    NEDO's discussion document on advanced manufacturing in electronics published last year warned that any reluctance to adopt advanced design and manufacturing technology would have serious consequences for the future of the UK electronics industry. Mindful of the difficulties in obtaining unbiased advice when making a first investment in such technology, the DTI has set up a network of established ... View full abstract»

    This paper presents details of a postprocessor system designed to improve the graphical presentation of the results of finite-element stress analysis. The CSIG graphics postprocessor accesses the results of finite-element analysis and data from the finite-element model, and uses a modified Wornock hidden-surface removal algorithm for the display of colour stress images of two- and three-dimensiona...

    With the improved performance provided by modern 16 bit microcomputers and the development of PC networking systems, the distinction between microcomputer- and traditional minicomputer-based CADCAM systems has become less clear than was the case just a few years ago. As an alternative classification this article considers the concept of a `small¿¿ CADCAM system, distinguished in terms of cost, siz... View full abstract»

    This paper provides an overview of the current developments in general-purpose automatic test equipment (GPATE) and examines some of the pitfalls in its use. It reviews the range of types of GPATE currently available, explores the latest developments in GPATE technology and looks ahead to some of the advances in digital and analogue techniques, as related to the needs of GPATE systems.

    EDIF is an emerging de facto industry standard for the interchange of electronic design information. Its eventual aim is to encompass all the data required to describe the design and manufacture of electronic equipments. The initial specification, published in March 1985, focuses on the transfer of basic data for semi-custom very large-scale integration design, but planned extensions in later vers...
