This special issue on the business of applying microelectronic components (commonly lumped under the term "microprocessors") is dedicated to the proposition that the LSI microelectronics generation is now replacing the MSI TTL generation for the vast majority of applications for electronic control and intelligence. With this transition, the skills repertoire formerly attributed to the "systems man" must now be acquired by the "LSI components man." In effect, the systems engineering chore has moved one step closer to the device engineer.
