  • 1. VLSI Career Prospects for the graduating EE/ECE Engineer in India
  • 2. VINCHIP SYSTEMS VinTrain VLSI Academy We Train… You Gain…
  • 3. Introduction to VLSI Design
    • VLSI - process of creating integrated circuits consisting of millions of transistors
    • Analog and Digital integrated circuits are used in multifarious segments
    • Process technologies have improved steadily over the years
    • 45nm is the current process technology node
  • 4. Current Challenges in VLSI Design
    • As portable devices flood the market, low power consumption is key
    • As process nodes scale down, physical design challenges come to the fore
    • Timing/Design Closure - harder to achieve due to high frequencies of operation in the range of 2 Ghz
    • Manufacturing challenges due to decreasing die sizes
  • 5. India - The top destination for semi companies
    • Offshoring business forecast to hit $21Billion by 2012 acc. to Zinnov
    • Key attraction - Maturing talent pool
    • Bangalore - largest hub after Silicon Valley
    • Increase in sophistication and complexity of projects undertaken
