Logic Design for Array-Based Circuits
Structured Design Methodology
Review of the Available Arrays
The arrays available at the time of a design evaluation need to be reviewed using the outline in Table 2-3 as an initial basis of comparison.
Table 2-3 Array Checklist - Initial Review
Figure 2-1 indicates the interdependencies between functional specification, hardware specification and the arrays.
Figure 2-1 The Array Selection Process
This review must compare what is available with the circuit specifications and produce a list of the available arrays that could be used to support those specifications. As the number of potential arrays is reduced, preliminary implementations of some of the critical paths for the circuit, constructed from the macro libraries under consideration, should be evaluated.
