On the way How to Start!


I am beginner, I wanted to create my own design .I have found an information stating that a new design must be started using Hydra IP platform.

  1. How can I start with Hydra IP ?
    2)Is that I should make use of already existing Hydra IP?
    If so how can I do it?
  2. Is there any other way so that I can create a new design without Hydra Ips?
    4)Which particular tool do I need to use in order to create a new design?Does efabless.com has any tool access ?
