VLSI-1 and VLSI-2 design class for my degree back in the 80's. We
used MOSIS and some grants, designing some custom bit-slice
microprocessors. I think it was more like $50,000 back then, but I
could be wrong. I think we had five teams in our class and each
team designed a chip. They worked as we designed them. Pretty cool
stuff. Ours were ceramic 64-pin DIP's.
I could point you to the professor at my school that taught that
class. If he's still there.
