2.11 Bibliography
The topics of this
chapter are covered in more detail in Weste and Eshraghian [1993]. The simulator
SPICE was developed at UC Berkeley and now has many commercial derivatives
including Meta Software's HSPICE and Microsim's PSpice. Mead [1989] gives
a description of MOS transistor operation in the subthreshold region of
operation. Muller and Kamins provide an introduction to device physics [1977
and 1986]. Sze [1988]; Chang and Sze [1996]; and Campbell [1996] cover process
technology in detail at an advanced level. Rabaey [1996] describes fullcustom
CMOS datapath circuit design, Chandrakasan and Brodersen [1995] describe
lowpower datapath design. Books by Brodersen [1992] and Gajski [1988] cover
silicon compilers. Mukherjee [1986] covers CMOS process and fabrication
issues at an introductory level. Texts on analog ASIC design include Haskard
and May [1988], and Trontelj [1989]. J. Y. Chen [1990] and Uyemura [1992]
provide an analysis of combinational and sequential logic design. The book
by Diaz [1995] contains hard to find material on I/O cell design for ESD
protection. The patent literature is the only source for often proprietary
highspeed and quiet I/O design. Wakerly [1994] and Katz [1994] are basic
references for CMOS logic design (including sequential logic and binary
arithmetic) though they emphasize PLDs rather than ASICs. Advanced material
on computer arithmetic can be found in books by Hwang [1979]; Waser and
Flynn [1982]; Cavanagh [1984]; and C. H. Chen [1992].
A large number of papers on
digital arithmetic were published in the 1960s. In ASIC design we work at
the architectural level and not at the transistor level and so this early
work is useful. Many of these early papers appeared in the
IRE Transactions on Computers that changed to
IRE Transactions on Electronic Computers (ISSN 03677508, 196367)
and then to the IEEE Transactions on Computers
(ISSN 00189340, 1967). A series of important papers on multipliers appeared
in Alta Frequenza (ISSN 00026557, 193289;
ISSN 11201908, 1989) [Dadda, 1965; Dadda and Ferrari, 1968]. Copies of
these papers may be obtained through interlibrary loans (in the United States
from Texas A&M library, for example). The two volumes by Swartzlander
[1990] contain reprints of some of these articles. Ranganathan [1993] contains
reprints of more recent articles. Papers on CMOS logic and arithmetic may
be found in the reports of the following conferences:
Proceedings of the Symposium on Computer Arithmetic (QA76.9.C62.S95a,
ISSN 10636889), IEEE International Conference on
Computer Design (TK7888.4.I35a, ISSN 10636404), and the
IEEE International SolidState Circuits Conference (TK7870.I58; ISSN
00748587, 196068; ISSN 01936530, 1969). Papers on arithmetic and algorithms
that are more theoretical in nature can be found in the
Journal of the Association of Computing Machinery . Online ACM journal
