This is an introductory course on integrated circuit design. The concepts presented here are the fundamentals that any IC designer must understand prior to pursuing advanced IC design concepts.
To understand IC design techniques, one must have a good understanding of circuits and systems concepts. IC designers must have an intuitive feel for ohm's law, kirchoff's laws, and the physics that governs the behavior of transistors. For this reason, a short review on semiconductor device physics is beneficial.
