A. Lebedev writes about the conversion to third-generation design techniques and large-scale integration. An article surveying solid-state technology covers such subjects as integrated circuits, elionics (electron- and ion-beam techniques), optoelectronics, dielectronics, and acoustoelectronics. An article on the the ASP automated design system, which uses the M-220 computer, examines ASP's basic design stages and designer/computer interaction during mathematical modeling and machine design. Other articles consider: (1) the new Dnepr-2 control system, (2) a hybrid analog-digital system for use in physics and chemistry research, and (3) the use of activated alkali halide crystals as luminescent storage cells. A [Pravda] editorial on the burgeoning "information industry" is also included.
