The chip design process using VLSI design styles in CMOS technology. Data path, control and register file design and layout. Clocking schemes, flip-flop and latch-based design. VHDL/Verilog design project using CAD tools. [3-0-2]
This is a course on the design of very large scale integrated circuits and systems implemented in CMOS technology. Key aspects of transistor operation, gate level design, IC design, fabrication, and layout of digital CMOS integrated will be covered. This is an exciting field that changes almost daily. Integrated circuits are used throughout Electrical Engineering, from cell-phones, consumer devices, signal processing systems, computers, and even biomedical devices. Understanding how these chips work and how they are designed is important to anyone planning a career in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
This course will be of interest to three types of students:
