In 2002, the foreign convention on desktop Aided layout (ICCAD) celebrates its twentieth anniversary. This booklet commemorates contributions made via ICCAD to the wide box of layout automation in the course of that point. the root of ICCAD in 1982 coincided with the expansion of enormous Scale Integration. The sharply elevated performance of board-level circuits ended in an important call for for extra robust digital layout Automation (EDA) instruments. even as, LSI grew fast and complex circuit integration grew to become broadly avail­ capable. This, in flip, required new instruments, utilizing refined modeling, research and optimization algorithms to be able to deal with the evermore complicated layout techniques. now not unusually, through the comparable interval, a few start-up com­ panies started to commercialize EDA options, complementing a number of current in-house efforts. the general elevated curiosity in layout Automation (DA) re­ quired a brand new discussion board for the rising group of EDA execs; one that will be serious about the book of top of the range examine effects and supply a constitution for the alternate of rules on a wide scale. the various unique ICCAD volunteers have been additionally contributors of CANDE (Computer-Aided community Design), a workshop of the IEEE Circuits and Sys­ tem Society. in truth, it was once at a CANDE workshop that invoice McCalla instructed the production of a convention for the EDA expert. (Bill later built the name).
