Not being an expert in EDA industry, I would just simply say that EDA is at the very foundations of the electronics industry as a whole, and electronics is all but disappearing from the human way of living. It is transforming and evolving, surely, but no way it will disappear.

I agree with Mike and I want to add new areas of exploration for EDA. If we are looking from the standpoint of microelectronics to leap us into next generation of wonder gadgets, there is some amount of stabilization but from Mechatronics view point there is a huge scope for EDA as an Industry as a whole. We are seeing Nanotechnology ERA shining in front of us with blended technologies of microelectronics and Biology for BASIC (Bio - ASICS) which are revolutionary chips in the making. Our EDA industry LEADERS should focus on Innovation in these areas and work jointly with experts in the field of Mechnical CAD as I see some kind of fusion happening across technologies (EDA + MEMS EDA). We cannnot discount the 3D silicon structures and Molecular electronics in future ASICs across healthcare and even wireless gadgets like mobiles in telemedicine as VISION 2020. Thanks - Ravishankar

Nice article, I have often wondered about the need for EDA with the increasing use of IP and FPGA.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
