EE2L11 EPO-3: Design a Chip

Topics: Structural hierarchical design of a VLSI chip, implemented using Sea-of-Gates

During this project, students make a VLSI design with a group. The project is a continuation of the projects during the first year of the bachelor program Electrical Engineering, but focusses more on structural hierarchical design and on working together within a group. The students are divided into groups of about 7-10 persons and each group together designs a chip.

After finishing this course, the student is able to

  • make a design using global product specifications, including boundary conditions,
  • design in a systematic hierarchical way,
  • use analysis together with synthesis during the design process,
  • analyse his design at different levels of abstraction,
  • use different types of models during the design,
  • take into account testability,
  • perform the above design process within a group,
  • make a design as a part of a group design,
  • use modern computer tools during the design,
  • make documentation about the design.
