The primary output of this study contract as defined by the sponsoring organization is to determine a generic VHSIC ATS architecture for VHSIC-based Line Replaceable Modules LRMs. This was accomplished by a systematic evaluation of all known factors impacting architecture considerations. A recommended architecture was formulated by combining VHSIC-based LRM characteristics technology implementation, performance parameters and imposed standards with ATS requirements technologytest methods and test equipment standards. The VHSIC-based LRM survey, conducted as part of the contract workscope, has currently yielded data on a population of 29 LRMs. The survey information has been entered and compiled in the VHSIC ATS Knowledge Base. Querying the Knowledge using selected sort criteria Appendix E indicates a wide variety of implementations in both circuit complexity MSI through VLSI and processes bipolar, CMOS, GaAS, etc. to achieve LRM functions VHSIC and non-VHSIC.
