Conference paper


As electronic technologies decrease in cost and so find their way into everyday life at an increasing rate, it is utility and ease of use that play a key role in determining the success or failure of a product or product family Innovations in user interface and a proliferation of personal technologies will obsolete general-purpose computing as an end-user technology during the 1990s and the general-purpose computer companies of today will have to adapt very quickly to survive. Markets such as personal, mobile communications systems, the “home bus,” and “virtual reality” interfaces will play a key role in driving these changes. To meet these challenges a number of new base technologies must be developed, including new packaging technologies, computer-aided design and engineering systems, and design approaches for low power logic and memory.
