'VLSI Design Lab' is a course offered for the B. Tech. (Bachelor of Technology) in Electronics and Communication Engineering at School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.

  1. Transfer and Output Characteristics of PMOS and NMOS: Measurement of Threshold voltage, ß,?, and ?.
  2. Pass transistor and transmission logic based AND and OR gates: checking “strong” and “weak” ones and zeros.
  3. Inverter output response for a given input: Measurement of rise time, fall time, propagation delay, short circuit power and switching power for zero load and a finite capacitance load.
  4. Voltage transfer characteristics (VTC) of Inverter: Measurement of mid-point voltage (switching threshold) and noise margin.
  5. Realization of CMOS NAND and NOR gates: VTC characteristics and measurement of switching thresholds.
  6. Realization of Boolean function: sizing for equal rise time and fall time.
  7. Mirror logic based XOR and XNOR gates.
  8. Pseudo NMOS based Boolean expression realization: Checking the output swing, input capacitance and short circuit power.
  9. Dynamic and Domino logic based Boolean expression realization: Checking charge sharing and monotonicity.
  10. Transistor level realization of D Flip-flop with set and reset.
