Hi fellow friends and professionals

I am a final year student and have been shortlisted for an interview for VLSI layout engineer position next week. I have prepared on some topics;
•MOSFET characteristics, operations, cross sectional view
•Digital logic gates, multiplexers, boolean algebra, flip flops and latches
•RLC circuit, diode characteristics
•Basic layout techniques, design rules and LVS

I am hoping u can advise me on whether my preparation is enough or do i need to add any topic. I hope u can help me. All your opinion are really appreciated.

Thanks and good luck for your future undertakings!

One thing you must must not forget is:
CMOS inverter, its characteristics.i.e Vo/Vi curve. W/L ratios. Width of n-mos p-mos, why p-mos is larger.
Redrawing the Vi/Vo graphs if p-mos and n-mos are equal widths.
Nose margins is also v.important.
wish you luck. Can you say what company it is?

Avi
