1 ECE 3150 Homework 1 Due 1/30/2009 before class in the drop box 1. (Simple definition of signals) Briefly (in 1 to 3 sentences) explain the following: (a) Describe the Moore’s law in terms of transistor counts, smallest feature and cost per bit. (4 pts) (b) What is the basic difference in transient values between digital and analog representation when v(t) or i(t) is used in microelectronics? (4 pts) (c) What is the difference in the ambient noise effect between digital and analog signals? (4 pts) (d) A transistor on a 65nm CMOS technology usually drives a capacitance of 100fF. Assume we have a hundred million transistors with V DD = 1V and the system clock is 1GHz. What is the dynamic power consumption? What is the factor that we did not consider here? (4 pts) (e) For the realistic voltage transfer curve of Fig. 1.13, describe how voltage gain affects the input signal range without output saturation. (4 pts) 2. (Large signals and small signals) For the output and transfer characteristics below,
