Abstract l.jpg

  • The circuit adds four 8-bit words, then latches to the output the 8 most significant bits of the 10-bit result.

  • We designed an 10-bit CLA adder, 2 sets of DFF latches, a divide by 4 frequency divider and a reset circuit. The operation frequency is 200 MHz, it uses 80mW of Power and occupies an area of 205x158mm2

Introduction l.jpg

In an ADC sometimes there is a need to average the output to simplify the circuitry after and lower power consumption.

A set of latches accumulates K inputs from the adder. The result of K inputs is then dumped into the output latches. At the same time the first set of latches are reset to zero to start the process over.

  • The word size for this circuit is 8-bit, after K add cycles only the 8 MSB bits are sent to the output so that the result is an average of the K inputs.

  • Our clock speed is 200 MHz, and the K value is 4.

Project summary l.jpg
Project Summary

  • DFFs were used for latching the outputs from the adder as well as the final output.

  • A circuit composed of a NAND gate and inverters is used to implement the reset function.

  • A CLA (Carry Look Ahead) adder is used for addition.

Project details l.jpg
Project Details

  • TSPC (True Single-Phase Clock) DFFs were used exclusively (text p.399) for the latches and frequency divider.

    • A CMOS pair was inserted to implement reset function

    • These are fast and only use 11 to 13 transistors

  • The reset circuit consists of a three input NAND gate, an inverter for the output, an inverter for the fs/2 input, and a double inverter to buffer the clock input.

    • The circuit outputs a high once every 4 clock cycles when all three inputs are high

    • The three inputs are system clock, fs/2 and fs/4

Project details8 l.jpg
Project Details

  • The add portion consists of two 4-bit and one 2-bit CLA adder chained together.

    • The first 4-bit is designed for carry out only, no carry in.

    • The second 4-bit has both carry in and carry out.

    • The carry out of the 2-bit adder is the tenth bit.

Cost analysis l.jpg
Cost Analysis

  • Estimate how much time you spent on each phase of the project

    • verifying logic 60hr.

    • verifying timing 20hr.

    • Layout 60hr.

    • post extracted timing 20hr.

Lessons learned l.jpg
Lessons Learned

  • The circuit worked at 200MHz in schematic but was slower in layout because of interconnection lengths. Better planning for layout could have helped maintain speed.

  • The size of this project may be too ambitious for a 166 class.

Summary l.jpg

  • This project was a good experience for learning circuit design with CAD tools as well as project planning and execution.
