In order to accurately design metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) integrated circuits, an investment in various computer-aided techniques leads to an efficient use of man-hours and thus a reduction in the time required to complete a design. The path that might be followed in this type of design is reviewed with respect to circuit design, layout, and checking operations. Currently a system is under development at the University of Adelaide to achieve these goals. Both mini and large-scale computers are employed in the system and use is made of a specially designed fast interactive display. Of particular interest are peripheral circuits associated with charge-coupled devices (CCD's). Conclusions are drawn about the relative merits of two analysis programs.
