Digital IC Design Introduction

Introduction:

This course is an introduction to VLSI digital design. The material will focus on bottom up design of digital integrated circuits, starting from CMOS transistor properties and manufacturing technology to CMOS inverters, combinational and sequential logic designs and more complex digital blocks. Important design aspect of digital integrated circuits such as propagation delay, noise margins and power dissipation will be covered in the class, as well as design challenges in submicron technology will be addressed. The students will design combinational and sequential
