Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

This course provides a hands-on experience in digital very-large scale integration (VLSI) design using state-of-the-art computer aided design (CAD) tools. The students will learn how to implement an algorithm of their choice (written in Python or MATLAB) as an application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) using hardware description language on register transfer level. The course does not require any prerequisites as the students will be guided through the entire design flow and learn the necessary skills while working on their ASIC designs. At the end of the semester, the students will send their ASIC designs in a 500nm or 180nm CMOS process to fabrication through the MOSIS Educational Program. In a follow-up lab course (1 credit), the fabricated ASIC will be tested and, if applicable, integrated into a larger system.

When Offered Fall.
