Duration: 2 years
Candidates who have acquired BE / B.Tech / AMIE degree in Electronics & Communication, Telecommunication Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Instrumentation Engineering, Bio-Medical Engineering and Medical Electronics by securing not less than 50% marks in aggregate are eligible. However in case of candidates belonging to SC/ST/Group 1 aggregate percentage of marks in qualifying examination should not be less than 45%. The admissions are through central counselling on the basis of merit in PGCET or GATE. GATE qualified candidates are eligible for scholarship through AICTE. A few seats are also available for sponsored and Management candidates.
Advances in VLSI have today enabled most systems to become compact, highly reliable and deliver data at high speed. Further the advances facilitate the designer to tailor the IC for specific applications (Application Specific Integrated Circuits). Requirement of improved solutions for miniaturization, high speed, reliability, and high performance computers, necessitates skilled engineers. Thus there is an urgent need to produce quality engineers who can conceive, design and develop VLSI and Embedded systems. The programme curriculum is aimed at VLSI system design (both Front end & Back end designs) covering algorithms, Hardware description Languages, System Architectures, Physical designs, Verification techniques, Simulation & Synthesis, Low power design techniques and mixed mode design methodologies. The course also offers strong knowledge in the embedded system design by covering thrust areas such as Advanced Embedded Micro controllers, Real Time Embedded Systems, Advanced Embedded System Design and System on Chip. Students also have access to industry collaborative laboratories set up by Texas Instruments, NXP Semiconductors and Free scale semiconductors.
The Department has dedicated Laboratories equipped with Electronic Design Automation (EDA) Tools such as (1) Cadence (2)Model-Sim (3)Synthesis tool from Xilinx (4) FPGA trainer Kits and (5)RTOS tool.
The students will get ample opportunities to participate to participate in projects related to, but not limited to: Design of Low power VLSI system, Optimization of Digital circuits, Synthesis of Digital Circuits, Testing of VLSI circuits, Design of Real time embedded systems & large area flexible electronics
Companies like INTEL, Infenion, Alcatel-Lucent, Tnfosys, Wipro, Texas Instruments and many more offer internship and placement opportunities
