IN AN earlier paper , aspects of LSI were discussed that provide strong motivation for using programmed logic arrays for implementation of computer functions. These factors include extended use of a single chip design, the necessity to design for function, effective fault analysis and testing, and minimal design errors and changes. The approach to LSI exemplified by PLA's will continue to be useful in VLSI, since the factors cited for large-scale integration will be even more prominent in the very large-scale integration environment with its demand for more on-chip function.
