1-12: Schematics and Layout Tutorial
1-12-1: Introduction to Schematic/Layout Tutorial

This tutorial was originally written by David Harris at Harvey Mudd College as the first in a set of lab instructions for an undergraduate-level CMOS VLSI design class. It provides very basic instructions to acclimatize first-time users with Electric. As such, it is not a full introduction to using Electric, nor does it cover many commonly used commands.

What this tutorial does cover is:

To begin, load the "mipscells" library from the Static Free Software website ( This library contains many parts of the MIPS processor that are provided to you. You will add your new design to the library as you work through the tutorial.
