Abstract

A computer-aided layout program MISHA has been developed for the layout of thick-film substrates. The program consists of several modules to carry out the various steps involved in the layout process. A complete layout is produced starting from a library of available components and the network-description of the circuit. Manual interference of the user with the program is possible at every step in the layout process. The program is written in standard FORTRAN IV and runs on a PDP 11/40 minicomputer.
