VLSI Course – Career path and free training

Skills required

Digital Logic Design and Digital Electronics Course

This is perhaps the most important course you’ll need to build a career in the VLSI domain. Flip-flops are one of the building blocks of ICs.

Skills covered: Combinational Circuits Sequential Circuits Boolean Logic Number Systems Boolean Algebra

Analog and Digital CMOS – IC Design Course

A close second to the Digital Electronics course in terms of importance, the CMOS course will help you learn transistor behavior in a detailed manner. Transistors, as you might know, are the building blocks of chips. It is imperative for any VLSI engineer to understand how they work.

Skills covered: CMOS Inverter Power Consumption Propagation Delay Noise Static CMOS Design

VHDL course for Engineers- VHDL tutorials

A Hardware Description Language is used to implement a physical design in terms of code. VHDL is a popular HDL used in front-end VLSI chip design.

Skills covered: VHDL Testbenches

Verilog course for Engineers – Verilog coding tutorials

Verilog is a more popular Hardware Description Language.

Design For Testability (DFT) Course – VLSI

Design for Testability is a design methodology that allows chip designers to identify faults, improve manufacturing anomalies, and add an overlay of testing functionality to a chip. DFT engineer is a standalone position in VLSI chip design. It’s an exciting field and has a relatively decent number of openings across all tiers of the industry. In this course, we will learn the entire methodology from scratch and also introduce a few popular automation tools.

VLSI Course – Career path and free training FAQs

The VLSI industry can be broadly classified into three domains:

  • Digital
  • Analog/Mixed-Signal
  • RF

In this track, we are focussing on Digital VLSI and some elements of Mixed Signal design. Digital design is more popular and has higher-paying jobs (generally).
