This course provides the electrical & computer engineering student with the analytical and computer skills required for the analysis, computer simulation, design, and computer-aided physical layout of digital integrated circuits. ?e course is preparatory for study in the field of Very Large Scale Integrated (VLSI) digital circuits and engineering practice.
The objectives of the course are for the student to learn how to model, analyze, simulate, and design digital integrated circuits (CMOS and dynamic logic, for the most part) for engineering applications. By the end of the semester, students should have gained the following skills and/or understanding:
- Basics of (MOSFET) device operation and device physics
- How devices are used to create Boolean logic functions in both CMOS and dynamic logic
- How to build digital systems (e.g., sequential state machines like CPUs)
- How to address some of the issues that arise at high switching speeds
- How to use tools to build (full-custom, semi-custom, and fully synthesized) VLSI circuits and analyze them—tools including Cadence, SPICE, Verilog, and Synopsys
