    In the January 1974 issue of Computer, Art Collmeyer presented several papers describing recent developments in classical design automation. This issue expands on that theme, opening up the wide ranging application of DA techniques. All the papers selected for this issue are drawn from the proceedings of the Tenth Design Automation Workshop held in Portland, Oregon June 25–27, 1973. View full abstract»

    This paper represents a fairly extensive survey of the literature on the interconnection problem. The topics covered are Pin Assignment, Layering, Ordering, Wire List Determination, Spanning Trees, Rectilinear Steiner Trees, and Wire Layout. In addition, several new ideas are presented which could provide for better wire layout. Algorithms are presented in a way that makes them easy to understand,... View full abstract»

    To anyone who has had the slightest connection with the design and construction of large programs for digital computers, it is obvious that this is no trivial task. Many times the design of such programs is woefully inadequate, and the effort required to get them right is tremendous. The sometimes ruinous cost of such inadequate design is well-known.

    Test patterns for testing digital circuits are usually checked on a test verification program to determine if all or most of the possible faults will be detected. Historically, such a test verification program would be accomplished with many simulations: one for each possible fault. View full abstract»

    The traditional method of designing textiles is to fill in patterns of squares on graph paper to represent the finished fabric. For the major classification of looms, the patterns also constitute a specification of how to set up the loom and how to control its moving parts. View full abstract»

    “Supercomputer” is a generic term which could apply to various machines depending on the criteria used. However, only a few computers today have the following characteristics and/or capabilities: • The machine can directly access very large amounts of memory (i.e., 10M-100M bits) and execute meaningful scalar instructions at very high speeds (i.e., 10M-100M instructions per se...
