Below is the skill set required for various domains. student can opt for courses based on the skill set interesting for them.

VLSI Front end domain(pre-synthesis flow) is a programming based job role, requires good expertise with Digital Design, Verilog, SV, UVM and standard protocols(Ex: AXI, AHB, SPI, PCIe, etc). Student should opt for this course if they are interested in programming based jobs. Front end engineer also requires ability to read the design specification, comprehend the design behaviour and implement the same using Verilog and SV.

VLSI Back end domain(post-synthesis flow) is more technology and tool based flow implementation job role, requiring good expertise with device fundamentals, VLSI technology concepts, digital design and design flow implementation using EDA tools(Ex: ICC, Design compiler). Student should opt for this course if they are interested in above skill set, and particularly not interested in programming based jobs.

Choosing the right course


  • To start with, opt for training in either VLSI Front end domain or VLSI Back end domain. Both these course will have 1.5 months of basics training, after that main course can be selected.
  • Both front end and back end domains offer similar job opportunities. Student should choose a course based on their passion and interest rather than job opportunities.
  • All VLSI Front end and Back end domain courses have common 1.5 months training, except for one domain specific course during initial 1.5 months.
    • Opt for specific domain(RTL Design, Verification, PD, DFT, Layout etc) after 1.5 months training.
    • Option to switch to any other domain without paying any additional fee during initial 1 month of the course.
    • DFT flow happens in both pre and post synthesis flow, hence DFT placed under backend flow is only for convenience.

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, I 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.
