  • On yield-optimizing design rules

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):7 - 12
    Cited by:  Papers (2)

    Integrated circuit design rules represent a trade-off between the probability that a given die will yield and the physical size of that die. Optimum design rules maximize the average number of good dice on a wafer. The authors present a methodology for calculating design rules that are optimum in this sense. The development involves four points: (1) any design rule can be represented physically by... View full abstract»

  • Ion-exchanged integrated waveguide structures

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):13 - 16
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (4333 KB)

    The authors describe an ion-exchange approach for producing waveguides that are circular, with a diameter of 50 μm for multimode fibers and from 5 μm to 10 μm for single-mode fibers. Such waveguides will permit high coupling efficiencies in both directions between the optical fibres and the waveguides. To avoid difficulties with diffusion masks, silver thin-film ion sources we...

  • A method for the automatic translation of algorithms from a high-level language into self-timed integrated circuits

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):17 - 19
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (708 KB)

    A method for generating custom self-timed integrated circuits (ICs) from an algorithmic description of the behavior of the described circuit is described. The goal is to quickly produce prototype integrated circuit masks that implement various algorithms and datatypes in order to evaluate the IC power, delay, and area characteristics. The behavior of the circuits is described in a functional subse... View full abstract»

  • Active filter design using operational transconductance amplifiers: A tutorial

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):20 - 32
    Cited by:  Papers (237)  |  Patents (6)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (25760 KB)

    Basic properties of the operational transconductance amplifier (OTA) are discussed. Applications of the OTA in voltage-controlled amplifiers, filters, and impedances are presented. A versatile family of voltage-controlled filter sections suitable for systematic design requirements is described. The total number of components used in these circuits is small, and the design equations and voltage-con... View full abstract»

  • Efficient method for computing noise in a general purpose CAD program in APL

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):33 - 38
    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    An efficient technique is implemented in a general-purpose CAD (computer-aided design) program to compute noise in electric circuits. In this method, a preordered, sparsely stored circuit matrix is transposed in an easy but subtle manner. As a consequence, one frequency-domain (AC) analysis is needed to compute noise at an output regardless of the number of noise sources. Unlike other programs tha... View full abstract»

  • A MIMD organization for the execution of interconnection routing algorithms

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):39 - 44
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (10873 KB)

    It is demonstrated that the routing problem is partitionable into smaller subproblems which can be handled in parallel, and that a MIMD (multiple-instruction multiple data stream) processor array can perform interconnection routing in a cost-effective manner. One possible organization is presented as an example for further research. Using the suggested organization allows for partitioning a routin... View full abstract»
