Electrical Design of a High Speed Computer Package

by E. E. Davidson
A methodology for optimizing the design of an electrical packaging system for a high speed computer is described. The pertinent parameters are first defined and their sensitivities are derived so that the proper design trade-offs can ultimately be made. From this procedure, a set of rules is generated for driving a computer aided design system. Finally, there is a discussion of design optimization and circuit and package effects on machine performance.
