    As bipolar circuits assume more of a role in microprocessor oriented systems, it becomes advantageous to extend the application of bipolar technology to a large mask programmable ROM. This paper will describe a 16K bipolar ROM, organized as 2K x 8 bits, which utilizes for its basic memory cell a simple and compact Schottky diode. View full abstract»

    Advances in such new memory technologies as charge-coupled devices, magnetic bubble memories, and beam access memories have opened avenues for innovative applications of these computer elements in future computing systems. These quasi-serial electronic technologies compete on one hand with the random access memories (bipolar, MOS, and core) and, on the other hand, with disk memories (fixed-head di...

    The meaning of reliability varies greatly with its context. In an aerospace or military context, where system reliability requirements are frequently life-critical or mission-critical, reliability means certainty. Such certainty is achieved through design, testing, and conditioning of integrated circuits, components, and systems, as well as through system redundancy. View full abstract»

    With 16K RAM chips already in commercial use and 64K RAM chips being planned, the increasing length of time needed to run test patterns could lead to cost increases that would offset the advantages of the larger devices. For example, many existing tests of the important pattern-sensitive-fault class, such as galloping 0's and 1's,* require a test length proportional to the square of the number of ...

    The problems of providing quality assurance for computer software have received a good deal of attention from the computing community. Such areas as program proving, automatic programming, structured programming, and hierarchical design/development methodologies have all experienced significant growth–largely as a result of the increased attention focussed on them. Program testing, on the ot... View full abstract»

    Software tools can serve as powerful aids in the design, development, test, and maintenance of computer software. So, in light of the recent growth in cost of software relative to total system cost, it should come as no surprise that the subject of software tools has sparked a good deal of interest throughout the computer industry. In response to that interest, this paper provides a comprehensive ... View full abstract»

    The phenomenal growth of the microprocessor business over the last two years has been well covered in the technical literature. Extrapolating from this growth, typical predictions of future trends have suggested that by 1980, microprocessor complexity will increase five to ten times while the speed of the chip will triple.1It seems reasonable to expect this performance at approximately ...
