VLSI Flow can be majorly be divided in to 11 steps as below. These can be majorly divided in to two categories, VLSI Front end flow and VLSI Back end flow. VLSI Front end flow consists of design flow starting from architecture to functional verification. Rest of the flow starting from Synthesis to Physical verification is VLSI Back end flow. Assuming team has 50 engineers.

Below shows possible distribution of team members in various domains(value in brackets is number of engineers)

– RTL Design (2, SOC development mostly works on IP reuse, most of IP development happens out side India)
– RTL Integration (2)
– Functional verification (13)
– Formal verification (1)
– Power aware verification (1)
– Synthesis (2)
– Physical Design (13)
– STA (3)
– DFT (2)
– Custom Layout (4)
– Physical Verification (4)
– Post Silicon validation (3)

VLSI Design flow starts with requirments, then it gets developed as a architecture, which is implemented using Verilog RTL(or VHDL) coding. This RTL code is verified using Systemverilog & UVM (C + SV for SOC) based testbenches. This stage is called functional verification. The flow till this stage is called as VLSI Front end flow(similar to software job). This is more programming oriented. The flow starting from this point(RTL code) till it gets manufactured in to a chip is called VLSI Backend flow. It involves multiple stages(Synthesis, DFT, Physical Design, STA, Custom Layout, Physical Verification, Fabrication and Post Silicon validation). VLSI Front end domain is more programming oriented and VLSI Back end is more tool and VLSI technology oriented. As shown above, every domain offers job opportunities. Even though Functional verification and Physical design offers more opportunities, they also have more people undergoing training. Hence student should choose domain of training based on interest rather than job openings.

RTL Design, RTL integration, Functional verification, formal verification is more focused on understanding design specification, learning bus protocols and implementing designs and testbenches based on these protocols using Verilog, SV & UVM. Job role is more programming oriented.

Rest of the flow (from Synthesis toll Post silicon validation), also called post-synthesis flow does not involve much of programming. These jobs are more EDA tool usage oriented. Engineer need to learn various aspects of the flow and learn required commands in tool to implement these steps. It may involve learning 100’s of tool commands and their significance to the VLSI Training implementation flow. The overall flow is implemented using TCL commands(above tool commands), so it will TCL exposure. It also requires good fundamentals of CMOS, FinFET, 2nd order effects, timing closure and digital design.

Student doesn’t need to learn all the aspects of VLSI flow. Choose one domain and get complete expertise in that topic.

When a student joins institute, we do not make any assumption on their current preparation level, all the training starts from basics.

Education should be affordable to majority of the people. VLSI Training Institute is driven by the ideology of making quality education affordable to everyone. Having said that, all courses are well organized and with industry best trainers covering each course.

All the jobs in VLSI Training industry at 0 – 7 year experience level does not require expertise in complete VLSI flow. The engineer is not expected to work on complete flow during initial 0-7 years of experience. Focus on complete flow does more harm than helping engineer’s career, with reduced focus on a specific aspect.

Job require specialization in one of the aspect below, and jobs can be categorized as below :

  • Marketing team
  • Architect
  • Design Engineer
  • Integration & Synthesis Engineer
  • Verification Engineer (Functional & Timing Verification)
  • PD Engineer
  • STA Engineer
  • Layout Engineer
  • DFT Engineer

A job aspirant should focus on one of above aspects to get in to the industry, while gaining more expertise on the chosen aspect by extensive focus, rather than doing course on complete flow .

Institute has tie up with select VLSI companies. Student will get opportunity to attend these companies interviews.
Number of opportunities student gets also depends on their performance during course.

No. As a Design & Functional Verification engineer, there is essentially no difference between ASIC & FPGA. Both ASIC & FPGA have same flow during design & verification. The difference comes in way backend flow is done, which does not affect a verification engineer.

The reason colleges/universities focus on teaching design in FPGA flow is because of the low cost of project execution on FPGA. Executing a project on FPGA involves only Spartan or any other FPGA board. Whereas same design flow costs in millions of rupees to be executed in ASIC flow. Hence colleges focus on FPGA flow teaching.

Yes. All the participants will receive VLSI Training completion certificate from VLSIGuru, with their grades based on their performance during the VLSI training.

Tools from Synopsys and Mentor Graphics. We are the only training institute to have licenses from both Synopsys and Mentor graphics.

It depends on current preparation level. Below is the time it takes to gain perfection in various courses. Verilog : 105 Hours Systemverilog: 240 Hours UVM: 150 Hours Physical Design Flow: 360 Hours CMOS + FinFET + Digital Design : 80 Hours PERL or TCL Scripting: 30 Hours UNIX : 15 Hours VLSI Design flow: 10 Hours Digital Design(Basic & Advanced): 50 Hours Fresher looking for job in VLSI Front end or Back end will require 600 hours in total. Duration of preparation will depend on number of hours(focused preparation time) spent per day. For each hour of training, student need to spend 2 hours of time for self-preparation 1 Hour for revising session notes, labs, preparing own notes. 1 Hour for practicing course assignments and labs.

Yes. It is possible to get job in VLSI even with few years gap after graduation. You need a right guidance.

Yes. 2 Years is short span, so with right set of projects and right skill set, you will find opportunities in VLSI Training Institute.

Yes, we do have. • Ideally, we do not suggest anyone to undergo 2 weeks training, because training requires repeated interactions between trainer and student. • 2 weeks of time will not give time to complete the assignments, it is most important aspects of the course

• Yes, you can complete. However your preparation may not be up to mark.

Do not register for complete VLSI training course. • You should start of by opting for basics course(for front end it is Verilog and Advanced Digital design, for Backend it is Physical design basics training). If you find these courses interesting, then you should opt for complete VLSI training course. Many institutes might not offer training only in Verilog, but you should insist, because once you pay the fee for complete course, they will not refund. • If you do course in VLSI basics by spending less fee, you will still have option to pursue with VLSI or look for career in other domain.

For a fresher salary can be anywhere from 2.5 Lakhs to 6 Lakhs. Product companies do offer up to 15 Lakhs, but they mostly hire from campus.

All the courses are offered in both classroom and online. Online sessions are done using live gotomeeting training. Student attending online will get the same support as students from classroom.

Yes. Institute is open from 7AM to 9PM on all days. We strong recommend every student to prepare at institute. • Being at institute offers lot of benefits • Unlimited access to recorded videos from the course • Mentor guidance • Clarify doubts right away • Compare your preparation level with other students • Group discussions among other students

Yes. It is strongly recommended to stay close by Our VLSI Training institute. There are many Paying guests (PGs) available nearby institute (within 1KM).

All courses are already offered at a lowest possible fee. Discount is offered to students from BPL economic status.

Teacher is an important part of anybody's education.

I completed my post graduation in 2005. During my school and College, I always had difficulty coping up with things in classroom. But my Telugu teacher Mr. Hussain Budde during my 7th class , I used to enjoy his way of teaching, way he used to engage students by teaching lessons as stories. After that, I never found any teacher who kept sessions so much engaging. I don't want to blame my teachers, I always felt they could make sessions more engaging. I always had to spend time outside class hours to cope up with every minute of classroom session.

I as a teacher, adopt a style of teaching which keeps session engaging and ensures that students give 100% focus on the session. I always wanted to be that one teacher, whom my students will remember for lifetime. I am making sure that, rest of trainer's also follow same.

I want your 6 months of education at VLSIGuru to be among your best learning experiences. We at VLSIGuru will do our best to make this a memorable time.
