The Cadence EDA360 Vision Paper is a comprehensive call-to-action for the electronics industry to address a disruptive transformation—a shift in focus from design creation to integration. Drawing upon a collaborative ecosystem, EDA360 enables the development of complete hardware/software platforms that are application-ready. While traditional EDA concentrates on silicon design creation, EDA360 responds to the needs of both design creators and integrators. It helps creators close the "productivity gap" through improved approaches to design, verification, and implementation. EDA360 also helps integrators close the "profitability gap" by providing new capabilities for IP creation, selection, and integration, and for system optimization.
