A sensor circuit that takes analog signals from the real world, quantifies them with an ADC, supports a crystal oscillator, includes a bandgap reference and a regulated power output, a temperature sensor, and a 2-wire logic interface to an external microcomputer (about 1K gates) may fit in an 8-pin SOIC package and have a die size of 2 mm2 or less.

The whole chip may only measure 5 mm on a side and cost only $3 to produce, but the masks cost over a million dollars and you may not be able to run the project from small batteries. 18 μ and above. ” As the devices become smaller, the specific conductance of the process increases, that is, the currentcarrying capability of devices on a given area of silicon increases. Considering that the supply voltage lowers with scaling, the impedance of signals on-chip decreases significantly, but the conductors that interconnect the devices have increased resistance due to their finer conductor size.

This can be so confusing that inefficient layouts can find their way into designs without the designer realizing it. By far, the most efficient (in terms of silicon used) layouts are done by hand, while the most efficient layouts (in terms of design time) are synthesized and autorouted. A logic synthesizer can take a simple function, say, a decoder that accepts a dozen bits and produces a few outputs that respond only on specific input combinations, and reduce the logic to an incomprehensible schematic that contains fewer gates and propagates faster than the same function that a designer would work out by hand.
