Top-down ASIC/FPGA design methodology; modeling of VLSI circuits using HDL; behavioral, structural, and RTL modeling techniques; logic synthesis techniques; design verification plan and techniques. Students design and verify a final project using state of the art commercial VLSI CAD tools for ASIC and FPGA (Altera).
This course provides a top-down ASIC/FPGA design methodology including HDL modeling, simulation, and implementation. After completing the course, the student will be able to: model and simulate of digital system using hardware description language (HDL), synthesis of digital controller/system from register-transfer to higher level descriptions in HDL, explain the concept of static timing analysis, design for test, clock tree insertion, design verification, and floor planning issues, describe different methodologies in ASIC and FPGA design flows, design and implement the design concept and target to ASIC and FGPA board (Altera), debug and analysis a system with an on-board logic analyzer, and explain the advance insertion-based, gain-based and random-base design HDL flow.
