first use of the word netlist[edit]

I'm trying to track down the first use of the word netlist in the context of electrical engineering. Any information might help. --Siddhant (talk) 20:47, 9 March 2015 (UTC)


It seems like at least some of the article has been copied verbatim from this patent application:

@TropicalFishes: Which part has been copied? BTW, in the future please sign your edits as explained in WP:SIGNATURES. Lambtron (talk) 12:54, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
@Lambtron: The part I noticed was: ""Instance based netlists usually provide a list of the instances used in a design. Along with each instance, either an ordered list of net names is provided, or a list of pairs provided, of an instance port name, along with the net name to which that port is connected. In this kind of description, the list of nets can be gathered from the connection lists, and there is no place to associate particular attributes with the nets themselves. SPICE is an example of instance-based netlists" Which comes from just under the Definitions section in the patent application. TropicalFishes (talk) 17:38, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
