As market demand drives electronics companies to pack more performance and functionality into chips manufactured at ever-smaller geometries, designers begin to hit a wall of complexity—especially as we enter the nanometer era. Today's semiconductors and electronic systems are so complex that creating them would be impossible without electronic design automation (EDA).
