What is convergence (EDA)?
In electronics circuit design, convergence often refers to the achievement of a final design solution in which all design constraints have been successfully met. This may involve balancing and trading off two or more requirements that are in opposition with one another, such as timing delay versus area.

Users and vendors on a DAC panel designed to point out design flow bottlenecks identified EDA tools as the most culpable.
2000-02-11 Timing-Driven Flow (TDF) SLI ASIC design flow with commercial EDA tools
The Timing-Driven Flow (TDF) is the first state-of-the-art design methodology based on open EDA tools and standards to successfully address the challenge of deep sub-micron timing convergence. Without TDF it is not uncommon for a high-gate-count, high-complexity design with tight timing specifications to go through 10-20 iterations between synthesis and layout and still fail to meet timing. This application note describes the function of the TDF in an ASIC application.
2011-04-01 The unfulfilled dream of a grand, unifying EDA database
Conceptualized as the solution to the problem of tool interoperability over a decade ago, the idea of a unifying open-source database for EDA has yet to be realized.
2001-05-01 The need for an EDA API
There are a lot of skepticism with Cadence's IE (Integration Ensemble) tool-with capabilities that include floorplanning, RTL synthesis, placement, routing, extraction and analysis. The arguments for a single tool that encompasses all these features are compelling, but will the tools live up to engineer's expectations?
