TC Design Automation

The TC on Design Automation (TCDA) is involved with the use of computer-oriented techniques in all aspects of the design process of computer & electronic systems, with particular emphasis on design languages, logic synthesis, verification techniques (including digital simulation), manufacturing interface data, graphics, and database management. It sponsors and co-sponsors different conferences and workshops like the Workshop on High-Level Design Validation and Test workshop, the annual symposium on Electronic Design Processes (EDP), the annual Microelectronic Systems Education Conference, and publishes the Design Automation TC Newsletter six times a year in Design and Test magazine, as well as a quarterly electronic newsletter. It has established specific links with the other organizations involved in Design Automation such as: VHDL International (VI), Design Automation Standards Subcommittee (DASC), the European SIGVHDL, Verilog International. The DATC Newsletter offers editorial space for all of these organizations.
