    This paper describes a program which adds components to an electrical circuit so as to meet a specified target performance. The circuit grows by the apparently random addition of new components. Examples are given of its application to generating equivalent circuits for components used in microwave integrated circuits and to the design of wideband microwave transistor amplifiers. Amplifier circuit... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the ALGIC silicon compiler system for digital signal processing applications. Starting from a structural and functional description of a digital VLSI circuit, ALGIC generates automatically the corresponding layout in a full-custom design style. The main components of ALGIC are a system monitor module, a parametrisable macro-cell generator, an appropriate floorplanner giving a ... View full abstract»

  • CAENIC-user-characterised, electronic systems development software

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):200 - 205
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (543 KB)

    This article describes the development of a CAE software system, called CAENIC, that enables application domain users to create electronic systems regardless of any lack of high-level electronic engineering skill. As the method will shorten design and building time from weeks to days, it should also be useful to electronic engineers as the starting point of more sophisticated designs. While being,...

  • Thermocouple temperature sensor CAD tool

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):206 - 210
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (467 KB)

    This article describes a knowledge-based, natural-language-interfaced, CAD software tool for designing the thermal, mechanical and electronic aspects of a thermocouple temperature sensor. This tool is one of several embedded in a computer-aided engineering software environment for supporting casual users who need to create and apply measurement systems.<> View full abstract»

    Although geometric modelling packages have advantages over simple drafting systems, the needs of the engineering designer are such that further improvements in the user interface of modern CAD systems are required. This paper proposes a user interface based on engineering description, in which the component shapes and other attributes are described as a collection of manufacturing-related features...
