  Electronic Design Automation
It not only appears as if the design world is at last ready to embrace system-on-chip (SoC) design methodologies, but that the electronic design automation (EDA) industry is maneuvering itself into position to make it happen.
Vendors of pc-board design tools are boosting their research-and-development budgets, even in the current business climate, to meet the signal-integrity challenges presented to board designers by devices such as high-speed SERDES (serializer-deserializer) ICs, and 10-Gbit optical interconnects.
Increases in the complexity and electronics content in automobiles and aircraft are forcing changes in the CAD tools used to design electrical distribution systems and wire harnesses.
