IL1203 Design of Digital Integrated Circuits - LSI 7.5 credits

Konstruktion av digitala integrerade kretsar - LSI

An overview of IC development and trends. A review of basic properties of MOS transistors relevant for digital logic design. CMOS layout and design rules.

Process parameters. Design specification. Floorplan. The CMOS inverter,

physical layout and electrical properties. Static CMOS. Logic gates.

Boolean functions and dual expressions. Synthesis of CMOS- logic.

Design of buffer drivers and interface logic. Design of elementary

sequential logic circuits. Dynamic CMOS circuits. Design for testability.

Laboratory work and a design project are intended to give the students

good knowledge of design and verification of CMOS logic circuits.

Important requirements to pass the course are homeworks, related to exercises

and laboratory work, and an IC design project.

A written design specification is compulsory to start the project design phase.

The circuit behaviour must be verified by simulation and documented together with a description of the logic function and layout of circuit leaf cells of the integrated circuit. Finally the project is presented for a teacher and some students of the course.
