Electronic Design Automation (EDA)

Electronic Design Automation (EDA) refers to a category of software tools that are used by engineers to design, simulate, and analyze electronic systems, such as integrated circuits (ICs), printed circuit boards (PCBs), and systems on a chip (SoCs). EDA tools are used throughout the design process, from conceptualization to manufacturing, to help engineers optimize their designs for performance, power consumption, cost, and other factors. EDA tools typically include schematic capture, simulation, synthesis, layout, and verification tools, among others. These tools enable engineers to design complex electronic systems with high accuracy, efficiency, and speed, and are essential for developing the advanced electronic systems that we rely on today, such as smartphones, computers, and automotive electronics.
