TOPICS

Design, layout, and simulation of CMOS integrated circuits using computer-aided design tools such as Cadence or Electric VLSI.

COURSE OUTCOMES

After completing EE 421 students will be able to:

1.

2.

setup and use computer-aided design (CAD) tools (1.9, 1.10, 1.11) [1,2] identify and explain the various layers used in the design and fabrication of integrated circuits (1.4, 1.7) [1,2]

3.

design, layout, and simulate digital integrated circuits including logic gates and special function circuits such as digital-to-analog converters (1.8, 1.9, 1.10, 1.11,

1.12) [1,2]

4.

5.

create a verified layout for submission for fabrication (1.8, 1.9, 1.10, 1.11) [1,2] understand the limitations of an integrated circuit and methods for testing (1.4,

1.7, 1.8, 1.9, 1.10, 1.11, 1.12) [1,2]

COMPUTER USAGE

Students use either commercial design tools such as Cadence or Mentor or free tools such as Electric VLSI along with simulation software such as SPICE or Spectre and verification tools
