ECE 108 / ESENER ASSIGNMENT I WINTER 2011 MOS INVERTERS Scope: This assignment deals with design and analysis of various MOS inverters. You will design these inverters to satisfy certain requirements on the inverter characteristics (e.g., transfer characteristics, and noise margins, and power dissipation) and compare them to the characteristics obtained by SPICE simulation. In any digital system, the transfer characteristic Vo/Vi must be highly nonlinear. The nonlinearity is required in order that logic levels remain well defined. A typical inverter transfer characteristic is sketched below. There will be an equilibrium point, V inv , where V o = V in . If one were to define V < V inv as false and V > V inv as true, then this device would function as a logical inverter. The nonlinearity of the characteristic ensures that, as signals pass through a cascade of gates, they move farther away from V inv . This tendency for logic levels to "regenerate" if
