Overview

With the exponential growth of Electronics and its deployment in almost all aspects of our life (portable devices, medical devices, security, communication, transportation, space, ...) it is important for Engineers working with these devices to understand and comprehend the basic principle of digital Electronics 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.


Who should attend

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.
