Last modified by Leon Luo on 2022/11/14 15:01

Overview

This course introduces students to the basic concepts required to design a basic integrated circuit using Cadence while understanding the technology that enables production, fabrication, and design of integrated circuit including the understanding of CMOS transistors physical behaviours through their standard models.

Concepts

These concepts are studied through course content, mainly lecture notes and course recommended textbooks. Please note, unless referenced from another source, please assume the following information presented is interpreted, studied, and re-expressed from the course content. Furthermore, please refer to the course content directly, e.g. ask the lecturer or read the textbook, for the most relevant knowledge required for the course.
