Discover How to Design, Build, and Optimize Customized Mixed-Signal Integrated Circuits for a Wide Variety of Uses Both inspirational and practical, ASIC Design in the Silicon Sandbox offers electronics engineers a hands-on guide to mixed-signal circuits and layouts. The book provides a detailed roadmap for designing and building custom circuits that are optimized for target devices, providing enhanced functionality and lowered cost in finished products. Written by circuit design expert Keith Elliott Barr, this complete resource covers everything from design and optimization methods to standard cell layouts to packaging and testing. Readers will find easy-to-apply information on peripheral circuits; specialty logic structures and memory; logic, binary mathematics, and processing; converters and switched-capacitor techniques; and much more. Filled with hundreds of helpful illustrations, ASIC Design in the Silicon Sandbox features: A wealth of full-color standard cell layouts Multiple approaches to amplifier, oscillator, bandgap, and other analog functions Down-to-earth information on integrated circuit fabrication costs Real-world advice on designing and optimizing custom integrated circuits Practical examples of how to think through new design concepts Step-by-step guidance on entering the fabless semiconductor industry Inside This Cutting-Edge IC Design Reference ac The Sandbox ac Fabs and Processes ac Economics ac Design Tools ac Standard Cell Design ac Peripheral Circuits ac Specialty Logic Structures and Memory ac Logic, Binary Mathematics, and Processing ac Analog Circuits: Amplifiers ac The Bandgap Reference ac Oscillators, Phase Locked Loops, and RF ac Converts and Switched-Capacitor Techniques ac Packaging and Testing ac Odds and EndsHis point was that the only way to win is to fab on the smallest geometry process possible, and as quickly as possible. ...
