Course Preamble

The complex Very Large Scale Integrated (VLSI) systems are built on System on Chips  (SoCs). In a SoC usually, many processor cores and the essential peripherals are  wrapped. To design a SoC, knowledge in processor architectures, various bus protocols, etc. are essential. Also, the SoC verification is more challenging as it involves the verification of many complex scenarios. Therefore usually the SoCs are emulated on a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) and the real chip verification will be carried out before spin. This VLSI SoC Design and Verification course focus on building the necessary industry skills required to work in SoC Design/Verification/FPGA Emulation
projects. The course focus on industry-standard Advanced RISC Machine (ARM) processors based SoC design, verification, and FPGA emulation. The necessary skills (Verilog HDL Coding for synthesis, FPGA Architecture and Programming, System Verilog based Verification, etc.) required to perform industry jobs are covered in this course. The course will transform the successful participants into industry-ready
employable engineers. In addition, it helps to conceive and hand-hold startup industries in the VLSI SoC Design/Verification/Emulation domain.

Course Objective

PG Diploma in VLSI SoC Design and Verification Course is intended to impart skills essential for VLSI Circuits design, ARM based SoC design, Verification, Software programming, OS porting and building applications.
