Abstract: Moderator: Daniel Schweikert -United Technologies Microelectronics Ctr., Colorado Springs, CO As the complexity of integrated circuits increases a t an exponential rate, the design and development costs appear t o be increasing almost as fast. A variety of design methods which may help slow this rate of cost increase have evolved.Proponents of each of the major techniques will discuss their relative merits. To be considered are four key factors.(7)-Conventional industry design in which a high degree of hand p…
