The IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation, also called IEEE CEDA, or Council on EDA, or just CEDA, is an organizational unit of the IEEE. It was started since many of the member societies have a common interest in electronic design automation, or EDA. CEDA has six member societies, namely: Antennas and Propagation, Circuits and Systems, Computer, Electron Devices, Microwave Theory and Techniques, and Solid-State Circuits Societies.
The constitution of CEDA describes its field of interest:
The field of interest of the council spans the theory, implementation and use of EDA/CAD tools to design integrated electronic circuits and systems. This includes tools that automate all levels of the design, analysis and verification of hardware and embedded software up to and including complete working systems.
CEDA sponsors conference and publications on EDA topics, encourages academic research in EDA, and provides tools to member societies. It also schedules distinguished speaker series, archiving these presentations on the web. CEDA publishes newsletters and updates on activities in design automation.
CEDA sponsors two of the IEEE publications:
IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems
