Digital VLSI Circuit Design

Fundamentals
  • Logic Styles (NMOS, CMOS, Bipolar, Pseudo-NMOS, Dynamic CMOS, Transmission
Gate, Pass Transistor logic etc.)
Implementation Technologies (Full-Custom design and Semi-Custom design including
  • ASIC (MPGA and SBIC), FPLD (CPLD and FPGA) etc.)
  • Boolean Logic
  • Logic Minimization
 Practical Aspects
  • Combinational Logic Design: Adders, Multipliers, Multiplexers, ALUs etc.
  • Sequential Logic Design: Registers, Register Files, Counters, Shift Registers, Finite State
          Machines (FSM) etc.
  • Memory Design: RAM (SRAM, DRAM), ROM (PROM. EPROM, EEPROM, Flash) etc.
  • Electronic Design Automation (EDA), Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Aided
  • Engineering (CAE) tools
  • System-level, Architecture-level, Register Transfer (RT) Level design.  
  • High-Level or Behavioral Synthesis/Architecture Description Language (ADL/)Systemon-
    Chip (SOC) Design/Analog and Mixed-Signal (Digital + Analog) Design .
  • Computer Architecture (Architecture Level)
  • VHDL (or Verilog) Modeling and Synthesis (RT-Level)
  • Microprocessor (System-Level)
  • Clock Generators and Clock Buffers
  • Clock Synchronizers, Clock Managers, Clock Tree Insertion
  • Test Synthesis, Fault Analysis, Scan-chain
  • Speed (Delay)
  • Power Consumption
  • Cost
  • Reliability
  • Logic-Level (Gate-Level), Circuit-Level (Transistor-Level) and Physical Design
    (Mask/Silicon-Level) Design/Layout Synthesis
