SIGDA is committed to advancing the skills and knowledge of electronic design automation professionals and students throughout the world. We do so in a variety of ways: sponsoring and organizing international workshops, symposia and conferences; leading the way in capturing archival electronic design automation publications on CD-ROM; providing travel grants to sponsored workshops, symposia and conferences; pioneering the maintenance and distribution of electronic design automation benchmarks; hosting university and government researchers for software demonstrations at the University Booth at DAC and ICCAD; publishing the SIGDA Newsletter; maintaining a World Wide Web access site on Internet; and by initiating the new ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems.
The council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) was established to foster design automation of electronic circuits and systems at all levels, by means of publications, conferences, workshops and lecture activities. The CEDA field of interest 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.
IEEE/CEDA, an organizational unit (OU) of IEEE, has six member societies: Antennas and Propagation, Circuits and Systems, Computer, Electron Devices, Microwave Theory and Techniques, and Solid-State Circuits Societies.
The IEEE Circuits and Systems Society's field of interest spans the theory, analysis, design (computer aided design), and practical implementation of circuits, and the application of circuit theoretic techniques to systems and to signal processing. The coverage of this field includes the spectrum of activities from, and including, basic scientific theory to industrial applications.
The IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS) believes that the Grand Engineering Challenges of the 21st century can only be addressed in an inter-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary manner. The Society's unique and profound expertise in Circuits, Systems, Signals, Modeling, Analysis, and Design can have a decisive impact on important issues such as Sustainable Energy, Bio-Health, Green Information Technology, Nano-Technology, and Scalable Information Technology Systems. Our mission is to foster CASS members across disciplines to address humanity’s grand challenges by conceiving and pioneering solutions to fundamental and applied problems in circuits and systems.
The IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS) is one of the technical societies & councils that you can join as an IEEE member. EDS began in 1952 as a committee of the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE). With the merger in 1963 of the IRE and the American Institute of Radio Engineers, EDS became a technical group under the newly formed IEEE. In 1976, EDS became a society of IEEE. To respond to the more complex society structure and increased business activities, the Society established an Executive Office in 1990.
