  • This paper addresses the modelling difficulties faced by an designer in the development of new interdisciplinary products. It describes a novel approach to tackling these problems. The underlying methodology is based on the object-oriented technology. A unified design object based representation and modelling method is proposed to enhance the scope of product modelling to many phases of the design process, and to simplify the modelling complexity associated with the increased number of modelling methods directly adopted from individual disciplines. This unified modelling representation method encompasses several low level modelling methods and it can integrate the dynamic energy and information systemmore » modelling of mechatronic products. These design object models will greatly facilitate designers, especially those who work on the development of interdisciplinary products, such as mechatronic systems. The paper concludes that a design object-oriented modelling method based on a hybrid modelling representation encompassing bond graph notation, block diagram, and Yourdon diagram, is desirable and feasible for mechatronic system design and modelling.« less
  • Application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), which have traditionally been cost-effective only for high volume applications, can now be designed using high quality, inexpensive tools and can be fabricated in small quantities using MOSIS (Metal Oxide Semiconductor Implementation Service). Numerous computer-aided design tools developed under government sponsorship are available to organizations within the United States for just a media handling fee (typically about $200 each). The tool integration and enhancement activities described in this paper have resulted in a proven set of high quality aids that permit the design of custom and semicustom analog and digital ASICs. Examples of projects implemented usingmore » this tool set are given along with the support activities that are being conducted to transfer this technology to other federal agencies and universities. 13 refs.« less
