Novel semiconductor devices offer more and more functionality per chip, which makes design of powerful systems possible. However, as discussed in Chapter 1, the inability of available design tools to handle the resulting complexity risks to break the long-standing trend of progress in semiconductor industry within the next 15 years. Consequently, new design methodologies are urgently required.
