A practical approach to nano-CMOS circuit design and implementation
The fast pace of new technology and the challenges of nano-scaling are bringing together the once-separate disciplines of circuit design, technology device physics, and physical implementation. A good understanding of the underlying physical constraints of device, interconnect, and manufacturing is crucial for designing circuit systems and devices and making sound technology decisions.
Nano-CMOS Circuit and Physical Design integrates the nanometer process, device manufacturability, advanced circuit design, and related physical implementation into a single, seamless approach to advanced semiconductor technology. This comprehensive volume explores new developments in devices and processing; presents design issues, paying special attention to technology/design interactions such as signal integrity and interconnects; and addresses the impact of design for manufacturability and variability. Important topics include:
- Nano-CMOS process scaling issues and implications on design
- Subwavelength optical lithography
- Physics and theory of operation issues and solutions
- Design for manufacturability and variability
Written by expert practitioners, Nano-CMOS Circuit and Physical Design is a useful resource for IC designers and professionals in the field, providing them with practical design solutions and approaches.
