EE-431 / 4 crédits

Enseignant: Burg Andreas Peter

Langue: Anglais


Summary

In this project-based course, students collect hands-on experience with designing full-custom digital VLSI circuits in dynamic logic. They learn to carry out the design and optimization on transistor level, including logic and clock tree, the verification, and the layout.

Content

Keywords

VLSI, CMOS, transistor level, layout, adder, dynamic logic
