Prof. Mor M. Peretz
Mr. Tom Urkin
The scope of the course covers both digital and analog design based standard or custom cells development.
The module is divided into two sections – frontal lectures and laboratory exercises.
The lectures part will focus mainly on architecture and design considerations while the lab aim on practical and implantation issues:
Layout fundamentals, both digital & analog analysis (passive components, variations, mismatches etc.).
Design levels: Logic, circuit and layout. Simple cells design. Digital implementation using standard cells.
Simulation and Design verification. Project- tiny chip design of Analog-to-Digital converter.
To provide students hands-on knowledge and experience for VLSI mixed-signal IC design. Furthermore, to develop the necessary framework and tools to analyze and design such systems.
Lecture: 1.0 Lab: 4.0 Total # of Points: 3.0
