              REQUEST for DISCUSSION:  comp.cad.compass
              -----------------------------------------

This is a request for discussion of the proposal to create an unmoderated
Usenet newsgroup called "comp.cad.compass".  This name (and position in
the tree) is not final;  other suggestions are welcome during the discussion.
(Another possibility is "comp.sys.compass")

Charter:
--------
The proposed newsgroup "comp.cad.compass" will serve as a medium for
discussing issues and exchanging information with regards to the Compass
Design Automation EDA tools.

Rationale:
----------
The correct use and application of EDA software is pivotal to the success of
integrated circuit design.  A significant number of designers are using
the Compass Design Automation tools to develop integrated circuits.  The
Compass Design Automation tools are very sophisticated and complex.  As with
all EDA software, there are subtle 'tricks' and procedures that can help a
designer perform better when using the Compass Design Automation tools.  A
newsgroup addressing this EDA tool set will allow both users and developers of
the Compass Design Automation software to exchange information.  This offers
an increased 'pool-of-information' concerning these tools that can be used to
help designers make better use of the Compass Design Automation software.  The
information can also be helpful in Compass Design Automation's efforts to
improve the tools.

Contents:
---------
The following topics would be appropriate for the newsgroup:

-Useful hints on using the Compass Design Automation Software more
 effectively
-Identification of bugs/shortcomings in the software
-Suggestions for improving the design tools
-Information regarding integration of the Compass Design Automation tools with
 other design software
-Hardware related issues when using the tools
-Applications notes
-Scripts/programs which can assist in doing a design using the Compass Design
 Automation software
-Benchmarks
-Information regarding Compass User Group activities

Discussion Period:
------------------
The discussion period will be from April 6 to May 6, 1993.  Please post
follow-up discussion  to news.groups.  After that period, if enough interest
is shown and a consensus is reached, a CVF (call-for-votes) will be posted
and a vote will be run.  The voting period will last for another 31 days.
