With the exponential growth of electronics and its deployment in almost all aspects of our life (portable devices, medical devices, security, communication, transportation, space, etc.), it is important for engineers working with these devices to understand and comprehend the basic principle of digital electronic circuits.
The goal of this course is to give the student a good understanding of how CMOS-based digital system is designed. The emphasis will be on the circuit design aspect of the system.
Attendees will understand the following topics:
Students, researchers, and industry personnel who would like to learn about the hardware that runs all our devices focusing on digital circuit design (VLSI). Background in basic circuit design and analysis, digital logic, and computer architecture will be helpful.
CMOS Technology and Basic Device Structure
Combinational Circuits (Transistor Level Design)
Sequential Circuittatic Latch
Power, Performance, Area (PPA) Tradeoffs
Emerging Technology: Beyond CMOS (RRAM, In-memory Computing)
Note: This is a 5-day course. Three full days will be allotted for theoretical discussion and another two full days for the practical hands-on part.
