Course: ECE 527. Application Specific Integrated Circuit Development (3)
Prerequisites: ECE 526/L. Corequisites: ECE 527L. Study of the tools and techniques used to develop application specific integrated circuits, including mask programmed devices and field programmable circuits. Topics include synthesis methodologies, performance tradeoffs and constraints. Asynchronous interfacing is covered in detail for both single bit and bus interfaces. A non-theoretical introduction to test and testability also is included.
