<p>A brief historical overview is given of computer-aided design of integrated circuits. Layout strategies are examined, with emphasis on the hierarchical approach, which is the one most commonly adopted for semicustom LSIs. Functional and logic design are discussed, covering languages, logic synthesis, and hardware. A design example is presented to illustrate the use of the advanced tools discussed.</p>
