Integrated Circuit Design Lab

The Integrated Circuit Design Lab contains 32 student workstations in order to accommodate courses with larger class sizes. Each workstation runs Red Hat's Enterprise Linux distribution and contains powerful current-generation hardware and the maximum amount of system memory, providing students with powerful and efficient machines to use for programming and simulation. These powerful machines and industry applications are provided thanks to the support of the ECE Department's industry partners, including Synopsys, Mentor Graphics, and Cadence.

Classes in this lab primarily focus on integrated circuits, a major foundation of modern electronics. Topics range from analog circuits to more complex concepts such as VLSI (very-large-scale integration) and ASIC (application specific integrated circuits). Students utitlize a wide range of softwares and tools as well as FPGA development hardware for assignments and projects that require computer modeling and simulation, debugging, and verification.
