|Title:||ECE/CS 6712 - Digital IC Projects Testing, Spring 2013|
|Instructor:||Ken Stevens, firstname.lastname@example.org, MEB 4506, 585-9176|
|Office Hours:||by appointment|
|Prerequisites:||MOSIS fabricated chip from ECE/CS 5710/6710/6770|
This course is for students who have designed and fabricated a digital integrated circuit through MOSIS in conjunction with ECE/CS 5710, 6710, or 6770. The options for evaluating functionality, performance, power, and radiation will be discussed along with the equipment usage and options. Students will become familiar with the Tektronix LV500 chip tester and logic analyzers. The characterization of the chip will be carried out, and a report will be presented to the class. The portion of this report suitable for satisfying MOSIS fabrication requirements will be submitted.
None. However, course materials and documentation will be provided.
|Disability:||If you have one that needs addressing contact the instructor immediately in the beginning of class.|
|Add/Drop Policy:||The University is very strict on this, and we abide by their policy in this course.|
|Incomplete Policy:||Due to the project nature of the class, you cannot get an incomplete unless you have a documented medical or legal emergency or military call.|
|Functional chip tests||50%|
|LV500 schmoo plot||10%|
|Test data files||10%|
The 74F547 Tutorial must be passed off with the instructor before testing your chip.
|Information and Downloads:|
Currently the only working ftp board resides on the LV512. You ftp to the machine from any cade machine. You can only use generic ftp, not ssh or sftp. To upload or download a file, first connect to the Simulation directory.
