Very Large Scale Integrated (VLSI) Design is the process of designing computer chips, more specifically, integrated circuits (IC) using computer-aided design (CAD) tools on a workstation or a personal computer.
At Chitkara University, the objective of this program is to provide students with comprehensive knowledge of VLSI circuits and systems which is core to the electronics chip manufacturing industry. The program emphasis the key aspects of hardware design and development for VLSI applications. Prime focus is laid on the areas like VLSI system design, ASIC design, FPGA based systems design, RF circuit design, and SOC based design and verification.
With recent and rapid upsurge in the areas like hardware, software co-design, architectures for machine intelligence, network on chip etc., the program is designed to cater to the needs in producing Engineers trained, in both, hardware and software, bridging the gap between the academia and industry. Apart from a bright scope to pursue higher education and research, students can pursue career opportunities in diverse fields such as Process Industry, Manufacturing Industry Consumer Electronics, Communication Networks and Automation Industries. Students can find excellent placements in leading core companies like IBM, Texas Instruments, NXP, Wipro, GE, Motorola, Honeywell, HCL Technologies, Tata Elxsi, RBEI, TATA, DELPHI, among others.
The VLSI discipline is for design and verification of electronics systems and circuits. Its applications are found in areas like signal processing, image processing, networks and communication applications.
The curriculum focuses on employing hierarchical design methods and understanding the design issues at the various levels of hierarchy. Students are exposed to various design software in this program, and learn to design, simulate, implement & test complex digital systems using FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays). The main objectives of the program is to analyse the electrical and design characteristics of transistors, gates and study the issues & methodologies involved in the integration of these devices into complex high performance systems.
