VLSI Career Guide- Jobs in Vlsi-Cmos Chip Designing

Friends, I prepare a article with the help of my vlsi friends hope it will helps many in some way:

  1. Who should prepare for this VLSI course and who should not?

Answer: Those who are deeply interested in core electronics and like the subjects of Electronics Circuits, Digital electronics, C programming, Networks (named few). But if you think that interest does not matter and you can do very hard work then it is your choice.

  1. Is this field for me, because I have not interested in chip desiging , Cmos vlsi circuits or semiconductors, all these stuff??

Answer: No, you have several other options like networking, software , embedded etc. (search on internet and see article Career in Electronics and wait for more articles )

  1. Present status of career in VLSI and news:

Answer: Huge demands of VLSI Engineers. Check these articles on VLSI Design as a Career-

  1. Learning material related to VLSI?

http://www.asic-world.com (Avery very useful site)

http://www.soccentral.com/results.asp?CatID=246 (good site for projects and white papers)

  1. Recommended Books for VLSI Preparation?

: First and foremost requirement for VLSI is digital electronics.

Book for Digital Electronics: Stephen Brown , Tocci

One more point here I want to add that is FSM ( finite state Machine) is really very much required for VLSI.

  1. You must a good knowledge about the resistive and capacitive nework i.e electrical networks.

Book for Electrical Network is:Circuit Theory By Chakarwarty.

  1. CMOS design: Neil & Weste , Janam Rabey
  2. Analog Electronics: Boylsted , Milmann Halkias.
  1. Has anyone done VLSI course from our college?

Answer: List of persons who have done this VLSI course from our college and are well placed in good companies.

  1. Vinayak Ranjan (2003 Batch from Sandeepani-School of VLSI Design
  2. Nitin Gaur(2004 Batch from Sandeepani-School of VLSI Design
  3. Bakashi(2004 Batch from Sandeepani Banglore )
  4. Vikas(2004 Batch from Vedant Mohali)
