More than a decade has elapsed since the publication of the last thorough evaluation of the global state of superconductor electronic (SCE) design software, and seven years since the publication of the 2005 SCENET roadmap. In this work we discuss the progress made to date on SCE design software, present a critical analysis of the capabilities of the software available today, and attempt to lay the foundation of a roadmap for SCE design software to complement published hardware and technology roadmaps. The discussion includes design techniques, circuit optimizers, logic simulators, inductance calculators, simulation engines, full-wave EM solvers and the NioCAD project. We also discuss requirements not yet met.
