EECS 105 - Prof. Spanos
Microelectronic Devices and Circuits
The AMD K6 processor. 6 million transistors. You will design similar stuff in EECS 105. The focus of this course is on the analysis and design of basic analog and digital integrated circuits. Most ``high-tech'' products and projects depend on ICs, and a good understanding of the basic working and capabilities is crucial for every engineer. Because of this, you may consider taking EECS 105 even if you are not a "core IC person," but rather specialize in a field that depends on ICs indirectly, such as communications, controls, or computers.
Digital Integrated Circuits
CMOS devices and manufacturing technology. CMOS inverters and gates. Propagation delay, noise margins, and power dissipation. Regenerative logic circuits. Arithmetic, interconnect, and memories. Programmable logic arrays. Design methodologies. The course will start with a detailed description and analysis of the core digital design block, the inverter. Implementations in CMOS will be discussed. Next the design of more complex combinational gates, such as NAND, NOR and EXORs, will be discussed, looking at optimizing the speed, area or power. The learned techniques will be applied on more evolved designs such as adders and multipliers. The influence of interconnect parasitics on circuit performance and approaches to cope with them are treated next. Substantial attention will then be devoted to sequential circuits, clocking approaches and memories. The course will be concluded with an examination of design methodologies. CAD Tools (SPICE and MAGIC) will be used for homeworks, labs and projects.

"Technology for Living" - Independent Study
EECS 199 - "Technology for Living" is a new course aimed at involving engineering students in community service projects. The intent of this course is to seek our handicap service organizations around the Bay Area and identity projects within those organizations that might require the aid of an engineering student. The project will give the students an opportunity to formulate their own project, based on what they deem necessary. This approach will enhance the student's ability to apply knowledge learned in relevant classes to real-life projects.
