I also designed a pamphlet for oaScript, Get Started with oaScript, which was distributed at the workshop as well as the Si2 booth on the DAC exhibition floor.

oaScript is free and open source software, actively maintained by an industry-wide coalition of developers from AMD, Altera, Intel, Si2, and Synopsys. is your portal to quick start guides, documentation and support for oaScript.
