ECE 413: Intro VLSI Design
Prerequisite: ECE 311
General Education requirement: Natural Science Technology
Introduction to design of Very Large Scale Integrated Circuits (VLSI), taught at the transistor level. Computer tools are used to create and simulate integrated circuit layouts. Levels of design automation covered include Full Custom layout, Schematic Driven layout, Standard Cells and fully automated synthesis of HDL code. Students are required to complete a project that can be submitted for fabrication.
