Ever since I subscribed to the SI-List a year or so ago,
I've seen quite a few postings regarding books (and other
publications) on signal integrity. Nearly all of these
books have concentrated on transmission lines, board
design, EMC, on-chip VLSI issues, and such.
However, I spend a significant portion of my time designing,
tuning, modifying, etc. various forms of input/output cells.
I learned the basics of CMOS I/O design a while back, but
I have much to learn, and I've been trying to find a dedicated,
comprehensive study on I/O cell design.
What I'd like to see included is:
* I/O families (rough specs and basic designs)
* full swing CMOS
* single ended and differential versions
* FET and bipoloar implementations
* controlled (or lack there of) output impedance
* on-chip termination (for receivers)
* input, output, bidirectional, high-Z, etc
* voltage level translators (e.g., 3.3V I/O to 2.5 V core)
* edge rate control
Is there such a beast?
