It joins five other IEEE societies that form CEDA, which serves as the focal point for IEEE's multiple EDA disciplines. Societies are the Antennas and Propagation Society, the Circuits and Systems Society, the Computer Society, the Electron Devices Society and the Solid State Circuits Society.
"Design automation is a key technology for the electronics industry and CEDA is providing a useful forum of information exchange for IEEE members who are part of this community," says Michal Odyniec who heads a Technical Committee on Computer Aided Design within MTT. "It's for this reason that we have joined forces with the five other IEEE societies to support CEDA and help it realize its charter."
Adds Dunlop: "We welcome the endorsement of MTT and look to it and the other five IEEE societies for guidance as we set CEDA's direction."
About the Council on EDA
The Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) is IEEE's focal point for multiple EDA disciplines. Its goal is to bring increased value to IEEE members by coordinating EDA activities, enabling new initiatives, fostering interdisciplinary research and recruiting young talent to EDA. It also will increase visibility for IEEE-sponsored EDA events such as the Design Automation Conference (DAC) and International Conference on Computer Aided Design (ICCAD) and its technical publications. Its charter spans theory, implementation and use of computer aided design (CAD) tools to design integrated electronic circuits and systems. Its website is located at: www.ieee-ceda.org.
