Overview

This course is intended to bridge the gap between students and professionals, this course can be learnt by everyone who has basic electronics background. In today’s world we hear of semiconductor industry taking giant leaps in creating fastest chips and various devices, we will try to understand what goes on behind the scenes from one aspect. A chip is manufactured after going through meticulous steps in design process, this course will aim at understanding these technology processes.

Table of Contents:

  • Introduction to VLSI

This module has two sections, one is the theoretical aspect and the other is the practical terminologies. The first section consists of concepts of MOSFET and its operation. The second section explains practical methods used in making a chip, we understand what is SoC and its blocks.

  • VLSI Chip work domains

This module will explain various work domains across the VLSI field and also the steps in bringing out a chip successfully.

  • Digital Logic Design Overview

This module aims at revising the leaner with the digital electronics basics which are used on day today basis during work. It covers basic gates and their CMOS equivalents, Combination and sequential circuits, state machine design and Programmable logic.

  • Basic CMOS Technology

In this module we understand CMOS technology closely and understand many processes that happen when a CMOS is operated. This consists of theory of CMOS, Interconnect and circuit elements, MOS transistor theory.

  • Static timing Analysis in Circuits

This topic emphasizes the importance of timing analysis in circuits concentrating on both theory and problems.

  • Verilog Programming and Synthesis

Verilog programming is a must know for every digital design engineer. This course will freshen up verilog basics learnt in Engineering and will also move to some more advanced verilog programming concepts emphasizing on synthesis.

  • Design and Verification

Design and Verification is very important in chip designing process. Every chip designed undergoes exhaustive verification throughout the release of the chip. We will understand the need for verification and languages, methodologies adopted for the same.

  • Physical design and verification

In this module we will learn about chip layout design and its various concepts. Physical verification will be introduced with emphasis on LVS, DRC and manufacturing processes.

  • Design for testability

This module will help us understand the need for DFT, we will discuss some harmful faults introduced during various stages of chip designing and how they can be caught through DFT techniques.

  • Chip Fabrication and manufacturing process

This module will make us understand wafer fabrication and steps involved in the same.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
