Binary Counter (8-bit)

Binary Counter (8-bit)

This is an example which demonstrates the application of the LOGITHERM module of SISSSI. We have designed a simple, 8-bit binary counter. In order to increase the event density, thus the dissipation density we connected an inverter-chain of 20 inverters and further 20 two-input AND gates to each output bit of the counter. The final circuit contained altogether 343 standard cells and the necessary number if I/O pads. The counter was driven by a tex2html_wrap_inline956 clock and the tex2html_wrap_inline860 simulation window was tex2html_wrap_inline960 The execution time of one logi-thermal simulation cycle on a SUN Sparc 20 workstation was 34.5 sec. During this time Verilog has executed 146180 events (state transitions) and this execution time also includes a steady-state THERMANAL run. Fig.... Show More

This site is very informative on the binary counter.
