Computer-aided Design Techniques deals with the tools used in computer-aided design, problems associated with software development for design, and techniques applied in the development of the REDAC system. The book covers topics such as program design, requirements of a program for general use, and representation of the circuit in a computer; device modeling, general linear modeling, and linear and non-linear transistor modeling; and non-linear transient analysis. Also covered are topics such as layout capacitances and inductances computation; the use of graphic display as a drawing aid for circuit layout; and the writing of design programs. The text is recommended for engineers and physicists who would like to know how computers can aid them in design, as well as computer experts who aim to write programs intended for design.
