These drafts were self-published on the laser printing systems at Xerox PARC, and used to document and evolve the Mead-Conway design methods prior to the book's publication by Addison-Wesley in the fall of The draft texts played a key role in the emergence of the Mead-Conway methods.

You can access all three versions in PDF format at the links below. Historical background:. These prepublication versions were used in a succession of integrated circuit and system design courses, in order to test and refine the design methods and their exposition in the text. The first three chapters of the text prepublication version 1 were used in the fall of '77 by Carver Mead at Caltech and Carlo Sequin at U.

Berkeley, as course notes within courses on integrated circuit design. A draft of the full nine chapters of the text prepublication version 3 was completed in the summer of and used in courses at Caltech and U.

The final draft of the textbook was compiled from accumulated revisions of version 3, and published by Addison-Wesley in the fall of , just in time for courses at many universities that fall and thus in time for MPC Scans of the originals of all three drafts of the text are posted online in this VLSI Archive in PDF format , enabling readers to reconstruct the progress of the work on the evolving design methods and text.

Many of the pages in the drafts contain dated filenames for printed files, enabling changes to be tracked over time. Mike's book captures the youthful spirit of adventure in the air at PARC at the time, and tells the amazing story of how modern networked personal computing was born there during the 's. Access to this pioneering computing infrastructure provided the Mead-Conway team with access to 'secret weapons' for the rapid development of engineering knowledge in ways that were unknown elsewhere in that day.

Mead & Conway revolution

When the integrated circuit was originally invented and commercialized, the initial chip designers were co-located with the physicists, engineers and factories that understood integrated circuit technology. At that time, fewer than transistors would fit in an integrated circuit "chip". The design capability for such circuits was centered in industry, with universities struggling to catch up. Soon, the number of transistors which fit in a chip started doubling every two years. Much more complex circuits could then fit on a single chip, but the device physicists who fabricated the chips were not experts in electronic circuit design, so their designs were limited more by their expertise and imaginations than by limitations in the technology. Professor Carver Mead , who popularized the term " Moore's law " for this doubling trend, called for a separation of design from technology throughout the s.
