Low-Power High-Resolution Analog to Digital Converters: by Amir Zjajo

By Amir Zjajo

With the quick development of CMOS fabrication know-how, increasingly more signal-processing features are carried out within the electronic area for a lower price, reduce energy intake, greater yield, and better re-configurability. This has lately generated a very good call for for low-power, low-voltage A/D converters that may be learned in a mainstream deep-submicron CMOS know-how. in spite of the fact that, the discrepancies among lithography wavelengths and circuit characteristic sizes are expanding. reduce energy offer voltages considerably lessen noise margins and raise diversifications in method, machine and layout parameters. accordingly, it's progressively tougher to manage the fabrication approach accurately adequate to keep up uniformity. The inherent randomness of fabrics utilized in fabrication at nanoscopic scales signifies that functionality can be more and more variable, not just from die-to-die but additionally inside each one person die. Parametric variability may be compounded by means of degradation in nanoscale built-in circuits leading to instability of parameters over the years, finally resulting in the improvement of faults. technique edition can't be solved by means of enhancing production tolerances; variability has to be diminished via new equipment expertise or controlled via layout to ensure that scaling to proceed. equally, within-die functionality edition additionally imposes new demanding situations for try out methods.

In an try and deal with those concerns, Low-Power High-Resolution Analog-to-Digital Converters particularly concentrate on: i) bettering the facility potency for the high-speed, and occasional spurious spectral A/D conversion functionality by means of exploring the potential for low-voltage analog layout and calibration ideas, respectively, and ii) improvement of circuit strategies and algorithms to reinforce trying out and debugging capability to discover error dynamically, to isolate and confine faults, and to get well error regularly. The feasibility of the defined tools has been proven via measurements from the silicon prototypes fabricated in common 180nm, 90nm and 65nm CMOS technology.

Understanding Behavioral Synthesis: A Practical Guide to by John P. Elliott

By John P. Elliott

Behavioral Synthesis: a pragmatic consultant to High-Level Design comprises info on new fabric and new interpretations of outdated fabric with an emphasis on useful info. The meant viewers is the ASIC (or high-end FPGA) dressmaker who could be utilizing behavioral synthesis, the executive who may be operating with these designers, or the engineering pupil who's learning modern layout concepts.
state-of-the-art designs are developing large pressures for electronic designers. not just needs to they compress extra performance onto a unmarried IC, yet this needs to be performed on shorter schedules to stick forward in tremendous aggressive markets. to satisfy those opposing calls for, designers needs to paintings at a brand new, greater point of abstraction to successfully make the type of architectural judgements which are severe to the luck of state-of-the-art advanced designs. In different phrases, they need to contain behavioral layout of their circulation.
the most important problem to adopting behavioral layout is altering the mind-set of the fashion designer. rather than describing method performance in nice aspect, the clothier outlines the layout in broader, extra summary phrases. the facility to simply and successfully think about a number of layout possible choices over a variety of rate and function is an exceptionally persuasive cause to make this bounce to a excessive point of abstraction. Designers that learn how to imagine and paintings on the behavioral point will acquire significant merits within the resultant caliber of the ultimate layout.
yet such adjustments in method are tough to accomplish swiftly. schooling is key to creating this transition. Many designers will keep in mind the trouble transitioning from schematic-based layout to RTL layout. Designers that have been new to the know-how frequently felt they had no longer been advised adequate approximately how synthesis labored and they weren't taught tips to successfully write HDL code that may synthesize successfully.
utilizing this specific booklet, a clothier will comprehend what behavioral synthesis instruments are doing (and why) and the way to successfully describe their designs that they're safely synthesized.
CD ROM integrated!
The accompanying CD-ROM comprises the resource code and attempt benches for the 3 case experiences mentioned in Chapters 14, 15 and 16.

Synthesis of Power Distribution to Manage Signal Integrity by Balsha R. Stanisic

By Balsha R. Stanisic

In the early days of VLSI, the layout of the facility distribution for an built-in cir­ cuit used to be fairly uncomplicated. energy distribution --the layout of the geometric topology for the community of wires that attach some of the strength provides, the widths of the indi­ vidual segments for every of those wires, the quantity and site of the facility I/O pins round the outer edge of the chip --was easy as the chips have been less complicated. Few on hand wiring layers compelled floorplans that allowed basic, planar (non-over­ lapping) strength networks. decrease speeds and circuit density made the alternative of the cord widths more uncomplicated: we made them simply fats sufficient to prevent resistive voltage drops because of switching currents within the provide community. And we simply did not want huge, immense num­ bers of strength and flooring pins at the package deal for the chips to paintings. it isn't so uncomplicated to any extent further. elevated integration has compelled us to target reliability matters similar to steel elec­ tromigration, which impacts cord sizing judgements within the strength community. additional steel layers have allowed extra flexibility within the topological format of the facility networks.
