Name: EECS 141: Final exam, 19th Dec. '96 2 Problem 1. For each of the following statements, indicate where it is true or false. (18 points) (T / F) 1(a) The speed of a ring oscillator can continuously be improved by increasing the W/L ratio of the inverters. 1(b) Decreasing supply voltage helps to alleviate the velocity-saturation problem. 1(c) The load capacitance of a static CMOS gate has no effect on its VTC. 1(d) A φ n-block dynamic gate will not have any charge sharing problems if only 0 1 transitions occur at its inputs during evaluation. 1(e) The transistors in a Manchester carry chain should be sized progressively larger from the input to output to reduce the propagation delay. 1(f) Low-swing buses save power and reduce propagation delay at the same time. 1(g) The delay of a static inverter is minimized if (W/L) p /(W/L) n is equal to μ n / μ p . 1(h) Silicided poly lines reduce the delay of a wire by decreasing the capacitance. 1(i) The maximum propagation delay between two latches determines if a race con- dition will occur due to clock skew.
