Make: FPGAs: Turning Software into Hardware with Eight Fun by David Romano

By David Romano

What for those who may possibly use software program to layout undefined? not only any hardware--imagine specifying the habit of a fancy parallel laptop, sending it to a chip, and having it run on that chip--all with none production? With Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), you could layout this sort of computer together with your mouse and keyboard. in the event you install it to the FPGA, it instantly takes at the habit that you simply outlined. are looking to create whatever that behaves like a exhibit driving force built-in circuit? How a couple of CPU with an guideline set you dreamed up? Or your personal Bitcoin miner you are able to do all this with FPGAs.

Because you are not writing programs--rather, you are designing a chip whose sole goal is to do what you inform it--it's speedier than something you are able to do in code. With Make: FPGAs, you are going to methods to holiday down difficulties into anything that may be solved on an FPGA, layout the good judgment that might run in your FPGA, and hook up digital elements to create comprehensive projects.

Latchup by Steven H. Voldman

By Steven H. Voldman

Curiosity in latchup is being renewed with the evolution of complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) know-how, metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET) scaling, and high-level system-on-chip (SOC) integration.

Clear methodologies that furnish safeguard from latchup, with perception into the physics, expertise and circuit matters concerned, are in expanding demand.

This ebook describes CMOS and BiCMOS semiconductor expertise and their sensitivity to offer day latchup phenomena, from simple over-voltage and over-current stipulations, unmarried occasion latchup (SEL) and cable discharge occasions (CDE), to latchup domino phenomena. It includes chapters concentrating on bipolar physics, latchup conception, latchup and protect ring characterization constructions, characterization trying out, product point attempt structures, product point trying out and experimental effects. Discussions on state of the art semiconductor strategies, layout structure, and circuit point and method point latchup strategies also are incorporated, besides as:

  • latchup semiconductor approach strategies for either CMOS to BiCMOS, akin to shallow trench, deep trench, retrograde wells, connecting implants, sub-collectors, heavily-doped buried layers,  and buried grids – from unmarried- to triple-well CMOS; 
  • practical latchup layout tools, automatic and bench-level latchup checking out equipment and strategies, latchup conception of logarithm resistance area, generalized alpha  (a) house, beta (b) house, new latchup layout tools– connecting the theoretical to the sensible research, and;

Negative Differential Resistance and Instabilities in 2-D by B. K. Ridley (auth.), N. Balkan, B. K. Ridley, A. J. Vickers

By B. K. Ridley (auth.), N. Balkan, B. K. Ridley, A. J. Vickers (eds.)

Instabilities linked to scorching electrons in semiconductors were investigated from the start of transistor physics within the 194Os. The learn of NDR and influence ionization in bulk fabric resulted in units just like the Gunn diode and the avalanche-photo-diode. In layered semiconductors area formation in HEMTs may end up in extra gate leakage and to extra noise. The reports of scorching electron delivery parallel to the layers in heterostructures, unmarried and a number of, have proven plentiful facts of electric instability and there was no scarcity of feedback touching on novel NDR mechanisms, comparable to actual house move, scattering caused NDR, inter-sub band move, percolation results and so forth. genuine area move has been exploited in negative-resistance PETs (NERFETs) and within the charge-injection transistor (CHINT) and in gentle emitting common sense units, yet some distance too little is understood and understood approximately different NDR mechanisms with which quantum good fabric seems to be relatively well-endowed, for those to be equally exploited. the purpose of this publication is accordingly to collate what's identified and what's no longer recognized approximately NDR instabilities, and to spot promising techniques and strategies for you to raise our realizing of the foundation of those instabilities that have been saw over the last decade of investigations into high-field longitudinal delivery in layered semiconductors. The booklet covers the basic houses of sizzling provider shipping and the linked instabilities and lightweight emission in 2-dimensional semiconductors facing either concept and experiment.
