ECE 124A, Fall 2011, Hw#1 Prof. Kaustav Banerjee 1/3 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SANTA BARBARA Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering ECE124A VLSI Principles Homework #1 Due Date: 09/30/2011 Friday by 5:00pm Problem 1 Write one page of review for the article listed below. The article can be found i n the “Lecture Notes and Reference” section of the course webpage . G. E. Moore, “Cramming more components onto integrated circuits,” in Electronics, 38(8):114 -- 117, April 1965. Also answer the following questions based on the paper: (A) Why is integrated electronics better than “conventional” electronics? (B) According to G. Moore, integration will not change linear systems as radically as digital systems. Explain. (C) Search the We b for transistor counts of Intel and AMD’s more recent microprocessors. Make a graph of transistor count vs. year of introduction from their Processors in 1990 to the present on a semilog scale. How many months pass between doubling of transistor counts? Problem 2 (A) F BC AD AB CD . Calculate F (B) Implement the boolean expression ) )( )( ( GH CF E D B A X in a CMOS gate (C) Design a pass-transistor network that implements Y A BC BD Problem 3 Make use of a Karnaugh Map to simplify: D B A ABC d D C B A D B A C B A Y And Implement the boolean expression in two NOR gates.
