The Inverter
10106081030300 The InverterThe inverter is probably the most important basic logic cell in circuit design. This chapter introduces the logical concepts of the inverter, its layout implementation, the link between the transistor size, and the static and analog characteristics. The manual design of the inverter is detailed. The performances of the inverter are analyzed in terms of static transfer function, switching speed, MOS options influence, and power consumption.
Logic Symbol Two logic symbols are often used to represent the inverter: the "old style" inverter (left of
