About this book


Even elementary school students of today know that electronics can do fan­ tastic things. Electronic calculators make arithmetic easy. An electronic box connected to your TV set provides a wonderful array of games. Electron­ ic boxes can translate languages! Electronics has even changed watches from a pair of hands to a set of digits. Integrated circuit (IC) chips which use transistors to store information in binary form and perform bin­ ary arithmetic make all of this possible. In just a short twenty years the field of integrated circuits has progressed from a few transistors per chip to thousands of transistors per chip. Since the early 1960's, the field has progressed from chips containing several transistors performing simple functions such as OR and AND functions to chips presently available which contain thousands of transistors performing a wide range of memory, control and arithmetic functions. The number of special journal issues, conferences, workshops, seminars, etc. related to the field of IC's is large. l~hile no single volume could adequately summarize the field, this volume attempts to provide a summary of some of the important issues and factors for Very Large Scale Integra­ tion (VLSI) from the perspective of several authors deeply involved in the field. In the field of VLSI, composed of many facets and disciplines, the de­ mand for engineers, physicists and chemists trained in IC skills exceeds supply.
