Integrated circuit design

Objectives

At the end of this module, the student will have understood and be able to explain :
 - MOS transistor characteristics
- performance of analog and digital CMOS circuits (consumption, efficiency, signal-to-noise ratio, operating frequency...)
- The different types of simulation to characterize analog and digital circuit performance
- Design and optimisation of advanced integrated systems
- Co-design of complex SW/HW systems
The student will be able to:
Specify an advanced electronic system including digital, analog, RF circuits and interfaces
- Set up a design methodology (computer-aided design) to respond to a specification
- Design full-custom CMOS circuit-blocks (IP blocks) for SoC.
- Simulate CMOS circuit performance with professional tools (Cadence)

Form of assessment

The evaluation of outcome prior learning is made as a continuous training during the semester. According ot the teaching, the assessment will be different: as a written exam, an oral exam, a record, a written report, peers review...
