Abstract : The time and cost required for development of integral circuits can be greatly reduced by applying modern techniques of computer-aided design. In the planned man/machine system, the designer will rapidly construct mask layouts by interacting with a high-speed digital computer via a cathode-ray tube display. The present prototype system simulates this action through plotted displays and a symbolic language. The design language uses a problem-oriented vocabulary of commands (MOVE, BEND, MOAT, etc.) in an easily learned English-like syntax. A set of symbolic expressions enables the designer to place components precisely without concerning himself with actual dimensions and tolerances. The computer automatically obeys built-in rules to insure consistency with the selected fabrication processes. (Author)
