Abstract

BACKGROUND OF THE PROBLEM: Today's software is increasingly suffering From more features which make a program more com- plex and require more CPU horsepower in order to run. Anyone that has a 68030-based Macintosh, worked with Microsoft's Excel 2.2 and upgraded to 4.0 has experienced this first-hand. For our RF Analyzer product the features we want to support cause us to fall into the same CPU-speed limiting trap. The product needs to be usable on a range of PCs from 80286s through Pentiums.
