About EDA

EDA tools are used in the designing of electronic systems. The range of products where these tools can be used is extremely wide as it can vary for the chips that are used in computers or mobile devices and satellites. An MCM is usually an electronic assembly where multiple integrated circuits (ICs), semiconductor dies, and other discrete components are integrated, generally on a unifying substrate, so that all the components can function as a single component. EDA for PCB and MCM is a set of software tools that are required to design complex electronic system circuits on PCB and MCM.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global electronic design automation (EDA) for PCB and MCM market to grow at a CAGR of 3.27% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Electronic Design Automation (EDA) for PCB and MCM Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global electronic design automation (EDA) for PCB and MCM market: Synopsys, Cadence Design Systems, and Mentor Graphics.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Altium Limited, ANSYS, Fujitsu, Infinite Graphics Incorporated, NEC, Orbotech, and Zuken.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The availability of multiple functions on a single platform is an emerging trend in the semiconductor market. The rapid technological advances in electronic devices such as smartphones, notebooks, laptops, and ultrabooks have increased the use of these devices as multifunctional terminals that offer a range of new applications on a single platform.”

According to the report, one of the key drivers for market growth will be high investments in R&D. R&D is an integral part of the semiconductor market. In 2015, the highest R&D investment in the semiconductor industry amounted to $56.4 billion. The year-over year growth in the spending was just 0.5% compared to the industry standard of 13% per year since 2010. The growth rate achieved in 2015 was the lowest since the downturn of 2009 and was below the CAGR of 4% during 2005-2015.

Further, the report states that design automation is the development of design methods best suited to address the challenges posed by emerging technologies. Design methods were initially based on standard cells and synchronous timing. The future, however, offers a bleak picture for EDA software tool developers. The advent of nanoscale designs has coupled EDA developers with significant complexity challenges. They need to develop design methods that can continue to scale in the face of the growing miniaturization of semiconductor devices. EDA vendors need to take care of the following attributes that are critical for their success. Maintaining all the attributes at the same time possesses a huge challenge for the vendors.
