M.Tech in VLSI DESIGN AND EMBEDDED SYSTEMS
M.Tech in VLSI Design and Embedded systems was started in the year 2003 in the Department of Electronics and CommunicationEngineering. The program is approved by AICTE, the government of Karnataka and is affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University, Karnataka.
This course aims at preparing students to develop knowledge and skills in VLSI design and Embedded Systems. The course will give students the capability to understand the requirements of EDA development, library design, analog, and mixed-signal design, semiconductor chip design, design and verification of ICs, FPGA development and SOC design. Analysis, design, and implementation of integrated circuits using standard tools help the students to be industry ready. This is a 2-year graduate program which involves two semesters of intense coursework, one semester of internship in leading VLSI and Embedded system companies and a final semester for the project making it a job-centric program. The program curriculum includes VLSI Design, Advanced VLSI Design, Hardware description languages, Analog & Mixed mode Design, VLSI Algorithms, Advanced Embedded Systems, CMOS RF Circuit Design, and other electives prescribed by the university. The program has well-qualified and committed faculty to cater to the needs of the students. Department’s faculty members are involved in research encompassing a broad spectrum of expertise in the areas of VLSI, DSP, Image processing, wireless sensor networks, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning. Faculty members have rich academic experience and wide industrial and R and D exposure, which help them in bridging the gap between institute and industry. The postgraduate program in the department is equipped with digital classrooms and state of art laboratories that cater to the varying needs of curriculum delivery. The laboratory facilities include VLSI Lab using industry standard CADENCE tool having libraries for 45nm, 90nm and 180nm technology, Texas Instruments lab, Embedded lab and many more. The postgraduate students of this program are placed in Sankalp semiconductors, KarMic, Accord, AllGo Embedded Systems, Sasken, Tech Mahindra, SLK, Mindtree, TCS Solutions etc.
