    I was wondering which CAD IC design software packages were popular
    within the market place? I've been using Altera Quartus II and know of
    Protel but which packages have the best reputation and therefore are
    the most popular?


  2. Do you want to design ICs, program FPGAs, or design PC boards that
    will hold ICs, including FPGAs?

    Quartus is used to develop configuration files for Altera FPGAs.

    Protel is used to design and lay out PC boards (but the latest version
    does apparently have some facility for confguring some FPGAs.)
