Design Automation of VLSI Systems

This course is designed to introduce students with Physical Design Automation (DA) of VLSI systems. DA related issues for the current state of the art will familiarize students with existing techniques in VLSI design. Data structures and algorithms related to DA will provide insight into design of CAD tools. Students will understand the relationships between DA algorithms and various constraints posed by VLSI fabrication and design technology. Critical performance related parameters and their importance in DA tools will be introduced. The material will be presented in technology independent style and will prepare students for design and development of DA tools. One of the key goals is to prepare students for research in physical design automation of VLSI systems.
