Abstract: The Computer Systems Laboratory has been involved in a VLSI research program for one and a half years. The major areas under investigation have included: analysis and synthesis design aids, applications of VLSI to computer graphics, the design of a personal workstation, special purpose chip design, VLSI computer architectures, and hardware specification and verification. Progress on these research problems is discussed, and a research program for the next two years is proposed.
