The expansion of EDA into other spaces is still primarily centered on electronics. But the perspective is different, where it was once just circuits for circuits' sake. Now, it's context-driven for embedded, wireless, automotive, avionics, etc. EDA is looking to get a systems perspective not only in the electronics (e.g., ESL) but also for the system product where automation is more limited (e.g., the thrust for board-level simulation in the 90's, which stalled due to lack of models; maybe a second hurrah will stick?).

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
