The Next IC Design Methodology Transition Is Long Overdue

IC Design Methodology Transition

“From the mid-1970s to the late 1990s, these two factors combined to raise designer productivity from 4-5 gates/day up to 500-1000 gates/day. Figure 1 shows a slow increase in productivity that can be attributed to reuse and incremental tool improvements.”

“The Electronic Design Automation Consortium is the international association of companies developing EDA tools and services that enable engineers to create the world’s electronic products…..”

Electronic Design Automation Consortium

“The EDA industry services virtually every major semiconductor and electronics systems company in the world including, computer, communications, consumer electronics, medical and aerospace. The demand for increasingly complex ICs and SOCs is exploding. Our EDA technologies make it possible for the world’s electronic companies to keep up with demand for smaller, faster, more powerful and lower cost electronic products….

Design Automation Conference (DAC)

“The Design Automation Conference (DAC) is recognized as the premier event for the design of electronic circuits and systems, electronic design automation (EDA) and embedded systems and software (ESS). “
