The research of the Institute of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) is dedicated to develop and provide algorithms, methods and tools that support the designer in industry with computer aids in his daily circuit and system design tasks. The development of these computer aids requires a combination of circuit design knowledge, mathematical methodology and good software engineering practice.

Research projects at the EDA institute cover a broad range of computer-aided design techniques for digital and analog circuits. The large depth of own research activities across all levels of abstraction - from the architectural level across the logic and circuit level to the layout level - meets the requirements of solving complex design tasks for modern integrated circuit development.
