Standards for microprocessors are becoming increasingly important for military and industrial market expansion. This view, expressed by speakers and participants alike, emerged as a recurrent theme at the IEEE Computer Society's microprocessor workshop on the application of dedicated microprocessors in military and industrial systems. The consensus held, however, that standards must be objectively chosen with applications engineers and user communities involved in the decisions and must be "technology transparent" to provide continuity and support for microcomputer development without stifling innovation.
