Konstruktion av en MMIC serie-till-parallellomvandlare på Gallium Arsenid. (Swedish)
A 5-bit MMIC serial to parallel converter has been designed in Gallium Arsenide. It is intended to be used together with a 5-bit True Time Delay (TTD) circuit, but it can easily be expanded into an arbitrary number of bits. The circuit has been designed with a logic style called DCFL and a 0.20 mm process (ED02AH) from OMMIC has been used to fabricate the circuit. The chip size of this 5-bit MMIC serial to parallel converter is 2.0x0.8 mm (including pads) and close to two hundred transistors are used. Due to the complexity of the transistor models the complete serial to parallel converter has not been fully simulated. However, the smaller building blocks like inverter, latch, etc. have been simulated successfully. These blocks were assembled into the complete circuit.
