Digital Integrated Circuits and Systems

Subject description

Technology implementation of complex digital integrated circuits and systems: standard cells, gate arrays, FPGA devices.

CMOS inverter: design, implementation, transfer function, noise margins, delay, power consumption.

Design of combinational circuits CMOS in different target technologies.

Design of sequential circuits CMOS in different target technologies.

Design of arithmetic logic blocks: adders, multipliers, shift registers.

Design and implementation of memory circuits SRAM, DDRAM, SDRAM and others.

Design and implementation of microprocessor system in ASIC technology.

The subject is taught in programs

Objectives and competences

Solid knowledge of digital integrated circuits and systems. Gained knowledge forms the firm basis for designing integrated circuits from the transistor-level description up to the high-level description in hardware description language

Teaching and learning methods

Lectures and tutorials.

Expected study results

After successful completion of the course, students should be able to:

  • calculate sensitivity and noise margin of digital circuit,
  • describe operation of complex digital integrated circuits and systems in highlevel description language,
  • realize all design steps for implementation in selected target technology,
  • testing of realized integrated circuit.
