    Condition Introduction to VLSI System Design
    The goal To give students deeper knowledge of the digital VLSI system Front-end and Back-end design. Provide the students with the ability to design, implement and test digital VLSI systems using ASIC design tools. To give students the knowledge of low power integrated circuits design.
    The outcome Ability to design, simulate, implement and test a digital system using ASIC design tools.
    Contents
    Contents of lectures Front-end design: ASIC design methodology, reusable VHDL code. Design for testability, ATPG. SoC design.
