body (MCC) One of the first, and now one of the largest, US
computer industry research and development consortia.
Founded in late 1982 by major computer and semiconductor
manufacturers, MCC's membership has diversified to include a
broad range of high-profile corporations from electronics,
computers, aerospace, semiconductors, and related industries,
reflecting the full range of companies vital to the life cycle
of Information Technology products. Active involvement of
small- and medium-sized firms and technology users, along with
well-established alliances with government research and
development agencies and leading universities, allows MCC's
partners to maximise the benefit of scarce research and
development resources.
Some of the technical areas in which MCC has distinguished
itself are:
System Architecture and Design (optimise hardware and software
design, provide for scalability and interoperability, allow
rapid prototyping for improved time-to-market, and support the
re-engineering of existing systems for open systems).
Advanced Microelectronics Packaging and Interconnection
(smaller, faster, more powerful, and cost-competitive).
Hardware Systems Engineering (tools and methodologies for
cost-efficient, up-front design of advanced electronic
systems, including modelling and design-for-test techniques to
improve cost, yield, quality, and time-to-market).
Environmentally Conscious Technologies (process control and
optimisation tools, information management and analysis
capabilities, and non-hazardous material alternatives
supporting cost-efficient production, waste minimisation, and
reduced environmental impact).
Distributed Information Technology (managing and maintaining
physically distributed corporate information resources on
different platforms, building blocks for the nationalinformation infrastructure, networking tools and services for
integration within and between companies, and electronic
