• Course level: Intermediate


This course is about the Basic concepts of VLSI System Design.

The course is designed in the form of micro-videos, which deliver content in the form of Info-Graphics. It is designed for self-learning and will help to polish the Industrial skills. This course will cover the end-to-end description from basic Device Physics to Chip Design. The introductory video series focuses on the basic elemental physics and electrical characteristics of the MOS Transistor. Designing VLSIs is like building a city. Both jobs require significant forethought

All the best for your interviews and happy learning
