Restrictive design rules (RDRs) have been introduced as a simplified layout optimization method to better enable resolution enhancement techniques in ultra-deep submicron designs (16). In this paper, we study the technology migration problem for designs with strong RET-driven layout restrictions, i.e., RDR constraints, which require devices (gates) to be(More)
SPAM (Simulation Platform for Animating Motion) is a simulation software system designed to address synchronization issues pertaining to both animation and simulation. SPAM provides application programs with the manipulation, con guration, and synchronization tools needed when simulations are combined to create animations. It is designed to be used as the(More)
VLSI technology continues to develop at a staggering rate presenting two challenges to computer designers: (i) how to capitalize on the additional resources that are available on a chip; and (ii) how to evolve computer architecture models that are well matched to the signi cantly changed physical parameters of new technology and the expanding needs of(More)
The Cached DRAM (CDRAM) is a synchronous memory device that can deliver I/O bandwidth and performance necessary for today's high-speed computer systems. Independent address and control circuitry for the integrated DRAM and SRAM give the CDRAM the same flexibility as an L2 caching system with much lower cost and power usage. An internal 128 bit data bus(More)
