Bug#801230: ITP: arachne-pnr -- Place and route tool for FGPAs

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Ruben Undheim <ruben.undheim@gmail.com>

* Package name    : arachne-pnr
  Version         : 0~20150927gitefdb026
  Upstream Author : Cotton Seed <cotton@alum.mit.edu>
* URL             : https://github.com/cseed/arachne-pnr
* License         : GPL
  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : Place and route tool for FGPAs

Arachne-pnr implements the place and route step of the hardware compilation
process for FPGAs. It accepts as input a technology-mapped netlist in BLIF
format, as output by the Yosys synthesis suite for example. It currently
targets the Lattice Semiconductor iCE40 family of FPGAs. Its output is a
textual bitstream representation for assembly by the IceStorm icepack command.
The output of icepack is a binary bitstream which can be uploaded to a harware

Together, Yosys, arachne-pnr and IceStorm provide an fully open-source
Verilog-to-bistream tool chain for iCE40 1K and 8K FPGA development.

I plan to maintain the package in the Debian Science just as the qflow packages
(yosys etc.)
