CS 181 ab. VLSI Design Laboratory. 12 units (3-6-3); first, second.
Digital integrated systems design, with projects involving the design, verification, and testing of high-complexity CMOS microcircuits. First-term lecture and homework topics emphasize disciplined design, and include CMOS logic, layout, and timing; computer-aided design and analysis tools; and electrical and performance considerations. Each student is required in the first term to complete individually the design, layout, and verification of a moderately complex integrated circuit. Advanced topics second term include self-timed design, computer architecture, and other topics that vary year by year. Projects are large-scale designs done by teams.
