The continuous shrinking of transistor channel lengths to less than 10 nm today has undoubtedly led
integrated circuits technology revolution to enter into a new era of art and science but at the same time
there is a growing need to address complicated issues like deep-submicron non-ideal effects in CMOS,
precise transistor modeling, interconnect, signal integrity, low-power and low-voltage design, leakage
management, impact of PVT variations on timing and robustness.
The faculty of Telecommunication & Information Engineering in UET, Taxila has taken an initiative to
become part of 21st century IC design revolution by establishing Institute of Applied Technologies IC
Design Centre whose sole purpose is to prepare the students with a strong technical emphasis on both
the theory and practice of IC design. At the moment, the selected courses of IC design are offered where
students use the following Cadence products in classes as well as academic research projects.
- Custom IC(Virtuoso integrated design environment, Cadence Physical Verification Suite, Spectre Circuit Simulator)
- Digital IC(Innovus and Genus)
