What Electronic Design Automation Software was used to Design Arduino

Hi

I am interested in the Design and Manufacturing of Arduino.

What Design Automation Software was used to Design Arduino or is the processor a stock unit.

What company makes the processor?

Who makes the Integrated circuit?

I hope you don't mine so many questions, many thanks for your help.

What company makes the processor?

You found the forum, and registered, but you couldn't find the Hardware link on the home page and look for yourself?

Who makes the Integrated circuit?

Which IC?

  1. well, thy post eagle files, so yea... eagle is a PCB and circuit design software, and seems to be the most popular of it's type, and it is free.
  2. atmel. it is in the name, ATMEL ATmega328.
  3. ...the processor kind of IS the IC. the rest is voltage regulators and USB-COM things (also an atmel if you are talking about the UNO)

eagle, from cadsoft.de atmel.com, makes the atmega328P

Thank you.. .. great project
