The module deals with structures of complex digital systems, with particular emphasys on monolithic integrated circuits.


Classification of digital system: partitition into subsystem classes.
Design criteria: hierarchy and modularity.
Scaling theory of VLSI CMOS circuits.
Interconnects: placement and routing problems.
Memory subsystems: ROM, PROM, EPROM, E2PROM, sRAM and dRAM.

Arithmetic processing subsystems: adders, carry propagation management.
Integer multipliers: serial and parallel approaches; Booth encoding. Integer dividers.
Floating point arithmetic (IEEE-754 standard ): floating point units organization.
I/O subsystems.
Control unit: organization and design.

Timing issues: clock skew, clock distribution and synchronization. Self-timed circuits.
