Title NanoSkills : Training new skills for the new jobs in nanotechnologies
Project Number 510591-LLP-1-2010-FR-LEONARDO-LMP
Product Design of Nanoscale MOS ICs
Title Design of Nanoscale MOS ICs
Product Type open and distance learning
Marketing Text A training to get a hAbility to design submicron CMOS ICs using CADENCE and solving problems with modelling of submicron devices behaviour. ighly specialised knowledge on CMOS integrated circuit layout, basic technology, IC design and modelling and specific physical effects in short channel transistors.
Description Problems related to the design and investigation of submicron and nanoscale MOS integrated circuits are covered by this course. Currently there are some nanotechnologies in the means of 65nm design kits, which are available via the EUROPRACTICE organization. The main attention is drawn to the theoretical and practical usage of state-of-the-art industrial CAD systems, e.g. CADENCE, SYNOPSYS and others. The designers who use those systems can implement nanoscale elements from the relevant standard cell libraries. The specific parameters, related to the nanoscale effects are represented in the embedded system models of the elements.
