Welcome to the VLSI Design I class at Rice University - Fall 1999

Elec 422 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).
