ABSTRACT
A mechanism for integrated simulators into CAD (computer-aided design) systems have been implemented to provide high-performance interaction during the course of the design. This mechanism replaces slow text-based interfaces by a persistent programming technique where the database is viewed as an extension of dynamically allocated memory. Organization of simulation data and implementation of the interface mechanism are described.
