Electronic design automation

Electronic design automation (EDA) is an umbrella term for computer-aided engineering, computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing of electronics in the discipline of electrical engineering. The term electronic design automation probably originates in the IEEE Design Automation Technical Committee.

EDA has rapidly increased in importance with the continuous scaling of semiconductor technology. (See: Moore's Law.)

Construction topics include: FPGA, integrated circuits primarily in CMOS technology, printed circuit boards, electronic design synthesis.
