About this book

Introduction

Low-Power Digital VLSI Design: Circuits and Systems addresses both process technologies and device modeling. Power dissipation in CMOS circuits, several practical circuit examples, and low-power techniques are discussed. Low-voltage issues for digital CMOS and BiCMOS circuits are emphasized. The book also provides an extensive study of advanced CMOS subsystem design. A low-power design methodology is presented with various power minimization techniques at the circuit, logic, architecture and algorithm levels.
Features:
  • Low-voltage CMOS device modeling, technology files, design rules
  • Switching activity concept, low-power guidelines to engineering practice
  • Pass-transistor logic families
  • Power dissipation of I/O circuits
  • Multi- and low-VT CMOS logic, static power reduction circuit techniques
  • State of the art design of low-voltage BiCMOS and CMOS circuits
  • Low-power techniques in CMOS SRAMS and DRAMS
  • Low-power on-chip voltage down converter design
  • Numerous advanced CMOS subsystems (e.g. adders, multipliers, data path, memories, regular structures, phase-locked loops) with several design options trading power, delay and area
  • Low-power design methodology, power estimation techniques
  • Power reduction techniques at the logic, architecture and algorithm levels
  • More than 190 circuits explained at the transistor level.
