What is VLSI and Embedded Systems?
The M.Tech program in VLSI and Embedded Systems will cover the fundamentals and engineering aspects of designing and developing IC-based systems. Traditionally, VLSI technology has emerged out as a successful conglomeration of two streams: Material Science and Electrical Engineering. The state of the art VLSI technology requires research in physical devices as well as novel design and development of electrical circuits.
What will I study in the course?
The VLSI program will focus on the development of hands-on skills in designing semiconductor devices and circuits, architecting systems using embedded components such as CPU, memory and peripherals. Students will learn several topics that cut across different domains, starting from the lowest level of physical devices to the top level of application development. Students will learn CMOS VLSI Design, SOC Design, Advanced Embedded Systems, VLSI Design and Verification, Design of Analog and Mixed-Mode VLSI circuits, Real- Time OS, Advanced Microcontrollers, Low-Power VLSI Design and more.
Besides in-classroom learning, what other opportunities do I have to learn?
Upon successful completion of the program, graduates will be able to design, develop and prototype VLSI systems, apply verification methods, design-for-test techniques to IC designs for testable designs and high yield, and use hardware description languages to design cores and standalone logic.
Students will learn several topics that cut across different domains, starting from the lowest level of physical devices to the top level of application development.
