Advanced Simulation and Test Methodologies for VLSI Design

Buy

With the advent of LSI and subsequently VLSI, technology has never witnessed such an unprecedented growth in the use of electronic systems in a wide range of applications. Although the ability to integrate several hundreds of thousands of transistors into a monolithic integrated circuit offers many advantages, a major concern in the design of these complex devices has been the ability to verify and in some instances guarantee their fault free operation. The testing of digital circuits has been problematic since time immemorial; however with the introduction of VLSI the problems have been aggravated by several factors in addition to those associated with the increase in complexity and reduction in the pin to gate ratio.

• Market trends have encouraged the prolific use of VLSI in many applications ranging from consumer products to critical commercial controllers, consequently reliability is of paramount importance.

• The increased requirement for ASICs, has necessitated the development of more sophisticated CAD tools. However, the greatest advances have been in layout and simulation with little improvement in area of test. Consequently, inexperienced designers can now produce extremely complex but untestable chips.

• Again, with the introduction of ASICs the high costs of testing cannot be amortized over a large number of components since ASICs are inherently low volume products.

• Traditionally the design and test of a circuit were considered as two distinct phases in the development of an electronic system. Designers must now be educated that in order to pnxluce testable VLSI circuits testing must be considered as an integral part of the design process.

Hence the objectives of this text are. first, to emphasize that testing is an integral part of the design process and must not be considered as an after- thought. Secondly, it summarizes the new developments in simulation, test and design for testability about which a vast amount of research work has been produced and which is disseminated over a large number of technical journals.

Personality Disorder: Temperament or Trauma? An Account of an Emancipatory Research Study Carried Out by Service Users Diagnosed with Perso (Forensic Focus)

Personality Disorder (PD) is one of the most difficult psychological conditions to classify and treat and in the past literature on the subject has tended to neglect the invaluable viewpoint of sufferers themselves. Drawing on extensive research carried out in conjunction with service users, Heather Castillo seeks to adjust this imbalance and...
