About SKiDL

Thanks for showing interest in SKiDL, a small package that let’s you design electronic circuits using Python.

Inspiration

SKiDL was inspired by two other projects:

  • PHDL is a schematic design language that exemplifies the main features I wanted in SKiDL: concise, text-based design entry with support for hierarchy.
  • MyHDL showed how to use the features of Python to support a particular application (designing/simulating digital logic systems) while keeping access to a rich software ecosystem.

Contributors

SKiDL was created by Dave Vandenbout of XESS Corporation, who did the original implementation. So far, that’s it.
