Course Description

IC Photo 
  • Description: This course is designed to provide senior students with in-depth analysis and design capability required for state-of-the-art low-power and high-performance digital integrated circuits. Topics include the physics of operation and terminal I-V behavior of MOS devices, design of the basic CMOS inverter and logic gates, static and dynamic circuits, storage elements and memories, and interconnect and I/O circuits. The course includes an design project in which students will get an opportunity to use industry-standard CAD tools to design a digital integrated circuit from specifications to layout.
