VLSI Design Centre -  An overview

Special Manpower Development Programme


The objective of this program is to develop the VLSI activities with the establishment of VLSI Labs by giving training to under graduate,post graduate (MS / M Tech) and Doctoral (Phd) levels in VLSI related fields.

DIT initiated the "Special Manpower Development Programme for VLSI Design and Related Software" (SMDP-I), involving nineteen institutions categorized into 7 Resource Centers (RC's) and 12 Participating Institutes (PI's). After completion of this project in March 2005, the second phase of the program (SMDP-II) was started in 2005  The Ministry has provided adequate funds to set up VLSI Design Laboratories with advanced CAD software tools in all the 32 institutions which is formed by 7 resource centres and 25 participating institutions.


Special Manpower Development Programme for Chips to System Design

Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has initiated Special Manpower Development Programme for Chips to system Design with the following broad Objectives

a) Bring in a culture of system on Chip/System designing by developing working prototypes with societal applications using mostly in-house designed ASICs/ICs
b) Capacity building in the area of VLSI/Microelectronics and Chip to System development i.e to train Special manpower in the area of VLSI Design and chips to Systems at BE/B.Tech,ME/M.Tech and PhD   level
c) Broaden the base of ASIC/IC designing in the country
d) Broaden the R&D base of Microelectronics /Chip to system through “Network PhD” program
e) Promote “Knowledge Exchange Program”
f) Promote protection of “Intellectual Property” generated under the program

The Program will be implemented at 60 institutions across the country. PSG College of Technology is one among the 60 institutions in India, Sanctioned with the total project outlay of 1.69 Crores.
