Module content and teaching

Principal aims

The course aims to present, mainly though substantial practical experience, the design methodology of Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) and Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS).

Principal learning outcomes
  • Critique the main principles of ASICs, smart systems and devices
  • Design ASICS and MEMS through practical experience using typical modern Computer Aided Design software for this task
  • Understand emerging techniques in ASICs, MEMS and smart sensor systems.
  • Evaluate the principles and processes involved in the implementation of complex VLSI circuits and MEMS devices
