1. Sigma delta modulator for MRI receiver system

Tools : Spectre, Virtuoso, Assura

Technology : TSMC 180 nm, 7 metal layers

Role : Design, Schematic entry, DRC & LVS

Description : The design involves the analog design flow to meet the target specifications. The design is targeted to 180nm TSMC technology with low power methodology and good resolution involved.

2. Multi feedback Band pass filter

Tools : Cadence- Spectre, Virtuoso, Assura

Technology : TSMC 180 nm, 7 metal layers

Role : Design, Schematic entry, DRC & LVS

Description : The work involves the design, layout of OTA and Multi feedback band pass filter for its use in the Magnetic Resonance Imaging receiver system with low power as the key consideration.

3. USB Wrapper

Tools : SOC Encounter XL, CTE, Nanoroute

Technology : TSMC 90 nm, 5 metal layers

Design Size : 520K gates, 5 macros, 3 clocks

Role : Floor-planning, P&R, CTS, Timing Closure

Description : The design process was targeted to meet slack & skew by various timing optimization techniques. The design was analyzed for placement and routing congestion & other relevant issues connected with the design. After some floor-planning and placement iterations the results were found to meet the requirement.
