Alberto Sangiovanni-Vincentelli Discusses Future Isssues in EDA

In a recent interview with EDN at this year's Design Automation Conference (DAC), Alberto Sangiovanni-Vincentelli discussed some of the most important issues facing electronic design automation (EDA) today. According to Sangiovanni-Vincentelli, professor at UC Berkeley and chief technology advisor for Cadence, electronic systems composed of nanostructures is an area that is just beginning to receive attention. New methods, architectures and tools will be needed to deal with the uncertainties inherent in small devices. He also discussed his theory about the need for developing a new formalism that he calls metamodeling. Read the complete interview on the EDN website.
