2.1 Introduction

We will start our study of VLSI design by learning about transistors and wires and how they are fabricated. The basic properties of transistors are clearly important for logic design. Going beyond a minimally-functional logic circuit to a high-performance design requires the consideration of parasitic circuit elements—capacitance and resistance. Those parasitics are created as necessary ...
