Analysis and Design of Digital Integrated Circuits: Course Description

This OpenCourseWare from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology looks at optimizing digital building blocks from the device and circuit level. The class emphasizes integrated circuit design using the CAD tools MAGIC for circuit layout and IRSIM and HSPICE for simulations. You will learn about topics such as circuit design styles for logic, arithmetic and sequential blocks; estimating and minimizing energy consumption; timing issues and active clock distribution techniques and testing of integrated circuits. MIT Professor Anantha Chandrakasan, who is also a co-author of the textbook, teaches this free course. The class is appropriate for graduate students in electrical engineering and computer science.

This OpenCourseWare about digital integrated circuits includes a free online course textbook, problem sets and their solutions, guidelines for the class design project, quizzes, and documentation on the CAD tools used in the course.
