    The advent of low-cost microcomputer chip sets is having a dramatic impact on the direction of digital design. Except for very cost-sensitive products, most new designs are constructed utilizing programmable logic to replace more conventional random logic designs. The premise of this new logic form is based on the cost savings exhibited by solutions consisting of a small number of different LSI pa... View full abstract»

    The advances made in integrated circuit technology to date have been dramatically greater than the uses which have been made of this technology. Initially, the only use of LSI was for the construction of various types of memories. This is an obvious first choice since memories offer both an orderly repetitive pattern, making implementation easy, and a high gate-to-pin ratio, making very large numb... View full abstract»

    The technology session of the Asilomar Workshop was oriented mainly towards the constraints of future technologies rather than towards discussing present generally-accepted processes. Four specific areas were highlighted: testing of micro-processors, the future of silicon-on-sapphire (SOS) approaches, the impact of integrated injection logic (I2L), and the role of less-high-density tech...

    For computers of all sizes, software has become a critical element in systems design and implementation. As dramatically as the costs of hardware have dropped, the labor-intensive costs of software have risen. In addition, there are no widely accepted and practiced techniques for controlling and estimating software development and manufacturing (size) costs, or forecasting software capability and ...

    The main purpose of this session was to explore the future of microprocessors in high-volume consumer markets. Three speakers provided us with prepared talks—Larry Marsh of General Motors, Gamond Schultz of RAMTEK, and Steve Mayer of Atari. Three further impromptu speakers were solicited at the Workshop—Jim Russell of Essex International, Charley Hobbs of Hobbs Associates, and Larry Ku... View full abstract»

    Worldwide interest in LSI microprocessors and microcomputers has sparked a continuing growth of publications on all aspects of the subject. The bibliography below attempts to list most of the books, journal articles, conference papers, and technical reports in English and foreign languages, gathered since the publication of the compiler's bibliography on the same topic in Computer, July 1974.

    Vertical microprogramming (or, as others say, functional microprogramming or firmware) was introduced in contrast with Wilkes' microprogramming (generally called horizontal or structural microprogramming), and has greatly enhanced the use of microprogramming in control design and implementation. As applied today, the former technique is not yet a way of designing control structures, but an additio... View full abstract»
