About OCEAN: the sea-of-gates design system
-------------------------------------------
+ Available for free, including all source code.
+ Short learning curve making it suitable for student design courses.
+ Hierarchical (full-custom-like) layout style on sea-of-gates.
+ Powerful tools for placement, routing, simulation and extraction.
+ Any combination of automatic and interactive manual layout.
+ OCEAN can handle even the largest designs.
+ Running on popular HP, Sun and 386/486 PC machines, easy
  installation.
+ Includes three sea-of-gates images with libraries and a
  200,000 transistor sea-of-gates chip.
+ Can be easily adapted to arbitrary images with any number of layers.
