ECE 5515

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2021-2022.

Course is equal parts analytical and real-world practical design. Analytical topics include basic transistor physics, switching behavior of transistors, interconnect modelling, combinational and sequential logic, memories, timing analysis, optimization, computer arithmetic, and architecture transforms. Practical topics include routing strategies, floor planning and other application/specification-driven decision-making considerations for the multi-variate CMOS digital design space. Emphasis will be on full-custom design using Cadence.

When Offered Fall.
