design automation


Electronic design automation, also referred to as electronic computer-aided design, is a category of software tools for designing electronic systems such as integrated circuits and printed circuit boards. The tools work together in a design flow that chip designers use to design and analyze entire semiconductor chips.

Algorithms for VLSI Design Automation intends to show current and future users of VLSI CAD tools what is going on inside these tools. This should lead to insight into what tasks can or cannot typically be performed by such tools, and why some problems can only be
