The lab covers the following topics:

  • Introduction to the VLSI-CMOS-design environment
    • Design of typical CMOS basic circuits (NAND gates)
    • Logical verification
    • Circuit simulation to determine the critical time and power loss
  • Automated implementation of a microprocessor logic
    • Implementation of optimized basic cells (e.g. full adders)
    • Generation of complex circuit components by automated placement and wiring of the basic cells
  • Introduction to basic cells - design flow
