Advanced Systems Architectures Ltd has announced that its Computer-Aided Design tool for real-time systems builders, Auto-G, is now available on a wider range of machines. Previously the tool could only be used on the company’s own Sofchip Processor or the MG-1 from Whitechapel Workstations Ltd, but it can now also be used on Sun Microsystems’ workstations, the DEC VAXStation II/GPX and the Atari 1040ST home computer. Auto-G provides a graphical means of capturing user requirements, analysing them, and creating consistent formal designs and specifications – G-Diagrams. The tool is written in C and can be used to create a stand-alone Auto-G workstation or accessed as part of a network. A single-user workstation licence for Auto-G costs UKP15,000. The Camberley, Surrey-based company says that it will implement Auto-G on other systems according to users demand. Advanced Systems Architectures is pinning its hopes on Auto-G to double its annual turnover: about UKP1m worth of Auto-G sales are expected during 1987 where in 1986 about 12.5% of ASA’s UKP850,000 turnover came from Auto-G. The company also expects staffing levels to double to 50 by the end of the year. US sales of Auto-G are expected to be significant and the company says it is in negotiations with a number of system contractors there.
