Welcome to the VLSI Design class at Rice University - Fall 1996

Elec 442 at Rice is designed to impart to the students the theory and application of VLSI design. The course includes a design project, where students design original circuits based on the material learned in class. The chips will be fabricated by MOSIS, and tested in the next class in this series, Elec 423 (VLSI II).

Projects for Fall 1996:

The projects fall into one of two categories: Calculator/ALU, where functionality and performance is stressed, or a mini-CPU, where the building blocks and instruction set are simple, and the emphasis is on systems description and inter-operation of system components. The following is the list of projects from Fall 1996.



The topics covered in this course include:
