|
|CMOS||Complementary MOS, many different versions:|
MOSIS Rules (6-metal, double-poly, scmos/submicron/deep)
Round (from Cal Tech)
|Bipolar||Generic Integrated Injector Logic|
|BiCMOS||Hybrid of Bioplar and CMOS|
|Digital Filters||Generic arcitectural technology|
|Printed Circuits||Handles up to 8-layer boards|
|Schematics||Components for both analog and digital design|
|FPGA||Custom FPGA design from architectural|
|Artwork||Elements for graphic design|
