|摘要:||臺灣為全球IC設計產業的二大國，臺灣的IC設計公司與IC製造公司蓬勃發展，但是，與IC設計產業息息相關的EDA(Electronic Design Automation)電子自動化設計產業在臺灣卻不具知名度，產業相關研究甚少。EDA為IC設計流程中不可或缺的工具，且EDA產業對於IC設計業有重要的影響，因此EDA產業堪稱為IC設計產業的上游，也是驅動IC設計進步的產業，而在臺灣卻僅有一家具規模的EDA產品供應商，思源科技。
As the second largest IC design country, the growth of IC design and IC manufacturing industry in Taiwan was very strong. However, EDA (Electronic Design Automation) industry, which is very important to IC design industry, is not as popular as IC industry in Taiwan. There are very few papers addressing EDA industry. EDA is a necessary utility and used heavily in IC design flow and is also very influential to IC design flow. EDA is not only the upper stream industy of IC design but also the main driver to driver IC design technology to evolve. Under the keen competition from major EDA vendors from US, Springsoft has become the 5th largest EDA vendor in the world. Will the key successful factor from Springsoft considered as a good referencing for the coming EDA companies in Taiwan? In this study, I compare the product lines, merger acquisition history and growth models from major EDA vendors (such as Synopsys and Cadence) and Springsoft. The result from this thesis can be the consultation for future growth to Springsoft and also the reference for coming Taiwanese EDA companies on how to entry the market.
