Description

This is a follow-up course on my previous one "Circuit design and SPICE simulations - Part1" 

It is a must, that you go through Part 1 of this course, to fully understand and apply using open source tools. This course will help you do some advanced quick SPICE simulations, while you analyze the behavior of your devices.

In this course we will cover:

1.Voltage Transfer Characteristics - SPICE simulations

2.Static behavior Evaluation : CMOS inverter Robustness

•Switching Threshold

•Noise margin

•Power supply variation

•Device variation

So let's get started (again) and keep those questions coming in the forum, and I will answer all of them.

See you in class !!


Who this course is for:
  • Anyone interested to know, what drives this $Billion VLSI industry
  • Anyone looking to do some practical and hands-on work on SPICE simulations
  • Any professional already doing Static Timing Analysis and wants to go into details of delay models
  • Anyone looking to stay for a long time in VLSI domain
