Electronic design automation (EDA)
is an umbrella term for computer-aided engineering, computer-aided design
and computer-aided manufacturing
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.
