IEEE Design & Test Magazine was originally conceived in late 1982 to cover the nascent field of electronic design automation (EDA). Software tools to automate many parts of the IC design process were becoming essential to support the rapid growth of IC densities and to leverage IC capabilities. The magazine was one of the first nontrade engineering publications dedicated to educating professional engineers about state-of-the-art practices in silicon and systems technology. More than a decade later, its mission statement had evolved to "Make IEEE Design & Test the premiere professional magazine reporting on both innovative recent practice and promising future methods in design and test of electronics and electronics-based systems".
