Abstract

In recent years, digital electronics have manifestly entered society. Silicon processing technology has evolved in such a way that it has become feasible to integrate entire systems on a single silicon chip. Today, commercial digital CMOS chips contain between 100,000 and 1,000,000 switching devices. This computational power is sufficient to implement real-time digital applications that formerly were impossible to build. Applications that traditionally were built using analogue components, are nowadays being digitised. Moreover, completely new digital applications are being conceived. These new applications show there is a market for integrated digital products: Compact Disk, High Definition Television, Integrated Systems Digital Network (ISDN), digital radio, desk top publishing, digital copiers and space satellite applications.
