EDA tools confront the complexity by supporting vehicle design processes
With the complexity of automotive design growing as development cycle times simultaneously shrink, vehicle designers need as many new tools as they can find. A Mentor Graphics Corp. manager describes how upgraded EDA tools originally developed for printed circuit and semiconductor design can now be used to address automotive design applications like electrical systems and wiring harnesses. He also lays out a potential design flow for these automotive systems with an emphasis on getting a handle on design changes.
