EE695KR Advanced VLSI Design

Course Description

This is an advanced VLSI course for graduate students. High performance and low-power design issues in modern and future processors will be discussed in detail. It is a follow-up course for EE559. The objective of this course is to introduce advance concepts in high-performance and low-power circuit and system design. Design process starting from logic synthesis down to layout synthesis will be covered in detail. At each level of design abstraction particular emphasis will be given on ultra high-performance and low-power considerations. Students are required to apply advanced techniques learnt in this course in their design project.

Academic Misconduct

Students caught engaging in an academically dishonest practice will receive a failing grade for the course. University policy on academic dishonesty will be followed strictly.
