Certification Course on VLSI Circuit Design using Industry Standard EDA tools

Course Duration

40 Hrs

Eligibility Criteria

ECE, EEE,CSE Branches


The VLSI group of the School of ECE is conducting a certification course on “VLSI Circuit Design.” Experts from the School of ECE and industry will deliver lecturers with hands-on sessions. The total contact hours of the course will be 40 hours. The course focuses more on practical sessions (25 hrs) with the required theory sessions (15 Hrs) followed by the assessment. After successful completion of the course, the candidates will be awarded the certificate.

Course Outcomes

  • Understand the advanced concepts of digital design and the basics of processor design
  • Provide an overview of the fundamental principles of VLSI, ASIC / FPGA design.
  • Analyse the characteristics of CMOS circuit construction.
  • Design and analyse amplifier circuits.
  • Design the integrated circuits using CAD tools such as CADENCE, Xilinx ISE.
  • Implement the basic building blocks of large-scale digital integrated circuits.


Verilog HDL and FPGA Design Flow

Data types, Modeling concepts, Datapath and Control path design, Task and Functions, timing analysis, basics of synthesis and simulations, Verification and developing the test benches. Design of digital blocks targeting the FPGA devices and performing the power, area and delay analysis. All the concepts will be implemented by using industry-standard tools –Xilinx ISE, Model Sim and CADENCE.

CMOS VLSI Design and Layout

Digital VLSI Design : CMOS Process, VLSI Design Principles, Stick diagram & Layout Design, Analog VLSI-Concepts and Design: Study of CMOS circuits and their electrical, voltage & timing characteristics, Design of Analog modules- OPAMP Design. All the concepts will be implemented by using industry-standard tools - SPICE and CADENCE.
