Low-Power Digital VLSI Design: Circuits and Systems addresses both process techlogies 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, techlogy 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.
