What is VLSI and Embedded Systems?
The M.Tech program in VLSI Design and Embedded Systems will cover the fundamentals and engineering aspects of designing and developing IC-based systems. Traditionally, VLSI technology has emerged 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?

One of the best VLSI institutes in Bangalore, CMR IT’s VLSI program will focus on the development of hands-on skills in designing semiconductor devices and circuits, and architecting systems using embedded components such as CPU, and 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.

Evaluation Criteria


The Internal Assessment marks in a theory paper shall be based on three tests generally conducted at the end of 4, 8 and 12 weeks of each semester. An additional test may be conducted for students who wish to improve their IA Marks.

The test shall be answered in Blue Books with pages serially numbered.

There shall be a maximum of 50 internal marks in each theory or practical paper. The internal assessment marks shall be based on the average of best two test performances out of the three that a student shall write during the course of the semester.

In case of a Practical, the IA marks shall be based on the laboratory journals / reports and one practical test.

The IA marks in the case of Projects and Seminars shall be based on the evaluation at the end of respective semester.


Assignments are given to students after completion of each unit of the syllabus. Assignments comprehensively cover all of the important aspects of each topic in a particular unit.

A student who has completed an assignment will have gained good familiarity with all the topics covered therein. Completing the prescribed assignments will greatly help students prepare for the internal assessments and the final exams. However, these assignments will not be considered for the award of internal assessment marks.

The Student Assistant for the course will neatly script solutions to assignments, and after due checking and correction by faculty, these solutions will be scanned and made available on the faculty webpage for all students to access and download.
