Synopsis:

This course covers advanced VLSI design and test techniques for low power circuits. Topics covered include aspects of the design of low voltage and low power circuits including process technology, device modeling, CMOS circuit design, memory circuits and subsystem design. Course also covers aspects of testing and reliability of low power circuits and systems. Various types of defects observed in practical designs will be discussed. Focus will be also on on- and off-chip techniques for defect detection, failure analysis and diagnosis. This will be a research- oriented course based on team projects.
