An introductory course in digital VLSI design in which students design digital CMOS integrated circuits and systems. The class covers transistor, behavioral, and physical level design using a variety of design tools, including circuit simulation with SPICE, logic synthesis with Verilog HDL, physical layout and automated placement and routing. The class culminates in a final project in which each student designs a more complicated digital system from architecture to final layout. Prerequisite(s): A course in digital design.
