  • Proposed Occupation

    PG-DVLSI is a pioneering course offered by C-DAC to assist engineers who wish to gain theoretical as well as practical knowledge in the field of Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) design. It will also prepare them to keep pace with the changing trends of VLSI technology and the requirements of an ever-growing VLSI design industry. The entire course syllabus, courseware, teaching methodology and the course delivery have been derived from the rich research and development background of C-DAC, which has a legacy of designing the PARAM range of supercomputers.

    At the end of the course students will be able to do field- programmable gate array (FPGA) implementations, application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) designs, CMOS design and SoCs in VLSI industry as VLSI designer/ chip designer and verification engineer. Students will also be able to develop a programmable chip using verilog and system verilog languages.

  • International Comparability
    • Course which covers field- programmable gate array (FPGA) implementations, application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) designs, CMOS design and SoCs and verilog and system verilog languages in six months full time courses are not available. Various institutes are running courses but as sub set of this courses like:
    • Maven Silicon  Bangalore is running various VLSI courses (http://www.maven-silicon.com/)
    • Harvard University (https://www.extension.harvard.edu/academics/courses/course-catalog)

    NIU (National Ilan University) Taiwan http://ecewww.niu.edu.tw/zh_tw/Introduction/DepIntroduction

  • Progression Pathway

    These candidates will be trained in various VLSI Technologies, Project implementations and Management skills. 
    They can start career as VLSI designer/ chip designer, verification engineer/tester and leads to project lead/manager or Entrepreneur after having relevant experience.

    Candidate can start from level 8 and lead to further levels.
