Overview

This course is a hands-on introduction to ASIC design using Synopsys ASIC design tools flow. The attendees will be introduced to digital circuits timing for both combinational and sequential logic synthesis. They will be taught how to perform synthesis, evaluate time, floorplan, place 7 route, and chip finishing their ASIC design.
