In a full-custom layout, different blocks of a circuit can be placed at any location on a silicon wafer as long as all the blocks are non-overlapping. On the other hand, in semi-custom layout, some parts of a circuit are predesigned and placed on some specific place on the silicon wafer. Selection of layout styles depends on many factors including type of chip, cost, and time-to-market. Full-custom layout is a preferred style for mass produced chips since the time required to produce a highly optimized layout can be justified.
As the voltage on the gate increases, the conductivity of the transistor decreases. The combination of pMOS and nMOS transistors can be used in building structures which dissipate power only while switching. This type of structure is called CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor). 5. CMOS technology is widely used in current VLSI systems. CMOS is an inherently low power circuit technology with the capability of providing a lower power-delay product comparable in design rule to nMOS and pMOS technologies.
The advantage of gate arrays is that the steps involved for creating any prefabricated wafer are the same and only the last few steps in the fabrication process actually depend on the application for which the design will be used. Hence gate arrays are cheaper and easier to produce than full-custom or standard cell. Similar to standard cell design, gate array is also a non-hierarchical structure. The gate array architecture is the most restricted form of layout. This also means that it is the simplest for algorithms to work with.
