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.
Design for Test course is designed and will be delivered by industry experts in DFT, as per current industry project requirements. In the Design for Test Course 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.

Considering the covid pandemic, we have converted the job oriented courses with regular class room training to Live Online Training Model.
You will attend the instructor led online classes from home, including labs. For 5th month, you can come to Bangalore for doing a project if the covid19 situation improves. Else you can complete the project online. Its upto your choice.
Except changing the delivery model to blended, everything else remains the same ..which includes duration of the course, syllabus, faculty, labs, projects, placements.
As we are taking only 40 seats per the course, you will get same care and attention from the faculty, which you get in class room learning.
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 some domain: 2018 or earlier.
one should have 60% or above percentage throughout the academics
We Provide Placement Assistance By Arranging Interview Opportunities With Hiring Companies. This is complimentary service from ChipEdge, without charging any extra amount for this. We charge only for our training, but not for placements.
We extend placement assistance, till one gets job. To Ensure Successful Placements, We Provide Added Support Including Mentorship, Fundamentals Classes, Soft Skills Training, Mock Interviews Etc.
We provide comprehensive placement assistance, but we do not give any placement guarantee. We provide quality training and interview opportunities to all our learners, but how you utilize the opportunities and crack the interviews will solely depend on you.
As per our knowledge, most of the training organizations/colleges, even premium colleges like IITs/NITs/IIMs, they do not guarantee the placement. As per the reputation of the organization, companies do visit for hiring and candidates get jobs. It depends on the candidates, how they utilize the course for learning and proving his/her talent when the opportunity is provided.
Salary Range For Freshers Is From 3- 4 Lakhs Per Annum In Service Companies. Salaries In Product/MNC Companies Can Range Between 7 To 12.5 Lakhs.
Each year many companies visit ChipEdge for recruiting the various positions because of the quality training that we offer. Both Service Companies like Altran, HCL, L&T, Synapse, Insemi, Cerium, sankalp, Tessolve, ..etc as well as Product Companies (MNCs) like Intel, Samsung, Synopsys, MediaTek, Global Foundries, Microsemi ...etc visit us regularly for hiring.

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 14nm 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 dont have 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. No Cost EMI option is available through our financial 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.
