    The authors review the research done on a structured, symbol-based IC design method called path programmable logic (PPL). They explain the logic partitioning strategy on which PPL is based. Compared to full-custom design methods, the PPL methods permits an order of magnitude reduction in design time. In most cases, the density of the circuits designed using the PPL method approaches or surpasses t... View full abstract»

    High-level technical information on Sonet (synchronous optical network) B-ISDN (broadband integrated services digital network) protocols, and interface structures is provided. Since the B-ISDN protocol standards to be used in the Broadband Reference Model are currently being discussed in the CCITT, most of the standards are not yet available. Therefore, some of the protocols described here are not... View full abstract»

    The author describes a series of deadlock detection techniques based on centralized, hierarchical, and distributed control organizations. The point of view is that of practical implications. An up-to-date and comprehensive survey of deadlock detection algorithms is presented, their merits and drawbacks are discussed, and their performances (delays as well as message complexity) are compared. Relat... View full abstract»
