Design of VLSI Systems



The bottom-up design methodology is based on (mainly) manual construction of circuit building blocks at the transistor and mask-layout level, all of which are subsequently merged together to form the complete design hierarchy. Due to its flexibility at lower level design issues such as transistor size optimization and parasitics minimization, the bottom-up methodology is better suited for the design of very dense, high-performance digital modules as well as analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits.
