This lecture deals with the design of digital circuits in CMOS technology. The students learn alternative techniques for the realization of basic circuits as well as their manufacturing and design process. By using practical examples, various forms of implementation of integrated circuits are discussed and current challenges of today's chip development in modern semiconductor technologies are presented. After completing the module, students are able to independently design VLSI chips.
