Module Objective

The course goal is t students to acquire expertise in methodology, design and construction of modern analog and digital circuits very large integration (VLSI).


Module Study Targets

Students should be able to:

  • Acknowledge VLSI Design Methodologies
  • Acknowledge Design Methodologies Standard Cell Design, Full custom Design, ASIC
  • They design modern analog and digital circuits very high integration
  • Implement full-custom layout
  • Support Circuit simulation with SPICE
  • They create many Grade Amplifiers
  • They design systems (D / A, A / D, Filters, Modulators, Multipliers, u)
  • Choose structured methodology to the design of very large systems
  • They plan Subsystems CMOS, RAM data memory, ROM


Module Acquired Abilities

  • Search, analysis and combination of data
  • Able to work independent
