Digital VLSI (DigiVLSI) Graduate Certificate

Why Choose Digital VLSI?

Very-large-scale integration (VLSI)  is a rapidly changing technology in an extremely challenging and creative field that offers exciting and fast-growth opportunities for engineers.

There is tremendous industrial demand for digital VLSI designers to develop real-world applications that can make drastic changes in our daily lives. These include microprocessors in PC or workstations, chips in a graphics card, digital cameras or camcorders, System-on-a-Chip (SoC) in a smartphone or a portable computing device, and embedded system applications ranging from small portable digital watches to large home appliances, office automation, telecommunication, instrumentation, entertainment, aerospace, and automobiles.

If you aspire to design next-generation VLSI applications, it is worthwhile to know about digital VLSI. The digital VLSI certificate program provides comprehensive knowledge of current and emerging technologies in the design and test of field-programmable gate array (FPGA) implementations, application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) designs, and SoC. This certificate program will provide you with the fundamental theoretical concepts and practical know-how necessary to understand and work with various aspects of digital VLSI systems.
