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 technologies.
Emphasys is on the circuit design, optimization, and layout of either very
high speed, high density or low power circuits for use in applications
such as micro-processors, signal and multimedia processors, memory and
periphery. Special attention will devoted to the most important challenges
facing digital circuit designers today and in the coming decade, being
the mpact of scaling, deep submicron effects, interconnect, signal integrity,
power distribution and consumption, and timing.
This semester, special attention will be given to the following
topics: circuitry for digital RF, memory design, and impact of interconnect.
This will reflected in both the lectures and the preferred projects.
