Design of Electronic Circuits & Systems Laboratory (LCSE)
The aim of this laboratory course is to show students how digital electronic circuits are designed in the real world. For that goal, participants in the course will have to cope with CAD tools specially developed to design circuits specified at RTL level, using VHDL as hardware description language.
Students will learn how to describe, simulate and synthesize digital circuits using VHDL as specification language.
The aim of this laboratory course is to apply the theoretical foundations acquired in previous lectures about Electronic Systems and IC Design. For that goal, participants will have to cope with the design and development of a medium complexity digital hardware system.
The laboratory assignments will focus mainly on the use of Computer Aided Design (CAD) tools, which enable the designer to cope with the high complexity of nowadays IC�s through the implementation of the design at high abstraction level using specific hardware description languages.
