Schematic capture to wafer fab

a WhitePubs® Book

If you design today - you may not have a good overview of all the pieces or why we did what we did then and you do what you do now. Good overview of the physical design issues as well as the logical design issues.

This book will show you how to approach the design covering everything from the circuit specification to the final design acceptance, including what support you can expect, sizing, timing analysis, power and packaging, various simulations, design verification, and design submission. FIVE STARS

The Bipolar designers faced tough design issues long before they cropped up in the CMOS world.

Book #10 in the Hot Cop Romance Series

An independent woman

    A disciplined cop

An undeniable attraction

The steamy romance that Fabio has been told not to read!

Draco Lanzoni offers a stranger sanctuary in a Nor'easter and then discovers she is the lifemate he has longed for. Until the storm stops, he cannot make her his.

But the blizzard is not the only threat.

The storm hides an enemy that is determined take both their lives.

Look what I found in a box in the garage ...

AMDASM Reference Manual (originally released in 1977)

From time to time I get questions about the AMD Am2900 technology. Looking for references. Asking about it. I have a lot of pieces of information on this site. The Bit-Slice Design textbook has been re-released in Canada (University class) and is coming to POD (print on demand). SInce it describes the design process for the Am2900 series, specifically the Am2910 and Am2901, and since many of the Am2900 parts exist as soft IP and have for years (meaning they are still built into today's designs - the part family that wouldn't die), I have received from time to time requests for anything on AMDASM - the meta-assembler from AMD used to write the microcode for the Am2900-based designs.

Well, in cleaning the office (I have stuff back to the 60s while trying to downsize) I stumbled over the reference manual. I re-typed it. Removed the blatant sexism (this was 1977 after all). And have it up. Unproofed (It was late at night) but I will get to that. Let me know if you spot anything. (email to the left) Click on the AMDASM cover to download the PDF file. Second book not available yet. (2017)


Already heard back to one of the students who had asked me about this recently.

AMDASM Manual Added for reference

Someone scanned and added Chapter 8 to the Am2900 Family Data Book (Collection of Ap Notes) - find it here. Also uploaded Chapter 9 in 2-page layout to accommodate the fold out artwork.

Documenting the Methodology for Repurposing an Instructor-Led Workshop for eLearning Delivery

ILT to eLearning Conversion Guide documents the actual conversion process (in PowerPoint Note format) used by an EDA firm. It is a quick look at all the bits and pieces to convert a technical training workshop, instructor-led, to a self-paced, full scale eLearning package supported by a third-party LCMS (Learning Content Management System).


Introduction to Bit-Slice Design: Controllers and Sequencers Being re-placed with distributor - needs reformatting

Advanced Logical Circuit Design Techniques NEW (co-authored with A. Svoboda), originally published by Garland STPM press.

This PDF is partially re-created - the rest scanned. It is a 21MB PDF file. Individual Chapters are below. Some are re-type - APL and all. Tricky on an iMac. Some have art re-drawn. Some are full scans. Book originally done with a typewriter on galley sheets with pasted up code samples, inked illustration.



Effective Presentations / Effective Training / Effective Workshops (in PowerPoint Note format) is a one-day seminar with self-study questions embedded that introduces and shows how adult learning theory can be incorporated into [technical] training presentations and workshops, and even presentations.

Effective Training


Did you know----

An estimated 109,500 people in the United States will be diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma this year. New cases of leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma account for 8.6 percent of the 1,268,000 new cancer cases diagnosed in the United States in 2001. The total estimated number of blood-related cancers has increased only slightly for each of the past three years. Every five minutes, someone in the United States learns that they have leukemia, lymphoma, or myeloma, more than 300 people a day.
