The period starting in 2017 has witnessed a new wave in the evolution of electronic design automation.  Systems companies including automotive, aerospace and data center companies, have continued their move into the world of IC design. Restrictions on sales to Huawei, government programs to make China self-sufficient in semiconductor electronics and threats of further export restrictions have changed the outlook for the semiconductor industry. In addition, the application of new technologies like machine learning have ushered in a new wave of EDA capabilities.  Dr. Rhines will provide an electronics industry update and discuss future directions for EDA.
