The term gEDA refers to two things: 1. A set of software applications (CAD tools) used for electronic design released under the GPL. As such, gEDA is an ECAD (electronic CAD) or EDA (electronic design automation) application suite. gEDA is mostly oriented towards printed circuit board design (as opposed to integrated circuit design). The gEDA applications are often referred to collectively as “the gEDA Suite”. 2. The collaboration of free software/open-source developers who work to develop and maintain the gEDA toolkit. The developers communicate via gEDA mailing lists and have participated in the annual “Google Summer of Code” event as a single project. This collaboration is often referred to as “the gEDA Project”. The word “gEDA” is a conjunction of “GPL” and “EDA”. The names of some of the individual tools in the gEDA Suite are prefixed with the letter “g” to emphasize that they are released under the GNU General Public License.
