## Week 3 Full custom

5) Which of the following is not true for standard cell based design? 1 point
Week 4
i. The heights of the cells are fixed but the widths can be different.
Week 5 ii. Any number of cells can be placed in a row.
iii. The number of cells that can be placed in a row is fixed.
iv. It requires more design effort as compared to full custom design.

## ii. and iii.

ii. only
iii. and iv.
iii. only

6) Which of the following represents the correct ordering with respect to speed of circuits 1 point
(fastest to slowest)?

## Full custom, Gate array, Standard cell, FPGA

Full custom, Standard cell, FPGA, Gate array
Full custom, Gate array, FPGA, Standard cell
None of the above

7) Which of the following are true for structural design representation? 1 point

## The design is represented as a netlist of gates.

The design is represented as a netlist of functional level modules.
The input-output functional behavior will be specified.
The “assign” statement in Verilog can be used to specify the design.

## A test bench is required when we want to simulate a design.

When we map the design to an application specific integrated circuit, we do not need a
test bench.
When we map the design to a field programmable gate array, we need a test bench.
Simulation means generation of a gate level netlist from a behavioral specification.

## module guess (f, a, b, c);

input a,b,c;
output f;
wire t1, t2;
nand #1 G1 (t1,a,b);
or #1 G2 (t2,b,c);
and #1 G3 (f,t1,t2);
endmodule

## f = a’.b + a’.c + b’.c

f = a’.b + b’.c + c’.a
f = a.b + b.c + c.a
None of the above

## 10)What function do the following Verilog module implement? 1 point

module guess
https://onlinecourses.nptel.ac.in/noc17_cs21/unit?unit=6&assessment=14 (f, a, b, c); 2/3

module guess (f, a, b, c);
input a,b,c;
output f;
wire t;
assign t = (a & b) | c;
assign f = a ^ t;
endmodule

f = a’.c + a.b’.c’
f = a’.c + a’.b.c’
None of the above
