What is this class all about? Introduction to digital integrated circuit design engineering Will describe models and key concepts needed to be a good digital IC designer Models allow us to reason about circuit behavior Allow analysis and optimization of the circuit’s performance, power, cost, etc. Understanding circuit behavior is key to making sure it will actually work Teach you how to make sure your circuit works Do you want your transistor to be the one that screws up a 1 billion transistor chip?
