Today, we take for granted many electronic products such as cellular phones, digital cameras, personal stereos, and printers. But none of these microchip-based electronic products would be possible without the essential (but mostly unknown) Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software tools engineers use to create them. Introduction to Electronic Design Automation gives an overview of the EDA business in the context of the electronic product and semiconductor industries it supports. It covers both the business aspects and the engineering issues addressed by EDA tools, described in layperson's terms.While addressing non-technical readers, the book can also help many technical employees needing the "big picture".

Essential Electronic Design Automation (EDA)
Essential Electronic Design Automation (EDA) demystifies this highly technical industry for anyone with a "need-to-know" about EDA. A friendly, informal introduction to EDA business and technology, clear enough for laypeople yet detailed enough for technical readers. The book also makes an excellent complementary text for cross-disciplinary engineering, business and marketing courses on VLSI Design.
Simply and clearly, veteran industry leader Mark Birnbaum introduces the design problems EDA is intended to solve, the tools that exist to solve them, the designers who use them, and what makes EDA crucial to electronic product and chip design.
Industry newcomers will appreciate the book's extensive set of appendices, including primers on electricity, semiconductor manufacturing, computing, and common dimensions, reference sources and a complete glossary with acronym pronunciation.About the Author:
MARK D. BIRNBAUM brings unique qualifications to this subject, having worked as an EDA user, manager, developer and tool vendor. Mr. Birnbaum's experience at nine major computer, semiconductor, EDA and research organizations spans the electronics design world from system products to IC chips. He has held senior positions in engineering management, consulting, R&D, product development, test, and marketing, led two standards groups, and taught microelectronics and EDA classes.
