For the AMIS 0.5um technology, create an equivalent RC/Elmore SUE model using the Mosis parametric test results (amis05.txt from web site). This model should include the effective gate capacitance, source and drain parasitic junction capacitances and equivalent resistance for NMOS and PMOS,

L=0.5um as a function of W in um. Use this model to estimate the sizes of the transistors in the ring oscillator test for the standard and wide case from the given performance data.
