Study of VLSI circuit design including PMOS and NMOS transistor analysis, switch and gate logic design, understanding of semiconductor fabrication processes and design rules, CAD system, speed and power considerations, scaling of transistors to the nano-scale, and designing with highly variable process parameters. Each student will design a VLSI chip, simulate the design and submit a GDS II file for Chip fabrication.
This course provides a VLSI circuit design methodology including PMOS and NMOS transistor analysis, switch and gate logic design, used of ASIC design CAD tools. After completing the course, the student will be able to: explain the concept of CMOS VLSI design techniques and semiconductor fabrication processes; modeling and simulation of transistor / gate logic using Cadence tools; design medium size VLSI chips for implementation on the MOSIS chip; design CMOS combinational logic, sequential logic circuit, and dynamic two-phase flip-flop.
