ECE 55900 - MOS VLSI DesignLecture Hours: 3 Credits: 3
CMPE Special Content Elective
Normally Offered: Each Fall
ECE 305 and 43700
An introduction to most aspects of large-scale MOS integrated circuit design including: device fabrication and modeling; inverter characteristics; designing CMOS combinational and sequential circuits; designing arithmetic building blocks and memory structures; interconnect and timing issues; testing and verification; and system design considerations. Term projects involve the complete design of a functional logic block or system using CAD tools.
