Goal

The aim of this course is to provide an introduction to the design and layout of Very Large Scale Integrated (VLSI) circuits for complex digital systems. It covers custom design, cell-based hierarchical design, and algorithmic aspects of VLSI CAD tools. With a focus on CMOS technology, students generate layouts of CMOS chips on engineering workstations in an associated laboratory. By the end of the course, students will have designed, laid out, and verified a 4-bit microprocessor modeled after the Am2901 from Advanced Micro Devices.
