The goal of this research project was to design a VLSI implementation of the required digital circuitry to utilize ferroelectric memory as a portion of main microprocessor memory. An interface between National Semiconductors NM24CF04, a nonvolatile, serial-access, ferroelectric memory device, and Intels 8086 microprocessor was designed and implemented using SSIMSI technology in a previous study. This thesis discusses the redesign of the previously designed circuit for VLSI implementation. The layout was accomplished using the Magic graphical layout editor and tested using the Esim event driven logic-level simulator. Ferroelectric memory, FERRAM, NM24CF04, Nonvolatile memory, VLSI.
