The astonishing advances in integrated circuit complexity have left system designers with an embarrass. ment of riches; our capabilities in producing VLSl components is outstripping our design and test capabilities. The result i s a burgeoning revolution in system and integrated circuit design.Seven years ago, two trends were discernable: the modular or building block approach and the custom logic approach.The first method maximized the use of general purpose LSI circuits and led toward modular and distribute…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
