M.E - VLSI Design

The post graduate program in VLSI Design with an intake of 18 was started in the year 2008. Very Large Scale Integrated (VLSI) Circuits is a thrust area in modern technological world that has revolutionized the developments in Space technology, Defense, Communication, Instrumentation, Medical Electronics, Computing, Internet, and Modern automations in various industries. VLSI has attained maturity over last few decades during which the technology has shrunk from 10 micrometer to few nanometers by faithfully obeying Moore’s Law which states that “the technology shrinks to 1/4th the area in every 18 months”. Thus the designer needs to put four times the circuitry in the same area of chip built 18 months back. This has posed challenges to the designers throughout the world and hence created into a systematic area of study.


Lab Facilities-infra structure
VLSI lab

The VLSI laboratory is well equipped with the state-of-the-art industry standard EDA tools and hardware resources such as Xilinx 9.2i, Xilinx 14.3, Mentor Graphics HEP1, Spartan-3, Spartan-6, Altera Cyclone-2 and Virtex-5 FPGA. The objective of VLSI laboratory is to expose the UG, PG and Research Scholars to understand the concepts of Analogue and Digital IC Design and manufacturing process using the prescribed tools. The VLSI laboratory provides hands-on experience to students in the field of analog and digital circuit IC design to promote the research culture among the young budding Engineers.
