    Industrial robots have seen limited use by industries for over a decade but until the auto industry introduced robotics for spot welding applications in the late 60s the robot was not considered seriously. Now they are readily accepted throughout industry. The reasons for their current popularity are the rapidly increasing costs of labor and the seemingly declining productivity of todays workers. ...

    We have observed the effect that software engineering can have on design automation throughout the four years of the Designer's Workbench (DWB) project. DWB is a design aids delivery system that interfaces the user to a variety of applications programs. This paper describes our experience in using various techniques and our conclusions about their value. The improvements that occurred in the secon... View full abstract»

    Designer's Workbench (DWB) is a systematic approach to design aids integration that overcomes most of the barriers that frequently restrict the use of those aids. In combination with the UNIX (FOOTNOTE: UNIX is a trademark of Bell Laboratories.) operating system [1][2], DWB manages both the flow and the form of data that is required by application programs that reside on various computer systems. ...

    The benefits of using and writing software utilities are appreciated by most software engineers. However, many Computer-Aided Design (CAD) systems do not take full advantage of this technology. This could be because good utilities do not exist, because CAD developers are not aware of existing utilities, or because developers do not know what features to include and leave out when they are writing ...

  • An Analytical Method for Compacting Routing Area in Integrated Circuits

    Publication Year: 1982, Page(s):30 - 37
    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (610 KB)

    An analytical method is proposed for solving a routing area compaction problem in building block integrated circuits. Related minimization is performed with a linear programming technique. Minimum channel dimensions are calculated for a preliminary routing; these dimensions are used to construct routing constraints. Placement constraints are added for the interrelations between placement and routi... View full abstract»

  • Optimal Single Row Router

    Publication Year: 1982, Page(s):38 - 45

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (486 KB)

    The single row approach represents a systematic suboptimal approach to the general multilayer rectilinear wire routing problem. With this approach, the single row wiring problem (i.e., one where all the points are collinear) forms the backbone of the general multilayer wiring problem. We consider the problem of generating minimum width layouts for single row wiring problems. Our algorithm, which i... View full abstract»

    A new heuristic algorithm for two-dimensional routing utilizing two distinct layers is described. It is assumed that all terminals are on the boundary of a rectilinear routing region with or without cutout sections. Terminals on vertical boundary segments are assumed to be on one layer and those on horizontal boundary segments are on the other layer. This algorithm finds all possible paths with mi...

    The Yorktown Simulation Engine (YSE) is a special-purpose, highly-parallel programmable machine for the gate-level simulation of logic. It can simulate up to one million gates at a speed of over two billion gate simulations per second; it is estimated that the IBM 3081 processor could have been simulated on the YSE at a rate of 1000 instructions per second. This is far beyond the capabilities of e... View full abstract»

    The Yorktown Simulation Engine (YSE) is a high speed special purpose parallel processor designed and built at the I.B.M. Thomas J. Watson Research Center to simulate the logical operation of large digital networks. A full YSE configuration simulates networks of up to 2,000,000 gates at a rate exceeding 3 billion gate computations per second, doing more simulation in just eight hours than an IBM 37...

    Special-purpose CAD hardware is increasingly being considered as a means to meet the challenge posed to conventional (software-based) CAD tools by the growing complexity of VLSI circuits. In this paper we describe the architecture of a logic simulation machine employing distributed and parallel processing. Our architecture can accommodate different levels of modeling ranging from simple gates to c... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the changing environment of large-scale computer designs as they are influenced by the advance of technology. This changing environment makes it necessary for design verification to be part of the basic design cycle. The design verification methodology presented in this paper represents a minimum scheduled savings of 75% for an LSI machine as compared to any conventional type ... View full abstract»
