Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs)

  • Martin Rieger
Chapter

Abstract

The abbreviation ASIC stands for Application Specific Integrated Circuits. Compared with standard circuits an ASIC is designed and manufactured according to specifications resulting from its application. The ASIC user is able to specify the circuit function at design level and/or by means of configuration options. If the function of an IC is only controlled by software then it is not called an ASIC [16.7].
