ECSE334 – Introduction to Microelectronics 2 Khazaka - 2008 Integrated Circuits Design Constraints Key Design Goal: Reduce cost. Small chip area Small number of pins (terminals). Key Design Constraints: Large size of capacitor (no coupling and bypass capacitors) Large size of resistors (no bias resistors). Component variability N-channel devices offer better performance than p-channel devices.

ECSE334 – Introduction to Microelectronics 3 Khazaka - 2008 Integrated Circuits Design Characteristics Circuit topologies that use transistors only (minimize the use of passives). Circuit topologies that rely on the performance of n-channel devices rather than p-channel devices. Circuit topologies that rely on component matching and parameter ratios rather than absolute values. The use of feedback for stable reliable designs.
