This paper discusses Pl.A designs in three MOS technologies: NMOS, CMOS/SOS and CMOS-Bulk. The purpose of this paper is not to introduce a new and exciting PLA design, nor is it to recommend one fabrication technology over another. Its purpose is to use PLAs as a standard, hopefully familiar layout strategy so that new designers can get a better understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of all three technologies from a designer's viewpoint. It is hoped that this paper will provide more data to those who must select a technology for their integrated circuit fabrication.
