    The semiconductor industry is challenged to sustain the historical rate of exponential growth in product innovation and productivity for as long into the future as possible. If this challenge is to be met, substantial investments in chip-design automation are required to improve design capabilities and to narrow the widening gap between projected increases in device complexity and design productiv...

    Mechatronics is the integration of electrical and electronic functions with mechanical and related functions. At the microscale, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) strives to integrate those functions as well. Therefore micromechatronics and MEMS are basically identical in nature. The integration of technologies goes beyond an assemblage of subsystems. A true micromechatronic system addresses a... View full abstract»

    Modular products and reconfigurable testing processes are crucial in modern manufacturing. This paper discusses the concept of product modularity, test modules of increased reusability and exchangeability, and some aspects of design for testability. A methodology for design of modular products for testability in the presence of testing modules is developed. An integrated approach to design of modu... View full abstract»

    Storage technology is an essential part of computing. The most common device currently in use to store data is the direct access storage device (DASD) or disk drives as they are commonly known. Since their inception in 1956, DASD's have undergone a revolutionary change, and now several generations later store, retrieve, and archive massive quantities of data reliably at a rate (data rate) that ren...

    Two case studies on the design of mechatronic products are presented here. These cases were written by authors of distinct backgrounds. The first case study was developed by Burford Furman, an academician with strong industrial experience. It is related to the design of atomic force microscopes (AFM's) for measuring the topography of surfaces at submicron precision. The case demonstrates the appli... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a tool for the real-time diagnosis of integrated circuit fabrication equipment. The approach focuses on integrating neural networks into an expert system. The system employs evidential reasoning to identify malfunctions by combining evidence originating from equipment maintenance history, on-line sensor data, and in-line post-process measurements. Neural networks are used in th... View full abstract»
