ECE 4140. VLSI Design and Simulation. 3 Credits.

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. Prerequisites: ECE 3130, ECE 3135. Same as ECE 6240. (Fall).
