Very Large Scale Integration or VLSI refers to the method of Designing and Producing Integrated Circuits (ICs). Since the advent of semiconductor technology VLSI has taken shape and it is one of the biggest industries in the world today, making billions of chips every year.
The Indian semiconductor industry offers high growth potential areas as the industries which source semiconductors as inputs are themselves witnessing high demand. The end-use industries such as mobile devices, telecommunication equipment, information technology, office automation (IT & OA), industrial machinery, automobiles and several other industries have applications for computing in some form or other and thereby necessarily have growing demand for semiconductors. Now with the concept of Internet of Things (IoT) picking up momentum, the next generation of interconnected devices would further increase the demand for intelligent computing, thereby creating sustainable demand for semiconductors.
VLSI Course for Students
This course on design and verification of Integrated Circuits is aimed to give a complete insight to the students about VLSI designing. Students also get exposure to process involved in the fabrication of these silicon chips and how each we are able to have thousands and thousands of transistors integrated on a single silicon wafer. It is a comprehensive course encompassing all the aspects along with the hands-on experience necessary for a Pg/UG student.
