Course outcomes: At the end of the course, the students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate understanding of MOS transistor theory, CMOS fabrication flow, and technology scaling.
  • Draw the basic gates using the stick and layout diagrams with the knowledge of physical design aspects.
  • Demonstrate ability to design Combinational, sequential, and dynamic logic circuits as per the requirements
  • Interpret Memory elements along with timing considerations
  • Interpret testing and testability issues in VLSI Design

Question paper pattern:

  • The examination will be conducted for 100 marks with a question paper containing 10 full questions, each of 20 marks.
  • Each full question can have a maximum of 4 sub-questions.
  • There will be 2 full questions from each module covering all the topics of the module.
  • Students will have to answer 5 full questions, selecting one full question from each module.
  • The total marks will be proportionally reduced to 60 marks as SEE marks are 60.
