This item was taken from the IEEE Periodical ' EDA in IBM: past, present, and future ' Throughout its history, from the early four-circuit gate-array chips of the late 1960s to today's billion-transistor multichip module, IBM has invested in tools to support its leading-edge technology and high-performance product development. The combination of demanding designs and close cooperation among product, technology, and tool development has given rise to many innovations in the electronic design automation (EDA) area and provided IBM with a significant competitive advantage. This paper highlights IBM's contributions over the last four decades and presents a view of the future, where the best methods of multimillion gate ASIC and gigahertz microprocessor design are converged to enable highly productive system-on-a-chip designs that include widely diverse hardware and software components.
