Course Overview

Design For Testability is a specialization in the SOC design cycle, which facilitates design for detecting manufacturing defects.  With the increase in size & complexity of chips, facilitated by the advancement of manufacturing technologies, Design For Testability has evolved as a specialization in itself over a period of time. Engineers work on introducing various test structures as part of the design flow, on increasing the testability of logic, pads, memories, interconnects. The course is designed and will be delivered by industry experts in DFT, as per current industry project requirements.  The importance is given to cover the concepts, methodology thoroughly with the right emphasis on hands-on training, using Synopsys DFT tools with at least 50 % time allocated to lab sessions.

Learner Reviews

As I was a fresher I wanted to gather more knowledge in the field of DFT. I was fortunate to get to know about ChipEdge which offers this course and regarding the teaching environment what I liked personally was we could get to learn things practically with the help of lab sessions and the theory classes.


I joined this course to get into the core industry. I learned a lot after doing this course. The trainer is excellent and cleared all our doubts asked. The trainer was open to answering even the silliest doubts. I am feeling knowledgeable after joining the course.


I joined to learn DFT theoretical and practical and to gain good knowledge in ATPG and Simulation. The trainer is having good knowledge and patient in explanations all the doubts asked. End of this course I got the self-confidence to crack interviews.



The Minimum Qualification Required Is An Educational Background In Electronics.  This Could Include

  • B. Tech/B.E In ECE / EEE / Telecom / Instrumentation.
  • M.Tech/M.Sc In VLSI / Embedded / Power Electronics / Digital Electronics / Digital Communications.

Year of Passing:

  • For freshers without job experience:  2019 / 2020
  • For Engineers with experience in a some domain:  2018 or earlier.

one should have 60% or above percentage throughout the academics

Admission into Job Oriented Courses is a two stage process:

    1. Written Test – you need to attend an online test, which tests your knowledge on fundamentals like digital electronics, CMOS, aptitude..etc. you need to score 60% to qualify for the technical interview.
  • Technical Interview – Our technical experts will take your interview on a video call, to assess your fundamentals knowledge and suitability for the VLSI field. you will be selected for admission, subject to your performance in the interview.

For more information, please visit the admission process  

Considering the covid19 pandemic, we have converted the job oriented courses with regular class room training to blended learning model.

For 4 months, you will attend the instructor led online classes from home, including labs. For the 5th month, you can come to Bangalore for doing a project if the covid19 situation improves. Else you can complete the project online. It’s up to your choice.

Except for changing the delivery model to blended, everything else remains the same ..which includes the duration of the course, syllabus, faculty,  labs, projects, placements.

As we are taking only 40 seats per the course, you will get the same care and attention from the faculty, which you get in classroom learning. 

All Our Trainers Have 10-20 Years Of Experience In The VLSI Industry. They Are Selected For Their Domain Expertise, Passion For Sharing Knowledge As Well As Excellent Teaching Skills.

We Provide Placement Assistance By Arranging Interview Opportunities With Hiring Companies. This is a complimentary service from ChipEdge, without charging any extra amount for this. We charge only for our training, but not for placements.

Every Learner Gets up to 5 Interview Opportunities To Prove their Ability. To Ensure Successful Placement, We Provide Added Support Including Mentorship, Fundamentals Classes, Soft Skills Training, Mock Interviews Etc.

Internship option available for M.tech students, integrated with the job-oriented course.


The Internship model has 2 phases.


Phase1 – Learning:  4 months

Learning respective domain knowledge in 4 months, along with hands-on labs with VLSI tools.


Phase2 – Application (Projects) :  2 months

Application of your learning in projects. one project will be part of course work, which completes in 5 months.

Whoever chooses the internship option, the extra project will be provided for the 6th month along with lab access and guidance from the technical experts.  

For further details, please check with our Learning Advisor.


We use 28nm libraries for labs, projects.

We use the latest and genuine versions of Synopsys Tools for our courses. please check course pages, for the list of tools used for that respective course. We provide a dedicated tool license for every learner during the lab/project work.

This is the biggest advantage with ChipEdge courses, as quality and standard EDA/VLSI tools are important for any VLSI course. And these tools are typically very costly ranging from $50,000 to $200,000 per license per year. Many service companies cannot afford these tools. Thanks to the EDA/Tool companies for giving these tools at subsidized & affordable rates to training companies, so that engineers can get trained on these tools

Providing real time projects is not feasible in a VLSI Training environment. The projects we provide are of similar complexity but of a medium size as executed in the industry. For Learning purposes these projects are good enough. Many working professionals & students achieved success, by working on these projects.
VLSI Companies send their engineers to chipedge, to get their engineers trained on these projects. 

We do have installment options for some courses. EMI option is available through our partner organizations, who provide loans for training programs.  please check with our Learning Advisors. 

ChipEdge believes in quality and professional approach in what we offer, which earned a reputation from industry & professionals. If you are not happy with the course quality, 100% of your fee will be refunded. 

Please visit the refund policy for more details.


Sorry, GST is mandatory for all course fee payments and tax invoice will be provided to you.. We follow the Govt Tax Laws strictly, as part of our corporate governance policy.

We understand 18% GST is significant amount. We have recommended Govt of India, to consider reducing the GST for skill development programs. We are hopeful, they will reduce in future.
