ECMP 486: Research in VLSI Systems

Final Project Guidelines

Here are some guidelines for the final project. One option is to read three or four papers in a specific area of VLSI design automation, and make a presentation to the class. Another option is to further explore some concept that we studied in class; perhaps you've had some idea on how to modify some method we've studied, or you have a better idea on how to solve one of the problems! You could do a small experiment to try out your idea, and report back to the class on the results (with a no-more-than half hour presentation). The key here is to pick something relatively small scale; my intention is that the experiment should take no more than three or four weeks.
