VLSI-Based System Design Challenges in the Early 1990s
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.
