VLSI Group

Research Areas
Development of VLSI Architectures for Signal Processing and Communication Algorithms, VLSI Design and Hardware Verification.

Research and Activities
The research activities in the VLSI Group mainly focus on Digital and Analog circuit design. The department is a part of SMDP II programme and the major CAD tools have been made available by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology. A novel inductor structure is developed, and for verification a VCO and LNA designs and layouts have been completed. The group is enrolled with Euro Practice for getting designs fabricated.
