For the entire quarter, we will be using DesignWorks, a schematic capture and simulation tool from Capilano Computing. It also contains limited Verilog support, which we will use later in the quarter. You will use these tools to specify, and simulate your design and will incorporate schematics and simulator output into the write-up of your assignments.
DesignWorks has several reference manuals viewable with Adobe Acrobat Reader 3.0 (or newer, presumably), which are also available on the CSE department's instructional PCs:
If you're on one of the CSE department's instructional PCs, the manuals are also in a directory on the file server.
