DESIGN AUTOMATION OF HIGH SPEED DIGITAL SIGNAL

PROCESSING IN VLSI WITH APPLICATIONS IN SPEECH


PROCESSING AND RECOGNITION SYSTEM

ABSTRACT

The rapidly growing complexity and increasing performance of integrated circuit
technology has inspired the work on high performance CMOS circuit design, presented in this
thesis. Predicting the future of IC technology, the SIA Roadmap, which was presented two years
ago by the Silicon Industry Association, is presently proving to be on the conservative side.
Dealing with large and complex designs, and at the same time designing circuits for high
performance applications is a major challenge. As an example of demanding digital signal
processing, the area of automatic speech recognition is utilized as a driving application
throughout the text of this dissertation. Speaker independent speech recognition tasks with large
vocabulary are at focus. In this work, design methodologies as well as cell libraries for utilization
of the dynamic single phase clocking techniques TSPC (True Single Phase Clocking circuit).
