Course Description

This course aims to convey a knowledge of advanced concepts of circuit design for digital LSI and VLSI components in state of the art MOS, Bipolar or BiCMOS technologies (as well as some specialized technologies such as GaAs and Superconduction). Emphasys is on the circuit design and layout of either very high speed, high density or low power circuits for use in applications such as micro-processors, signal processors or memories. Special attention will devoted to the most important challenges facing digital circuit designers today and in the coming decade, being deep submicron effects, signal integrity, power consumption and timing.
