Course Overview

Physical Design 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 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. Physical Design Course is designed as per industry requirements and delivered by experts from VLSI Industry, who are currently working on latest technologies.

Learner Reviews

My expectation to join this course was to get into the PD domain and Yes, it met my expectations. The trainer is excellent and he answered all types of queries I asked. The materials provided are good and helped to crack the interviews. After doing this course it helped me to get into PD domain.

Haritha

I Have done a Physical design course in ChipEdge. Mostly all the concepts I learned through practical labs with the help of trainers. Trainers are from product based company with more than 10 years experience. One Good Thing is, they have provided an individual license for all to practice the tool, which has a VPN facility. Through ChipEdge placement assistance, I got placed in Moslogi.

Ajay

My expectations to join this course was to understand complete PD flow, practically implementing the theoretical knowledge of PD and taking the design from RTL to GDSII. The trainer knows in and out of the PD. I just say that I am lucky to get trained by him. The trainer gave equal opportunity to everyone to resolve doubts faced by candidates. Overall, I am satisfied with the course and it met my expectations.
