Integrated Circuits

Integrated Circuits

IC or Chip

Various gates are interconnected to form a circuit

14 to 64 pins for a typical IC

 

Levels of Integration

Small Scale Integration (SSI)

Less than 10 gates

Medium Scale Integration (MSI)

10 to 100 gates, adders, multiplexers

Large Scale Integration (LSI)

100 to few thousands of gates, processors

Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI)

Thousands of gates, complex computer Chips, memory arrays

Digital Logic Families

TTL (Transistor – Transistor Logic)

Widespread and this is the standard

Bipolar

ECL (Emitter Coupled Logic )

For high speed operation

Bipolar

MOS (Metal Oxide Semiconductors)

High component density

Unipolar

CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductors)

Useful where Low power consumption is needed

unipolar

 

Characteristics of digital logic families

Fan in

Number of inputs of an electronic gate

Physical logic gates with large fan in are slower compared to less fan in

image

The NAND gates have a fan in factor of 4

Fan out

Specifies the number of standard loads that the output of a gate can drive without impairing its normal operation.

Propagation Delay

Average transition delay time for the signal to propagate from input to output

image

A full adder has an overall gate delay of 3 logic gates from the inputs A and B to the carry output Cout shown in red

Power dissipation

Power consumed by the gate

Noise Margin

Minimum external noise voltage that causes an undesirable change in the circuit output

A full adder has an overall gate delay of 3 logic gates from the inputs A and B to the carry output Cout shown in red

Installing ns-3.34 in Ubuntu 20.04

This post shows how to install ns 3.34 in Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Prerequisites: Fresh installation of Ubuntu Version 20.04 LTS  ns3.34 can be downloaded from here Follow the video link for complete step by step instructions on the installation.  This version fixes the compilation issues of vanet-routing-compare.cc (bug in ns3.33)  Issue the following commands after opening a terminal  $ sudo apt update $ sudo apt install g++ python3 python3-dev python-dev pkg-config sqlite3 python3-setuptools git qt5-default gir1.2-goocanvas-2.0 python3-gi python3-gi-cairo python3-pygraphviz gir1.2-gtk-3.0 ipython3 openmpi-bin openmpi-common openmpi-doc libopenmpi-dev autoconf cvs bzr unrar openmpi-bin openmpi-common openmpi-doc libopenmpi-dev tcpdump wireshark libxml2 libxml2-dev Unzip or untar the ns-allinone-3.34.tar.bz2 in the home folder (in my case its /home/pradeepkumar) $ cd ns-allinone-3.34/ $ ./build.py --enable-examples --enable-tests  Once the installation is completed, you may get an output show

Installation of ns3 in Windows 10 and Windows 11 OS using WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux)

This post shows how to install ns-3.33 in Windows 10 through WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) This posts works for Windows 11 also (I have tested it on a Windows 11 ISO and it works the Same way as mentioned in the following post.) This post will work for ns-3.3x version. Prerequisites : Install Windows Subsystem for Linux with GUI: Please refer the following video  System Information: OS used: Windows 10 and WSL (Ubuntu 20.04) GUI: XServer for Windows NS3 Version: ns-3.33 See the following complete video on how to install ns3 in Windows 10 Step 0 : Open XLaunch Step 1 :  Open WSL using PowerShell and open it as Administrator Command:/  wsl $ xfce4-session The GUI of Ubuntu Opens within Windows 10 OS. Step 2 : Download ns3 from nsnam.org website through Mozilla Firefox browser Step 3: Open a Terminal  $ sudo apt update $ sudo apt install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev python3-pygraphviz cvs mercurial bzr git cmake p7zip-full python3-matplotlib python-tk python3-dev qt5-q

Installing NS-3.32 in Ubuntu 20.04

This is about installing ns version 3.32 in Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. #ns3 #ns3 .32 #networksimulation The commands used in the video are given here. $] sudo apt update $] sudo apt install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev python3-pygraphviz cvs mercurial bzr git cmake p7zip-full python3-matplotlib python-tk python3-dev qt5-qmake qt5-default gnuplot-x11 wireshark Download the ns-allinone-3.32.tar.bz2 package from nsnam.org and copy it to /home/ folder See the full video for detailed instructions Extract it either in GUI or using command $] tar jxvf ns-allinone-3.32.tar.bz2 $] cd ns-allinone-3.32/ $] ./build.py --enable-examples --enable-tests The above command will take some time to install all the packages  You can see the output as shown below ns3 To check whether ns3 installed successfully, use the following commands. $] cd ns-3.32/ $] ./waf --run hello-simulator You should get the output as Hello Simulator $] ./waf --run first This is the example from the ns-3.32/exa
