6.1 Introduction

chips and their subsystems

Most chips are built from a collection of subsystems: adders, register files, state machines, etc. Of course, to do a good job of designing a chip, we must be able to properly design each of the major components. Studying individual subsystems is also a useful prelude to the study of complete chips because a single component is a focused design problem. When designing ...
