Course Description:

 

This course aims at providing the under-graduate electronic engineering students an introduction to integrated circuits, IC fabrication process, VLSI circuits and systems and their design. The main focus of this course is the study of basic electrical properties of CMOS, design of basic digital building blocks using MOS transistors, modeling of interconnecting wires and clocking techniques. The course also addresses the optimization of designs with respect to a number of metrics: cost, reliability, performance, and power dissipation. The course objective is to provide the student with a solid understanding of the underlying mechanism and solution techniques to the above design issues, so that the student, when working as industrial designer, is capable of identifying the key problems and focus his attention to resolve them. The students will learn to use Cadence ASIC Design Suite during the course.

 

Course Outcomes/Objectives:

 

By the end of the course the students will be able to

         Describe VLSI systems and list specific examples.

         Analyze the operation of CMOS inverter characterize its performance.

         Analyze the operation of various CMOS based logic functions.

         Design and simulate transistor based digital circuits.

         Create layouts for fabrication of ASICs.

         Analyze and design various types of memories.

         Use Cadence software to simulate and design ASICs
