The courses will be dictated in Spanish mainly, but it depends of the audience.
Los cursos se dictaran principalmente en Castellano, pero esto depende de la audiencia.
Four courses will be offered at EAMTA 2019. Students of Design Tracks will work as a final project on a chip design using EDA/CAD tools. Programs, PowerPoint Presentations and Exercises will be uploaded as soon as they are available. Each participant can take only one course track.
Provide the student knowledge of the physical fundamentals of the operation of MOS devices, as well as the principles fundamentals of the CMOS microfabrication process. Also, let the student acquire the ability to design basic analog and digital circuits, as well as the use of CAD tools.
The goal of this course is to provide basic theoretical and practical tools for the design of analog circuits over integrated circuits (chips). The design techniques analyzed in the course provide a basis for the design of amplifiers in CMOS processes. Laboratory practices will emphasize high-speed operational amplifiers.
BASIC DIGITAL DESIGN
The course aims to teach the basics of digital design. In the first part it is reviewed the concepts of the HDL Verilog language and it is presented the basic elements of the digital design: Combinational circuits and sequential circuits. During the second part the concepts of time and the delays of the gates and signals are addressed, in order to understand how to properly design a digital circuit. It is shown the importance of correct design, not only from the logical point of view, but also from the time domain, this is to make it work efficiently or, in our case, fast enough to meet the application requirments. In the third part, a synchronous circuit will be simulated and implemented in an FPGA. During this process it will be verified that all the constraints are met and finally its logical operation will be validated.
ADVANCED DIGITAL DESIGN
The goal is to give the student the knowledge about the problems and tools related to the design of specific application integrated circuits (ASIC), including problems related to time, performance and power optimization, and verification tests. In addition, we will provide students with the knowledge, theory and tools involved in the design of large-scale digital integration systems (VLSI) for architectures with millions of transistors. Students also will understands the different Design metrics.
