ECE 224a -- Syllabus Forrest Brewer ECE 224a is a VLSI project lab in which students construct designs which are submitted to MOSIS and subsequently tested. The course is “advanced” in that at least 1 prior VLSI class is required, and 2 are prefereable. The onus is not in the teaching of tools, but in design construction within a practical flow. Topics: Layout/Fabrication Device Layout: contact, resistor, cap, transistor Cell Layout: std. cell constriants, abstraction, LEF/DEF, scaling Block Layout: Floorplanning and WirePlanning Clock and Power Layout
