- ... master the Cadence DFW II IC design system and a common manufacturing technology (CMOS, BiCMOS), and design-kit (mixed-mode, mixed-signal).
- ... explain common analog and mixed-signal-circuits and building blocks, their properties, and to properly choose for an application in a front-to-back design (physical validated cell/system layout).
- ... select suitable circuit topology (from lecture or from publications, e.g., accessable by IEEEexplore) and achieve a proper sizing of the circuit for the given manufacturing technology and the application specification.
- ... design a matched circuit/cell layout of the sized cirucit under area and power constraints.
- ... combine custom cells with cells from analog and/or digital cell libraries of the manufacturer or design group members to more complex designs.
- ... basically design chip core and pad frame in the context of a properly chosen chip package, and stream out the final validated design (GDS-II).
- ... realize independently a design project or a sub-project in the context of a larger group design (MPC on MPW), preferably with relation to ISE research in intelligent sensor systems and neural systems.
