Research Project Title

Design of an Integrated Circuit using CAD for Industrial Implementation

Research Project Description

The industrial software is used for simulation and design of integrated circuits (chips). We have designed SRAM memories with different technologies, circuits for “energy haversting” and a very simple microprocessor (VSM or Very Simple Microprocessor). For these designs we have used educational libraries and Tunnel-FETs models that are an emerging technology. We are currently working on a design of OTA amplifiers and VSM implementation in 180nm TSMC technology that is craftable. One of the medium-term goals is being able to design a chip and manufacture it. USFQ would be a pioneer in the field.
