Not only is it a reduced-scope duplicate of the closed FPGA/ASIC proposal, this will handily fit on Electronics.SE

The board topic suggested was really appropriate as it covered a rather large area of developing, verifying, debugging and manufacturing of physical integrated circuits manufactured in silicon foundries. FPGA/ASIC work sits at a weird intersection of hardware and software realm. This involves using High level software code(verilog/vhdl/bluespec,chisel etc.) ...

I wouldn't consider "Embedded Systems" to be the same as "FPGA and ASIC". However, the discussion in an "Embedded Systems" board would mostly be about software design such as C or C++ or python, etc used with linux or other realtime operating system, or how it would talk with some IC on the board using PCIe address space, or ...

Specific Applications of Electronics are too small of a subject to fit the broad subject of "FPGA and ASIC", specifically related to question with regards to how to run these tools and the many cryptic compiler messages that they tend to produce. "FPGA and ASIC" addresses the technical problems of using the EDA tools related to FPGA and ...

Its not a small subset of Electrical Engineering. Its a BIG subset of Electrical Engineering that also overlaps with the field of "Computer Engineering" and is VERY underserved on the Electrical Engineering board. In fact, Electrical Engineering board can't fully serve the FPGA area, and they decide to delete most of the questions as off topic. ...
