VLSI Design Flow and VLSI Design CSE ECE Seminar Topic: Digital design is engineering and engineering means problem solving. The digital system increased chip complexity and the system capabilities.  The key for maintaining these concepts is comparing the cutting-edge process technologies with innovative designing. It is done with the help of integrated circuits (ICs), which were classified in size-small, medium, or large.

For chip implementation, three different approaches can be implemented. They are Field- Programmable Gate-Arrays (FPGAs), Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs), and Computer Aided Design (CAD) tools.

A design methodology is known as a design flow and the flow of data in the methodology is represented in a ‘flow diagram’. It displays a design flow for VLSI systems. This flow shows few basic steps like System specification, Functional design, Logic design, Schematic design, Layout design, Packaging and testing, mainly Simulation and Synthesis.

In the today’s digital era, VLSI design has a wide range of applications.  The size and nature of VLSI design partitioned into many market sections like multimedia, networking, 3D-Technologies, wireless computer, consumer, industrial and medical.

The digital devices like flip-flops, logic gates, counters, and registers together form an Integrated circuit.  Chips or Integrated circuits have been a synonymous in today’s digital era.  These chips are found in your smart card, washing machine, or car.

The collection of one or more gates which are fabricated on a single silicon chip is called as an integrated circuit(IC).  Each IC contains numerous wafers with little transistors and these are the basic building blocks of ICs.

IC generations are Small-Scale Integration, Medium-Scale Integration, Large-Scale Integration, and Very Large-Scale Integration. Applications of VLSI are Significance of VLSI for Digital TV Systems, 3D Technologies-VLSI CMOS Sensors, Communications sector, and Industrial sector.

Conclusion:

Semiconductors have been tremendous since past three decades. The number of transistors per IC has increased. The key for maintaining these concepts is comparing the cutting-edge process technologies with innovative designing.
