EDA is an abbreviation for electronic design automation. It is a software application that is used to develop electronic circuits. To ease the designing of integrated circuits on a large scale, companies use EDA tools. EDA tools in VLSI help the VLSI engineers to design chips For various electronic applications such as processors for mobile and laptops. There are several EDA tools in the VLSI industry. Let us walk through a few EDA companies and their tools useful for the synthesis, implementation and simulation of electronic circuits. Some EDA tools are free to use, while others require a license.
NICE .very useful for beginners especially.
