Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) Technology explores and discusses the different aspects of the ASIC technology experienced during the 1990s. The topics of the chapters range from the ASIC business, model, marketing, and development up to its testability, packaging, and quality and reliability. An introductory chapter begins the discussion and tackles the historical perspective and the classification of the ASIC technology. Chapters 2 and 3 cover the business side of the technology as it discusses the market dynamics and marketing strategies. The following chapters focus on the product itself and deal with the design and model and library development. Computer-aided design tools and systems are included in the discussion. Manufacturing and packaging of ASICs are also given attention in the book. Finally, the last three chapters present the application, testability, and reliability of ASIC technology. The text can be of most help to students in the fields of microelectronics, computer technology, and engineering.

This comprehensive book on application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) describes the latest methods in VLSI-systems design. ASIC design, using commercial tools and pre-designed cell libraries, is the fastest, most cost-effective, and least error-prone method of IC design. As a consequence, ASICs and ASIC-design methods have become increasingly popular in industry for a wide range of applications. The book covers both semicustom and programmable ASIC types. After describing the fundamentals of digital logic design and the physical features of each ASIC type, the book turns to ASIC logic design - design entry, logic synthesis, simulation, and test - and then to physical design - partitioning, floorplanning, placement, and routing. You will find here, in practical well-explained detail, everything you need to know to understand the design of an ASIC, and everything you must do to begin and to complete your own design. Features Broad coverage includes, in one information-packed volume, cell-based ICs, gate arrays, field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), and complex programmable logic devices (PLDs). Examples throughout the book have been checked with a wide range of commercial tools to ensure their accuracy and utility. Separate chapters and appendixes on both Verilog and VHDL, including material from IEEE standards, serve as a complete reference for high-level, ASIC-design entry. As in other landmark VLSI books published by Addison-Wesley - from Mead and Conway to Weste and Eshraghian - the author's teaching expertise and industry experience illuminate the presentation of useful design methods. Any engineer, manager, or student who is working with ASICs in a design project, or who is simply interested in knowing more about the different ASIC types and design styles, will find this book to be an invaluable resource, reference, and guide.

Reviewers tell us that Case/Fair is one of the all-time bestselling principles of economics texts because they trust it to be clear, thorough and complete. This well-respected author team is joined for the 9th edition by a new co-author, Sharon Oster. Sharon's research and teaching experience brings new coverage of modern topics and an applied approach to economic theory, as demonstrated in the new Economics in Practice feature. Introduction to Economics; Concepts and Problems in Macroeconomics; The Core of Macroeconomic Theory; Further Macroeconomic Issues; The World Economy For those looking for a trusted and authoritative principles of macroeconomics text that focuses on international econmies as well as the Keynesian Cross. Case/Fair/Oster believe strongly, that a text should use the Keynesian Cross carefully and systematically, to build up to the AD/AS model. One of the great benefits of this approach, is that students of economics won't mistakenly apply what they learned about simple demand and supply to aggregate demand & supply. (A detailed summary of this approach can be found in the preface).

A Guide to Analog ASICs

A Guide to Analog ASICs is a working reference for the engineer who regularly uses analog custom technology or plans to use it in a product. The book includes a detailed analysis of analog and digital application specific integrated circuits (ASICs), the vendor selection process, cost trade-offs, and design-options (in-house, design center, use of vendor design resources). After introducing the development of analog ASICs, ASIC vendors, development cycles, and cost considerations, the text reviews basic global semiconductor technology, IC fabrication techniques, and the limitations of linear IC design. The components found inside the chip are integrated resistors, capacitors, transistors, diodes, and metal connections. The text explains building block circuits, how these are used to construct complex circuitry, and how the Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis (SPICE) can check for circuit performance. The selection of the chip's package is important and depends on several factors, such as thermal size, physical size, PC board technology, number of pins, die size. When tested, a typical product should have a failure rate that follows a curve composed of a failure rate (X-axis) versus time (Y-axis). The book also provides suggestions on vendor selections including vendor identification, site visitation, and price negotiations. The book is suitable for computer engineers, designers of industrial processes, and researchers involved in electrical, computer, or other devices using integrated circuits.

Nanoelectronic Circuit Design

Author: Niraj K. Jha,Deming Chen

This book is about large-scale electronic circuits design driven by nanotechnology, where nanotechnology is broadly defined as building circuits using nanoscale devices that are either implemented with nanomaterials (e.g., nanotubes or nanowires) or following an unconventional method (e.g., FinFET or III/V compound-based devices). These nanoscale devices have significant potential to revolutionize the fabrication and integration of electronic systems and scale beyond the perceived scaling limitations of traditional CMOS. While innovations in nanotechnology originate at the individual device level, realizing the true impact of electronic systems demands that these device-level capabilities be translated into system-level benefits. This is the first book to focus on nanoscale circuits and their design issues, bridging the existing gap between nanodevice research and nanosystem design.
