Course: ECE 546. Very Large Scale Integrated Circuit Design (3)
Prerequisite: ECE 442. Survey of VLSI technology and very large scale integrated systems. Problems that occur when ordinary circuits are replicated to involve millions of devices. CMOS technology, design styles up to the point of submission for fabrication. Computerized methods with high-density circuits with optimized speed and power consumption. Students perform simple layouts and simulations suitable for extension to a very large scale.
