This module aims at introducing the student to the fabrication techniques for ASICs (application-specific integrated circuit ) and giving the student the information needed in order to understand the architecture of Digital Systems.
Particular attention will be focused on FPGA, Microcontrolled and DSPs based systems


Introduction to the manufacturing process of integrated circuits
Implementation strategies for Digital Integrated Circuits
Custom circuit design
Semicustom circuit design: cell-based and array-based implementation approaches
Programmable Logic Devices (PLDs)
Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs)
Introduction to microcontrollers: microcontrollers versus microprocessors, architecture and applications
Introduction to DSPs: considerations on DSP architecture and applications
