Objectives The VLSI (Very Large Scale of Integration) digital systems are the basis of the electronic applications that are used in everyday life, such as computers and peripherals, automotive, mobile phones, digital TV, high definition set-top boxes, DVD player and recorder, etc.. The course aims at introduce students to the design flow of VLSI electronic systems and wants to give special importance to the technological aspects that characterize the realization of VLSI systems nowadays. An example are the DSM (Deep Sub-Micron) effects, which introduce different physical problems compared to the technologies of the last century.

The module of VLSI provides a strong practical component which consists in carrying out a number of laboratory exercises based on the use of appropriate tools for simulation and circuit synthesis.
