Course Overview

Very-large-scale integration (VLSI) is a process of embedding or integrating hundreds of thousands of transistors onto a singular silicon semiconductor microchip. VLSI front-end design includes digital design using a hardware description language, for example, Verilog, System Verilog, and VHDL. Furthermore, this stage encompasses design verification via simulation and other verification techniques. The entire process also incorporates designing, which starts with the gates and continues through to design for testability. So, understanding digital electronics is very important in terms of IC fabrication and placement as front-end engineer.
