Therefore, it has a defect that switching speed becomes remarkably slow with a heavy output load, but there is a merit on the other hand that it can be implemented with a power supply voltage lower by a forward base-emitter bias Vf than the ECL gate since output logic signals are not biased thereby.
In the latch circuit of FIG. Ecl is used for very highspeed applications because of its price and power demands, while nmos logic is mainly used in vlsi circuits applications such as cpus and memory chips which fall outside of the scope of this article. MOS folded source-coupled logic. Since the fifth nMOS transistor 19 remains ON, gated by drains of the fourth and the sixth nMOS transistors 18, 20 charged to potential of the positive power supply GND, output signals of the latch circuit remain unchanged.
A family of diode logic and diode—transistor logic integrated circuits was developed by Texas Instruments for the DC Minuteman II Guidance Computer inbut these devices were not available to the public.
In a nMOS transistor of 0. Logic reference guide bipolar, bicmos, and cmos logic technology commitment, reliable logjc supply innovation, lowvoltage logic portfolio comprehensive, mature logic solutions. The steerinh diode—transistor logic family of integrated circuits was introduced by Signetics in Having no such phenomenon corresponding a sharp fall down of operating speed observed in a saturated bipolar transistor, MOS transistors can be designed with fairly small source-drain voltage.
With the anticipated growth of bicmos technology for highperformance asic design, the issue of testing takes on great significance.
Presentday building block logic gate ics are based on the ecl, ttl, cmos, and bicmos families. High level of the logic signal input to an ECL gate is determined by the forward base-emitter bias Vf of NPN transistors 75, 76 constituting preceding emitter followers, as mV for example. Toggle speed represents the lgoic speed at which a J-K flip flop could operate. As for the base-emitter capacitance C3, it affects little since the emitter potential follows the base potential after the first NPN transistor 69 is turned to ON.

Since the transistors of a standard TTL gate are saturated steeging, minority carrier storage time in each junction limits the switching speed of the device. Thus, a still smaller power supply voltage can be realized in the second embodiment than the first embodiment beforehand described, since there is nothing but a nMOS transistor between sources of a differential pair of nMOS transistors and the negative power supply VEE.
Still more, power supply voltage reduction is also difficult in ECL, gates because of necessity of sufficient collector-emitter voltage to avoid current lovic in addition to incompressibility of the forward base-emitter steerijg. Output current of the first current mirror is supplied as input current to the second current mirror and output current thereof is supplied to the coupled sources of the differential pair of the first and the second nMOS transistors 6 and 7 in the embodiment of FIG.
And in addition, product of the constant current source multiplied by the resistance of the first or the second resistor 3 or 4 in FIG. So, there is a problem that output amplitude fluctuates however accurately the constant voltage supply VCS is maintained.
The output potential alterations are implemented at high speed by the fourth and the fifth NPN transistors 75 and The master latch latches input complementary logic signals by a falling edge of the clock signal C as described in connection with FIG.
These values are equivalent to those of a NPN transistor materialized by a self-alignment process. The authors provide a new circuit technique for pipelined high fanin nfet trees. The equation 1 shows that the collector current I has a constant value determined by the voltage difference Vcs, the forward base-emitter bias Vf of the third NPN transistor 73 and the resistance R2 of the third resistor Since weve helped make parenting and teaching fun and rewarding.
In other words, no ECL gate predominant in its speed to sub-micron-processed CMOS gates is materialized by simple and low-cost processes as a bipolar process. So, a minimum necessary power supply voltage is given by a following equation 11 assuming the necessary voltage for the constant current source as 0.
In connection with the drawings, embodiments of the present invention will be described in the following paragraphs. Year of fee payment: Vlsi design, 2nd edition tseering free download fox ebook.
United States Patent The BiCMOS logic circuit recited in claim 2, characterized in that said load capacitance discharging means connected to an emitter of one of said pair of emitter followers consist of a nMOS transistor, a gate of said nMOS transistor connected to one of steeriing positive terminal of said power supply and an emitter of the other of said pair of emitter followers.
And by applying depletion type MOS transistors, the power supply voltage can be still reduced. First of all, the logic swing of the circuit is smaller than the supply voltage. In BiCMOS logic gates of the embodiment, circuit components, designed for a gate equipped with emitter followers on accordance with the condition annd, can be also used for a gate without emitter follower satisfying the condition.
That is to say, voltage gain of the BiCMOS logic gate as a differential amplifier should be not smaller than 1, namely, the input dynamic range should be smaller than the output dynamic range. As described heretofore, for a conventional ECL gate, of which operating speed greatly depends on incidental capacitances as well as the cutoff frequency fT of its NPN transistors, high cost processes as a base-emitter self-alignment process and a trench element separation process are indispensable.
University of connecticut bicmos best of both worlds.
Thus, OR logic of A and B is obtained from the second output terminal In the latch circuit of FIG. Thus, input complementary logic signals are latched by a falling edge of the clock signal C. The BiCMOS logic gate recited in one of claims 6 through 9, wherein each of said load elements and said resistor consists of a combination of reference resistors prepared via the same kind of fabrication process. From the equations 56 and 7a following equation is obtained.
