Chapter 10: Digital Integrated System Building Blocks

By Ken Martin

From Digital Integrated Circuit Design

This chapter describes a number of digital integrated system building block s. It is not intended to be all encompassing; rather, it is intended to give the reader exposure to a number of different circuits and methodologies. Some of the circuits described include multiplexors, decoders, barrel shifters, counters, adders, subtractors, multipliers, and programmable logic arrays .

10.1 Multiplexors and Decoders

A multiplexor is a circuit that mak es the output equal to one of a number of possible data inputs as determined by address inputs. An example of a multiplexor was seen previously in Fig. 5.5 of Chapter 5, where n -channel transmission gates were used to realize an 8-to-1 multiplexor. Alternatively, this could be realized using CMOS transmission gates. Another alternative example of a multiplexor is shown in Fig. 10.1. This structure is somewhat similar to the transmission-gate multiplexor, except now the tree is only used to pull internal nodes low and a pseudo-NMOS load is used to pull internal nodes high. Alternatively, the pseudoNMOS load could be replaced by a dynamic load. The multiplexor also has an output inverter that also serves the purpose as a buffer. If all the n -channel transistors in the inverted-tree network are tak en as 10 ?m wide, then a reasonable width for the pseudo-NMOS load might be 5 ?m. This assumes all lengths are equal and tak en as the minimum allowed.

Logic Decoders and Demultiplexers
Logic decoders and logic demultiplexers move data between inputs and outputs. In the case of digital decoders, the coded information is translated into familiar or uncoded formats, while digital multiplexers transmit data from one input through to several output lines.
