EE698P is an advance level course in Microelectronics and VLSI (MVLSI) stream focusing on the recent developments in the memory technology and their unconventional applications such as neuromorphic computing, hardware security, etc. in this era of internet of things (IoT) and big data. The course is best suited to the junior and senior undergrads, M.Tech/M.S.(R) and PhD students. At the end of the course, the students should be able to:
(a) Understand the memory organization and the operating principles and design guidelines for different state-of-the-art volatile as well as emerging non-volatile memories.
(b) Develop an appreciation for different unconventional applications of memory devices apart from storage such as neuromorphic computing.
Prerequisite: Any basic course on Semiconductor Device Physics and/or Digital Circuits (EE311A/EE370A for undergrads)
EE370A is a departmental core course in EE which intends to provide a deep insight into the world of digital electronics from a design perspective. At the end of the course, the student should be able to:
(a) Develop an understanding of the digital circuit design techniques and the trade-offs associated with the design methodologies for digital circuits and memories.
(b) Develop an appreciation for the hierarchical design translating the elementary combinational and sequential circuits to complex systems.
