Conceptual Design of Multichip Modules and Systems treats activities which take place at the conceptual and specification level of the design of complex multichip systems. These activities include the formalization of design knowledge (information modeling), tradeoff analysis, partitioning, and decision process capture. All of these functions occur prior to the traditional CAD activities of synthesis and physical design.
Far from being the passive containers for semiconductor devices of the past, the packages in today's high performance computers pose numerous challenges in interconnecting, powering, cooling and protecting devices. While semiconductor circuit performance measured in picoseconds continues to improve, computer performance is expected to be in nanoseconds for the rest of this century -a factor of 1000 difference between on-chip and off-chip performance which is attributable to losses associated with the package. Thus the package, which interconnects all the chips to form a particular function such as a central processor, is likely to set the limits on how far computers can evolve. Multichip packaging, which can relax these limits and also improve the reliability and cost at the systems level, is expected to be the basis of all advanced computers in the future. In addition, since this technology allows chips to be spaced more closely, in less space and with less weight, it has the added advantage of being useful in portable consumer electronics as well as in medical, aerospace, automotive and telecommunications products. The multichip technologies with which these applications can be addressed are many. They range from ceramics to polymer-metal thin films to printed wiring boards for interconnections; flip chip, TAB or wire bond for chip-to-substrate connections; and air or water cooling for the removal of heat.
Conceptual Design of Multichip Modules and Systems treats activities which take place at the conceptual and specification level of the design of complex multichip systems. These activities include the formalization of design knowledge (information modeling), tradeoff analysis, partitioning, and decision process capture. All of these functions occur prior to the traditional CAD activities of synthesis and physical design. Inherent in the design of electronic modules are tradeoffs which must be understood before feasible technology, material, process, and partitioning choices can be selected. The lack of a complete set of technology information is an especially serious problem in the packaging and interconnect field since the number of technologies, process, and materials is substantial and selecting optimums is arduous and non-trivial if one truly wants a balance in cost and performance. Numerous tradeoff and design decisions have to be made intelligently and quickly at the beginning of the design cycle before physical design work begins. These critical decisions, made within the first 10% of the total design cycle, ultimately define up to 80% of the final product cost. Conceptual Design of Multichip Modules and Systems lays the groundwork for concurrent estimation level analysis including size, routing, electrical performance, thermal performance, cost, reliability, manufacturability, and testing. It will be useful both as a reference for system designers and as a text for those wishing to gain a perspective on the nature of packaging and interconnect design, concurrent engineering, computer-aided design, and system synthesis.
PEAK PERFORMANCE is specially packaged as a Seminar Material for the Exam Success Orientation Campaign. It is a response to the heart-cry of members of our societies regarding the abysmal poor performance of the various categories of students in their examinations across the various academic institutions and examining bodies. Inability of students to adequately prepare for their examinations is what has birthed the hydra-headed monster, called examination malpractice, that has become the bane of our once progressive society. Today, many of our students who would have become valuable assets to our societies have embraced the negative spirit which makes them see themselves as never-do-well. Consequently, they have been erroneously made to believe that they can never prepare for and pass their examinations on their own (i.e. without any illegal aid). It is the need to arrest this devilish spirit, that has prompted my packaging of this special Exam Success Pack, that is designed to re-orientate the student to believe that he is capable of preparing for and passing any examination, and indeed scoring A's in all his courses/subjects, without any illegal aid. The package (which comes with an audio CD) is to serve as a tool in the Exam Success Orientation Campaign that I am embarking upon to drive home the message of self-belief among students in our various academic institutions. This package and the campaign should be seen as my modest contribution to the task of rescuing our ailing society from total collapse and re-building and restoring it to the enviable society that it should be. For the various reasons aforementioned, the pocket book, which I self-published locally earlier, has been revised to include a look at the broad divisions of the language skills. And I have concentrated on the receptive skills, with the aim of helping students get the best from their lecturers/ teachers and their reading materials. I am convinced that all the techniques for efficient listening and effective reading that I have examined in this edition will enable students receive proper guidance from their lecturers/teachers, especially as they engage in the process of listening to their lectures and reading their books/study materials. Consequently, I have included sections on Key Concepts and Application. The Audio CD that accompanies this Exam Success Pack is a seminar I delivered at the Exam Success Summit organized by the Youth Forum of the Living Faith Church (Winners Chapel), Choba, Port Harcourt, Nigeria, in May 2012. It is indeed an oral presentation of some portions of this book and my first self-development book, A TO Z OF SUCCESS SECRETS. It is my sincere desire that students of all categories will have access to this special package and thoroughly consume and digest the contents in order to deal with the demons called fear, inferiority complex, examination malpractice and failure. It is also my utmost desire that students will go beyond just passing their examinations to scoring straight A's in their courses/subjects after reading through this book and listening to the accompanying CD.
