- Introduction to VLSI Systems,
- published in late fall, 1979
- Within a few years, this seminal
text was adopted for chip design courses at over 100 universities
thoughout the world.
- This text and the associated "MOSIS"
prototyping infrastructure based on Lynn's MPC79 innovations
(see below) were largely responsible for the huge wave of chip
design innovations during the 80's and 90's, especially in Silicon
