San Francisco State University School of Engineering ENGR 852: Advanced Digital Design (3 units)

Course Objective: This course is designed to teach students advanced topics in digital design, from high level system description down to ASIC implementation. The course begins with a review of the digital design flow and fundamentals of digital design and then moves towards the system level design of digital systems. The design at the system level is done using Verilog hard-ware description language. The students will experience HDL description of digital systems, synthesis, and optimization to gatelevel. The main objectives of the course is   To prepare the student to be an entry-level industrial standard cell
