EDA (Electronics Design Automation) refers to the computer programs that are used to design all of today's electronic components and products. The problem is that there are more EDA tools than you can throw a stick at, and the myriad ways in which they can be used together will make even the strongest mind boggle.
The problem is that it's difficult to see the "big picture" when all of its constituent parts are unfamiliar. Thus, EDA: Where Electronics Begins uses the analogy of designing a city to provide a conceptual framework for the reader. For example, our city (electronic system) is formed from a number of islands (circuit boards), which are linked to each other and to the mainland (outside world) by means of bridges (connectors and cables). Each island contains a number of buildings (integrated circuits), each of which has a number of entrances and exits (pins). People (bits of data) move between buildings on moving walkways (copper tracks), ... and so on.
Although this analogy may seem simple, it forms a capriciously cunning framework that is used to describe a wide range of tools (synthesis, simulation, layout, etc.) and tricky concepts like clock design, analog and digital circuits, and ... the list goes on.

Clive "Max" Maxfield: PResident of TechBites Interactive, currently specializes in creating web sites and presenting technology messages for high-tech companies. In addition to numerous technical articles appearing in magazines around the world, Max has published a number of books on electronics, computers, and 3D graphics. Max was once described as an "industry notable" and a "semiconductor design expert" by someone famous who wasn’t prompted, coerced, or remunerated in any way!
Kuhoo Goyal Edson: PResident of KuhooZ, is mother of two who happens to find the EDA industry hugely interesting and amusing; so much so that she has spent the last 15 years of her life enthusiastically marketing the industry and its solutions. During this time, Kuhoo has managed to secure lasting relationships with many brilliant people throughout the industry, her co-author being one of them. Well known as a high-octane character – she has been referred to as "a little ball of fire" – Kuhoo is also famous for her generous nature. On any given day, Kuhoo’s main ambition in life is to make sure her children get their brains from her and their even-keel, happy-go-lucky personalities from her husband.Review:
