goals

The basics of layout design of integrated circuits are learned and applied in practice. For this purpose, the understanding of the design flow as well as the creation of more complex layout-designs is given in a current CMOS technology using a professional IC design software.

content

Firstly, the basics of the standard CMOS process are explained. Layer definitions and design rules are derived from the CMOS process to determine the layout design. Based on that, basic circuits are created and simulated. With the help of these circuits the full design flow is practiced to create a chip layout. This includes methods for the validation like DRC, Antenna Check, LVS, extraction of parasitic elements and the back simulation of the circuit.
