Educators continue to face pressure from students and industry to employ the newest technology in the classroom. With regard to VLSI design and the role of CAD tools, a balance must be struck between fundamentals and training to a particular software package. This paper describes a semester project, suitable for an undergraduate VLSI course, which emphasized the design process, rather than individual tools. This process and the experiences associated with producing a pipelined, two's complement binary multiplier are presented.
