|Students will learn how to design VLSI circuits and systems based on a standard VLSI system design flow, where various electronic design automation (EDA) tools will be used extensively in the semester. Those EDA tools includes analog and digital circuits and systems. The main purpose of this course includes the following: 1. VLSI Introduction. 2. Manufacturing Process. 3. MOSFET Devices. 4. MOSFET Wires. 5. Hspice Software. 6. Hspice Simulation. 7. Analog IC Layout and Practice. 8. Verilog-HDL. 9. Synthesis. 10. Design for Testability and Automatic Test Pattern Generation. 11. Static Timing Analysis. 12. Placement and Routing. 13. Design Rule Check, Layout Versus Schematic. 14. Layout Parasitic Extraction and Simulation. 15. Design Verification. 16. Project Presentation.
