Course Description

In this course students will acquire advanced theoretical knowledge, practical and critical analytical skills which can be applied to investigation and resolution of complex problem solving scenarios inherent in electronic design automation tools. The course material has been developed to enhance students' communication skills, individual and group project participation and other professional capabilities important to practice as an Engineer exposed to EDA tools and design methodologies.


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

 

This course contributes to the following program learning outcomes:

1.3. In-depth understanding of specialist bodies of knowledge within the engineering discipline.

2.1. Application of established engineering methods to complex engineering problemsolving.

2.2. Fluent application of engineering techniques, tools and resources.

2.3. Application of systematic engineering synthesis and design processes.


On completion of this course, students should be able to:

  1. Utilise and apply high level competence in EDA design flow environment;
  2. Apply high level technical competence tools to all design;
  3. Apply design flow and tools to all design;  
  4. Implement functional design and verification using an industry standard EDA tool;

Apply practical and critical analytical skills to investigation and resolution of complex problem solving scenarios inherent in electronic design automation tools


Overview of Learning Activities

Learning activities will take the form of:

  • Lectures
  • Laboratories
  • Assignments


Overview of Learning Resources

Learning resources will consist of recommended references and class notes which may be accessed through "myRMIT" if you are in Melbourne and via "RMIT online" if you are based in Vietnam.The set of references is deliberately broad, including books, journal publications, government reports, industry standards and handbooks, and web-based resources.
