EEL 5322 W.R.Eisenstadt - 1 - VLSI Class Notes: Fall 2010, Class 1 Welcome to VLSI Circuits and Technology Class Reading this Week: Jaegar Chap. 1.2, 1.3.1 and Rabaey Chap. 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, Class handout below Today s Lecture discussion . 1) a) Review syllabus, please read this completely and use it as a guide to study with the course lectures. Computer resources, TA, etc. VISTA. b) Discuss why learn VLSI at University of Florida? c) What are your expectations? d) What are my expectations? e) What are industry expectations for new designers? f) Goals of instruction: To train VLSI digital circuit designers for deep submicron technologies with large IC manufacturing process variations. g) Use VLSI technology to explain VLSI circuit varations h) Used design rules to allow circuit layout and manufacturing from digital simulaition k) Key reasons to understand technology, hit performance specifications, and make IC yield and money. READ THESE NOTES AS HOMEWORK 2) Major topics of the course: a) Basic IC technology steps for constructing CMOS on wafer. This includes statistical variations of process. Why learn this? Process selection and design for yield in a process is a designer s responsibility. Not a favorite set of topics but essential for good mixed-signal and RF designers. b) IC design rules for converting technology limitations to computer CAD layout. How do we handle manufacturing variations and push the limits of design? How, do we design

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
