May/June 1986 (vol. 3 no. 3)
pp. 31-37
Rolf-dieter Fiebrich, Thinking Machines Corporation
This article describes a VLSI CAD workstation with a massively parallel computer the connection machine, as hardware accelerator.The connection machine offers workstation users general-purpose acceleration capabilities and high interactivity. Workstationsoftware includes a novel CAD-system kernel and tools operating on the connection machine. The system kernel, designed topermit efficient interfaces to existing tools and tool environments, also includes more advanced design tools (proceduraltools, for example) providing a suitable basis for knowledge-based tool development.
