EE M216A Fall 2010 Design of VLSI Circuits and Systems Prof Dejan Markovi Prof. Dejan Markovi ć University of California, Los Angeles, USA Email: ee216a@gmail.com Course Description ± This course focuses on advanced concepts of VLSI circuit and system design in state of the art CMOS technologies. ± Topics include Topics include: Circuit level optimization using gate size, supply and threshold voltage; layout of circuit blocks optimized for speed, power, or area. Advanced concepts of retiming, place and route will be employed in class projects, in addition to the design of custom blocks. The applications include micro processors, signal and multimedia processors, portable devices, memory and periphery. Course topics are continuously updated to track unique technological D. Markovic / Slide 2 Course topics are continuously updated to track unique technological features such as power leakage, interconnect, clock and power distribution, impact of device variability on the design. This quarter, special focus will be given to design optimization and scaling . EEM216A .:. Fall 2010 Lecture 1: Introduction | 2
