An overview is given of Korean VLSI and CAD technology, which did not develop naturally as it did in more advanced countries. Korean engineers had no electronic systems developed domestically for studying bipolar and MOS IC design. Consequently, they had to apply reverse engineering to the problem, which slowed development considerably. In 1982, the Korean government initiated the national project specifically to speed the progress of electronic technology development. Since then, VLSI design and CAD technology have begun to spread throughout the country. A prototype CAD system, called EDAS, was developed this year, and the project's goal has become the establishment of fully domestic VLSI CAD technology by 1991.<>
