1 MICROSYSTEMS LABORATORY DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICAL & COMPUTER ENGINEERING Microelectronic Hysteresis Robert W. Newcomb Talk for FICAMC: Plovdiv August, 16, 2008 (Fifth International Conference of Applied Mathematics and Computing – Bulgaria’2008)

2 The Old Town of Plovdiv by Ivan Theofilov Your ancient floors float among the stars. Blue donkeys graze the silence around. The Roman road leads down along matrimonial chandeliers. A cry out of woman's flesh calls in the clock. Violet-colored philistines go to bed in the deep houses, they hear the pig, the hens, the train, the mouse. The darkness dawns with quick sensual pupils. The bridal veil flies away with the chimney's breath. Blue donkeys run on the moonlit roofs. Saints take off in a cloud from whitewashed churches, with blood-soaked lambs they welcome the bridal veil. Leopards gaze with amber eyes from the doorsteps. Among box trees bacchantes with satin bands pour fragrant myrrh out of bronze rhytons... Ivan Theofilov was born in Plovdiv in 1931 and graduated from the Theatre Academy in Sofia. He is an honorary citizen of Plovdiv. The poem translated here is from Geometry of the Spirit, published by Free Poetic Society, Sofia, 1996, and translated by Zdravka Mihaylova 2

3 Main topic of talk The mathematics for the design of VLSI CMOS circuits for hysteresis controlled by a voltage or current. Possible uses: Chaotic circuits, robust oscillators, memory, debouncing, pixel holding, emulation of chemical reactions, artificial neural networks, buildings in earth quakes Items for discussion: Microlectronic hysteresis concept The main idea, curve with movable load line Representation via semistate equations Key circuits used Some examples 3

4 The concept for microelectronics Hysteresis (ancient Greek = to lag behind) a)Static: piecewise multi/single valued [reason Spice won't run DC analysis on hysteresis] along with b) Dynamic: single valued given initial conditions Typical (static): binary bent 4
