The CBOLD framework is a set of C++ classes and related source code for capturing board-level electronic designs. It allows the designer to capture and process an electronic board-level design using a text editor (or IDE) and a C++ compiler. It provides a concise, intuitive notation for schematicless capture of board-level designs. Instead of entering a schematic into an EDA tool, the designer creates a C++ program that describes the design and the desired outputs. When the program is compiled and run, it verifies the legality of the design and writes output files (CAD layout netlist, bill of materials, FPGA constraint files, etc.) to disk. Code primarily consists of definitions of modules, which are analogous to pages of a schematic design.
