CMOS Digital Integrated Circuits 6 CMOS Dynamic Analysis Delay-Time Calculation (First Order Estimates) The simplest approach of calculating the propagation delay is based on estimating the average capacitance current during charge down/up. where

CMOS Digital Integrated Circuits 7 CMOS Dynamic Analysis Delay-Time Calculation (More Accurate)(1/4) The propagation delay can be found more accurately by solving the state equation of the output node. The current flowing through C load is a function V out as τ PHL : PMOS is off. The equivalent circuit during high-to-low output transition is V in nMOS i D,n C load V out V in V out iCiC i D,p i D,n

CMOS Digital Integrated Circuits 8 CMOS Dynamic Analysis Delay-Time Calculation (2/4) The nMOS operates in two regions, saturation and linear, during the interval of τ PHL. Saturation Region i D,n =(k n /2)(V in -V T,n ) 2 =(k n /2)(V OH -V T,n ) 2 »Plug i D,n into C load dV out /dt=-i D,n, and integrate both sides, we get t 1 ’ -t 0 = 2C load V T,n /[k n (V OH -V T,n ) 2 ] V OH =V DD V 50% V OH -V T,n V out t t0t0 t1t1 nMOS in saturation nMOS in linear region t1’t1’

CMOS Digital Integrated Circuits 16 CMOS Inverter Design Device Sizing (4/5) Therefore, τ PHL and τ PLH are The ratio between the channel widths W n and W p is usually dictated by other design constraints such as noise margins and the logic inversion threshold. Let’s this transistor aspect ratio be defined as R ≡ W p /W n. Then, the propagation delay can be represented as

CMOS Digital Integrated Circuits 17 CMOS Inverter Design Device Sizing (5/5) As we continue increase the values of W n and W p, the propagation delay will asymptotically approach a limit value for lager W n and W p, The propagation delay times cannot be reduced beyond the above limits, and the limit is independent of the extrinsic capacitances.
