The original form of this book was published by Academic Press, 1250 Sixth Avenue, San Diego, California 92101-4311 in 1992. ISBN 0-12-746660-6. The figures were reproduced with the permission of Applied Micro Circuit Corporation. The Q20000 Series and other bopolar and BiCMOS series referenced belong to AMCC. EPAC is a trademark of IMP, Inc.
The original form of this book was based on classes taught at USCD and at AMCC's customer Design Center and focused on the AMCC ASIC arrays (the Q20000 Bipolar and Q24000 BiCMOS array series) as specific examples of a general structured design methodology.
Customer training courses prepared by high-technology vendors are a required extension to that training available in the engineering classes at the college level. The quality of that training can vary with the experience of the instructor. The experience of the instructor with the nuances of the products is one facet. The teaching expertise is another.
The purpose behind the original form of this book was to document what a proven instructor was adding to the course material and manuals. By providing this supplement, it would be possible for other, less experienced instructors, to take over the actual presentation of the seminars while ensuring no loss of insight into the methodology or product taught.
The edited material will be uploaded as text first and then interwoven with additional sites and pages. This is an on-going evaluation of the Internet as a teaching tool.
