bf1 standard cell family

non-inverting buffer
bf1 symbol
The buffers allow a large load to be driven with a small input capacitance. The selection includes a variety of stage efforts and P/N transistor ratios.
The buffers have an output P/N ratio of 2 except for the v1 version which uses a P/N ratio of 1.5. A P/N ratio of 2 offers good output skew, while 1.5 is close to the fastest speed.
The stage effort of the v0, v1 and v2 cells is designed to optimise speed with typical wireload values. The v4 version provides a minimum input capacitance. The inverters of the v5 version are the same size, so the delay is minimised at the expense of a higher input capacitance.
The v0 and v2 versions are similar, but use different P/N ratios on the first stage. The v2 cells use a first stage P/N ratio of 2. The v0 version tries to optimise the average delay by adjusting the first stage P/N ratio. The FO4 measure shows the delays relative to an iv1v2x2.
The v6 and v8 versions are experimental versions looking at the effect of layout and transistor size variations.
The v0 and v2 stage efforts are 1.3 for the x05; 1.5 for the x1; 1.8 x2; 2.1 x3, 2.3 x4, 2.6 x6, 2.8 x8 and 3.1 for the x12. The stage effort for the v5 buffers is 1.2.
