Atienza appointed Editor-in-Chief of IEEE TCAD

Professor David Atienza has been appointed Editor-in-Chief by the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) for their flagship publication, IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems (TCAD), for the term 2022-2023.

This nomination consolidates the strong leadership and recognition in the areas of EDA and computing systems engineering of the Institute of Electrical and Micro Engineering (IEM) at the School of Engineering.

The purpose of IEEE TCAD is to publish papers of interest to individuals in the area of computer-aided design (CAD) of integrated circuits and systems composed of analog, digital, mixed-signal, optical, or microwave components. CAD include methods, models, algorithms, and man-machine interfaces for system-level, physical and logical design, including planning, synthesis, partitioning, modeling, simulation, layout, verification, testing, hardware-software co-design and documentation of integrated circuit and system designs of all complexities. Design tools and techniques for evaluating and designing integrated circuits and systems for metrics such as performance, power, reliability, testability, and security are key points of interest in TCAD.
