Re: Differnce between a net & wire

Net is used for logical connectivity in the netlist. Wire refers to a physical segment. Apart from that I don't see any difference.

Re: Virtual Ground

In electronics, a virtual ground (or virtual earth) is a node of a circuit that is maintained at a steady reference potential, without being connected directly to the reference potential. In some cases the reference potential is considered to be that of the surface of the earth, and the reference no...

Re: Preparation for PhD in IIT's

For low power design " Low Power Methodology Manual: For System-on-Chip Design " by Alan Gibbons, David Flynn is a excellent book. If you are currently a Synopsys customer, you may download an electronic (PDF) copy of the Low Power Methodology Manual (LPMM) at no cost. https://www.synopsys.com/Commu...

Re: Zener breakdown and avalanche breakdown

In Zener breakdown the electrostatic attraction between the negative electrons and a large positive voltage is so great that it pulls electrons out of their covalent bonds and away from their parent atoms. i.e. Electrons are transferred from the valence to the conduction band. In this situation the ...

Re: Which transistor has higher gain. BJT or MOS and why?

BJT have more gain than MOSFET because MOSFET shows Quadratic I-V characteristics and BJT shows Exponential I-V characteristics and the change in exponential behavior is more as compared to Quadratic behavior. In mathematical terms: The Intrinsic Gain in BJT = Va/Vt where Va is Early Voltage. It is ...

Re: Difference between Dual core and Core2 Duo processors

Dual Core Vs Core 2 Duo, both are dual core processors. Dual core is simply a generic term referring to any processor package with two independent execution cores in one physical package. The Core 2 Duo is Intel's second generation of dual-core (hence, Core 2) processor made for desktops and laptops...

Re: Asynchronous vs synchronous reset

Synchronous reset logic: will synthesize to smaller flip-flops, particularly if the reset is gated with the logic generating the d-input. But in such a case, the combinational logic gate count grows, so the overall gate count savings may not be that significant. The clock works as a filter for smal...

Re: Crosstalk effect & its impact on timing

Crosstalk is phenomenon in which switching on a signal net effects switching activity of a nearby net due to capacitive coupling between two nets. Due to process-technology scaling, the spacing between adjacent interconnect wires keeps shrinking, which leads to an increase in the amount of coupling...
