VLSI at the EE Department, University of Maryland, College Park
VLSI (=Very Large Scale Integrated) circuits are key to today's
high technology. Students with a working knowledge of VLSI find
themselves to be in high demand by industry.
Therefore it is the intent of the VLSI related faculty to make available to all
students of the EE Department the chance
to design, simulate, fabricate, and test VLSI chips.
For students in our courses, funds for the fabrication of
chips, particlarly Tiny Chips, are made available through NSF funding
for fabrication via the MOSIS foundry (for which simulation and
testing are required)

Typical designs include artificial neural networks,
models of the ear, chaos generators, fuzzy membership circuits,
and multiple limit cycle oscillators.

Typical designs include RISC processors, DSP chips,
low power CMOS chips, controllers, and A/D converters.
