ECE 5746 - Applied Digital ASIC Design


     
Fall. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Enrollment limited to: Cornell Tech students. Offered in New York City at Cornell Tech.

Staff.

This course provides a hands-on experience in digital very-large scale integration (VLSI) design using state-of-the-art computer aided design (CAD) tools. The students will learn how to implement an algorithm of their choice (written in Python or MATLAB) as an application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) using hardware description language on register transfer level. The course does not require any prerequisites as the students will be guided through the entire design flow and learn the necessary skills while working on their ASIC designs. At the end of the semester, the students will send their ASIC designs in a 500nm or 180nm CMOS process to fabrication through the MOSIS Educational Program. In a follow-up lab course (1 credit), the fabricated ASIC will be tested and, if applicable, integrated into a larger system.
