You will need to enter your entire circuit into S-edit and perform a functional SPICE simulation to verify its
operation. You will then need to layout your entire circuit and successfully pass DRC &amp; LVS.
Hint 1: In prior homework assignments, you have created an inverter and a 3-input NAND gate. Consider finding a
minimized SOP expression for the truth table above and then use DeMorgan’s to manipulate the logic diagram into
one that only uses NAND gates and inverters. A 3-input NAND gate should be sufficient for all operations, although
you might have to tie an input to a DC level if you only need a 2-input NAND gate for some logic stages (i.e.,
DON’T GO BACK AND CREATE A 2-INPUT NAND GATE).
Hint 2: You have already laid out the Inverter and NAND gate. You should be able to bring those layouts into your
main layout and simply connect them.
Deliverables:
a)
Provide a schematic showing the logic diagram. I am looking for the gate level schematic of NAND gates
and Inverters. I don’t need to see the transistor level schematics for the gates.
(4 Points)
b) Provide a simulation waveform verifying your circuit behaves as intended. Again use 3 different pulse
voltage sources to generate all possible input codes (000-001-010….111).
(4 Points)
c)
Turn in a printout of your entire L-edit layout.
(4 Points)
d) Turn in a screenshot showing a successfully DRC.
(4 Points)
e)
Turn in a screenshot showing a successfully LVS.
(4 Points)
