This article deals with the efforts of big chipmakers to develop their own electronic design automation (EDA) tools. IBM has 25 years of history, and continues to invest in proprietary EDA tools, according to Tom Reeves, vice president of semiconductor and technology services at IBM. Freescale likewise sees value in developing at least some of its own tools. Sources claim Intel also has a commitment to developing its own tools to improve yield and reduce the time it takes to turn out chips.
