Calculate the minimum delay, in terms of 1:, to compute F=AB+CD using: (1) 2 input NAND gates and (2) a compound gate followed by an inverter.
In both cases, the input can present a maximum of 20C, where C is the capacitance associated
with a unit sized transistor. Assume a unit size pMOS has 2 times the effective resistance as a
unit size nMOS transistor. The output must drive a load equivalent to 100C. Draw the circuit and choose transistor sizes to achieve this delay. Which design is faster? Estimate the absolute delay
