CSIT 613 VLSI Design

The course focuses on the design of CMOS VLSI (Very Large Scale Integrated) chips using integrated circuit cells as building blocks and employing hierarchical design methods. Focus will be on the design of digital systems. Design issues at layout, schematic, logic and RTL levels will be studied. Shareware and freely available design software will be used for laboratory exercises. An overview of VLSI computer-aided design (CAD) tools and theoretical concepts in VLSI architectures will also be discussed. Prerequisite: Completed at least one course in logic design or computer architecture at the undergraduate level.
