In the last half century, systems such as those incorporated in electronic equipment and their constituent semiconductors coexisted favorably and supplemented each other while individually performing their own duties. In the 1990s, while low-price semiconductors with yet higher performance than those required by the systems became available, the market however started to see critical quality problems and the manpower and time required for system development increased. These problems are considered to be a result of the improper use of computer-aided design (CAD) that kept pouring an abundant supply of semiconductors into hardware logic circuits and program codes while failing to design what the systems should be like.

Presenting two systems which the authors are currently developing, this paper proposes a new method of designing effective systems while minimizing the costs necessary for system development, production and operation.
