Course Overview

VLSI Physical Design Online Course using Synopsys tools IC, Compiler 2, Prime Time, StartRC, IC Validator, with Online VLSI Lac Access. VLSI  Physical Design Training has evolved as a complex specialization in VLSI and in-demand skill for the last 2 decades.  VLSI Design cycle involves preparing the design for fabrication at a selected foundry (TSMC, Global Foundries, SAMSUNG ..), with a specific technology node (10nm, 7nm..). This process involves several steps including Synthesis, floor plan, power plan, placement, clock tree synthesis, routing, static timing analysis, Timing optimization and ends with delivering GDSII files to the foundry after doing all sign-off checks. Physical Design training will give decent exposure to physical design concepts, techniques, along with hands-on labs using Synopsys tools and multiple projects at the end.

Learner Reviews

I joined Chip Edge Technologies for learning Physical Design course. I understood the concepts very well and the Trainer explained nicely with examples. Lab gave me an overall view of the tool from Synthesis to P & R , Signoff tool like Primetime are explained well and how to debug if there are errors. Overall, My experience in ChipEdge was very good and knowledgeable.

Thumati Moses

I have accomplished Physical Design course from, I feel so lucky that I had chosen the weekend batch because there I was under the supervision of the most highly experienced trainers who had the great understanding of the industry. During pandemic ChipEdge shifted their placement work to Superset, which helped me to get more opportunities. If anyone looking to knowledge and opportunities in VLSI field I highly recommend ChipEdge from my personal experience.

I Choose a weekend physical design course from Chipedge, it is a good resource where you will never get any institute like ChipEdge. Nice faculty, they'll teach theory and lab parallelly. Lab's VPN is provided which can be used anytime. Once after I finished my course they started giving placement opportunities. I was placed through ChipEdge. I had a very good experience in my learning. Thank you so much ChipEdge.
