IEE Proceedings – Computers and Digital Techniques journal publishes technical papers describing recent research and development work in all aspects of digital system-on-chip design and test of electronic and embedded systems, including the development of design automation tools (methodologies, algorithms and architectures). Papers based on the problems associated with the scaling down of CMOS technology are particularly welcome. It is aimed at researchers, engineers and educators in the fields of computer and digital systems design and test. The key subject areas of interest are:

Design: hardware description languages, high-level and architectural synthesis, hardware/software co-design, platform-based design, system-on-chip architectures and IP cores, embedded systems, logic synthesis, low-power design and power optimisation.

Verification: electrical and timing simulation, hardware/software co-simulation, mixed-domain technology modelling and simulation, power analysis and estimation, interconnect modelling and signal integrity analysis.

Test: design-for-testability, embedded core testing, system-on-chip testing, on-line testing, test quality and reliability, microprocessor testing, low-power testing, fault modelling and fault tolerance, automatic test generation and delay testing.

Processor and System Architectures: general-purpose and application specific processors, computational arithmetic for DSP applications, arithmetic and logic units, cache memories, memory management, co-processors and accelerators, systems and networks on chip, embedded cores, platforms, multiprocessors, distributed systems, communication protocols and low-power issues.

Configurable Computing: embedded cores, FPGAs, rapid prototyping, adaptive computing, evolvable and reconfigurable hardware.

Case Studies: state-of-the-art CAD/EDA tools, applications in industrial designs, and design frameworks.
