An open Educational Design Kit (EDK) which supports a 90 nm design flow is described which includes all the necessary design rules, models, technology files, verification and extraction command decks, scripts, symbol libraries, and PCells. It also includes a Digital Standard Cell Library (DSCL) which supports all contemporary low power design techniques; an I/O Standard Cell Library (IOSCL); a set of memories (SOM) with different word and data depths; and a phase-locked loop (PLL). These components of the EDK augment any type of design for educational and research purposes. Though the EDK does not contain any foundry information, it allows real 90 nm technology with high accuracy to be implemented in the designs.
