Design of Integrated Digital Circuits

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Blume

The course deals with the design of digital circuits in CMOS technology. Alternative circuit techniques for the realization of basic circuits are presented and explained. Various forms of implementation of integrated circuits are discussed. Design techniques with hardware description languages ​​are presented on a basis of various examples. Current aspects of large scale integrated circuits in modern semiconductor technologies such as leakage currents, etc. are presented. The analysis of the temporal behavior of circuits is carried out based on run-time models.

Recommended: Knowledge according to the lectures Fundamentals of Digital SystemsLogic Design of Digital Systems and Digital Electronic Circuits
