The Manufacturing Release Processing System for handling the dual design methodology employed by IBM in the design of the 3081 is described in this paper. This methodology consists of (Part 1) the design of basic building blocks, such as standard circuits and structured gate arrays, on which these standard circuits can be placed and interconnected during (Part 2), when numerous unique devices are designed to perform the various logical functions within the processor. This dual design… CONTINUE READING
