IEEE forming council on electronic design automation

New York, NY—To coordinate electronic design automation (EDA) activities, enable new initiatives, foster interdisciplinary research, and recruit talent, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ (IEEE) Technical Activities Board plans to form a new IEEE Council for Electronic Design Automation (C-EDA) and formally approve it in June 2005.

New York, NY— To coordinate electronic design automation (EDA) activities, enable new initiatives, foster interdisciplinary research, and recruit talent, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers ’ (IEEE) Technical Activities Board plans to form a new IEEE Council for Electronic Design Automation (C-EDA) and formally approve it in June 2005. This council will become the focal point for IEEE's multiple EDA disciplines, and bring increased value to IEEE’s members. Previously, EDA-related activities were spread among various IEEE societies with little coordination.

'The council is a major step toward realizing that EDA is a key technology for the semiconductor and systems sector,' says Giovanni De Micheli, former IEEE Circuits and Systems Society president and director of the Integrated Systems Centre at EPF Lausanne in Switzerland. 'This technology needs to be nurtured by fostering interdisciplinary research and by exposing its results to young engineers whose presence in this field is necessary for the overall growth of the electronics industry.'

Five IEEE societies have agreed to join the council: Antennas and Propagation Society; Circuits and Systems Society; Computer Society; Electron Devices Society; and Solid State Circuits Society.

C-EDA's charter spans theory, implementation and use of computer aided design (CAD) tools to design integrated electronic circuits and systems. This includes tools that automate all levels of the design, analysis and verification of hardware and embedded software up to complete working systems. C-EDA will further increase visibility for IEEE-sponsored EDA events such as the Design Automation Conference (DAC) and International Conference on Computer Aided Design (ICCAD) and its technical publications that feature EDA.
