The Advisor Group on Electron Devices AGED Special Technology Area Review STAR on Computer Aided Design CAD was held in Arlington, VA, on 8, 9, and 10 October 1991. Five formal sessions addressed 1 CAD issues that are associated with platforms, electronic systems, subsystems, and components and circuits related to integration of tools frameworks 2 topics related to modeling and simulation of electronic devices 3 topics related to software tools application programs and 4 topics related to education and training. In addition, two evening sessions were scheduled to provide informal discussion of issues associated with electronic device modeling, circuit simulation and synthesis. Two unscheduled informal evening sessions were provided in response to an audience call for added discussion of issues associated with frameworks and electromagnetic simulation. The purpose of this report is to summarize and present conclusions about the DoDs position on Computer Aided Engineering CAE and to make recommendation for future initiatives and programs. Section II identifies specific CAD requirements and various DoD investment opportunities vis-a-vis military componentsystem needs. Section IV provides a detailed summary of each of the five CAD STAR sessions.
