Modern VLSI Design: System-on-Chip Design (3rd Edition) by Wayne Wolf

By Wayne Wolf

A brand new variation of this name is accessible, ISBN-10: 0137145004 ISBN-13: 9780137145003   For electric Engineering and machine Engineering classes that disguise the layout and expertise of very huge scale built-in (VLSI) circuits and structures. can also be used as a VLSI reference for pro VLSI layout engineers, VLSI layout managers, and VLSI CAD engineers. smooth VSLI layout presents a finished “bottom-up” advisor to the layout of VSLI structures, from the actual layout of circuits via procedure structure with specialise in the newest answer for system-on-chip (SOC) layout. simply because VSLI method designers face numerous demanding situations that come with excessive functionality, interconnect delays, low strength, cost effective, and quick layout turnaround time, winning designers needs to comprehend the full layout technique. The 3rd version additionally offers a way more thorough dialogue of description languages, with advent to either Verilog and VHDL. as a result, this ebook offers the complete VSLI layout technique in one quantity.

The system is implemented as transistors. • Layout. The final design for fabrication. Parasitic resistance and capacitance can be extracted from the layout to add to the circuit description for more accurate simulation. Figure 1-8. A hierarchy of design abstractions for integrated circuits. 32 33 Design always requires working down from the top of the abstraction hierarchy and up from the least abstract description. Obviously, work must begin by adding detail to the abstraction—top-down design adds functional detail.

Introduction We will start our study of VLSI design by learning about transistors and wires and how they are fabricated. The basic properties of transistors are clearly important for logic design. Going beyond a minimally-functional logic circuit to a high-performance design requires the consideration of parasitic circuit elements—capacitance and resistance. Those parasitics are created as necessary by-products of the fabrication process which creates the wires and transistors, which gives us a very good reason to 36 37 understand the basics of how integrated circuits are fabricated.

Since they are stopped by the gate oxide, they collect at the top of the channel along the oxide boundary. At a critical voltage called the threshold voltage (Vt), enough electrons have collected at the channel boundary to form an inversion layer—a layer of electrons dense enough to conduct current between the source and the drain. 43 44 The size of the channel region is labeled relative to the direction of current flow: the channel length (L) is along the direction of current flow between source and drain, while the width (W) is perpendicular to current flow.
