It was a tool that allowed us to analyze an instruction stream being executed by embedded processors on a chip. It's a very complex and perplexing ecosystem. We have the suppliers, the users, and we have a whole branch of areas that could benefit from automation of design tools. Successful design of complex electronic systems increasingly requires the bi-directional flow of information among groups of design specialists who are becoming more dispersed geographically and organizationally. This affects the type of design flows we develop, the nature of the design tools, how design software is supported and the organizational structure of the EDA and electronics industries. We want to predict the trend of the influences of the interaction among designers and design organizations on the future evolution of design methodology and EDA by the examples and the issues provided.


In addition to the Review and Original Articles by invited speakers, we are inviting you to submit a relevant research paper on Sociology of Design and EDA for consideration. Papers will be subject to normal peer review and must comply with the Guide for Authors.
