VLSI professionals can build a rewarding and challenging career with DFT Online Course and DFT Training.
Design For Testability, commonly called as DFT is a specialization in the SOC design cycle, which facilitates design for detecting manufacturing defects. DFT Course is different than functional verification, which tests the functionality of the design and is popularly known as Design Verification.
VLSI DFT Course online has evolved as a specialization in itself over period of time, with the increase in size & complexity of chips, facilitated by the advancement of manufacturing technologies like 10nm, 7nm, DFT Engineers works on introducing various test structures as part of the design flow, on increasing the testability of logic, pads, memories, interconnects.
DFT Course Online covers different techniques like Scan Insertion to test the combinational & sequential logic, BIST to test the memories, JTAG to test the PADS..etc. Using ATPG Techniques test patterns are generated on the scan inserted design. Generated patterns are simulated and debugged in case of any failures.
VLSI DFT Course Online is designed as per industry requirements, covering SCAN, ATPG, BIST, JTAG along with hands-on labs and multiple projects covering all the DFT techniques.

What Our Learners Have to Say

I have completed my DFT course from ChipEdge. Trainers are very good and informative. Materials and recorded sessions can be accessed in LMS portal which is very helpful. The lab access through VPN has helped me to have good hands on training. The topics explained by the instructor is very clear, where sir had good patience level to explain the topics. Trainers address the problems individually. Training was helpful for placements. Thank you ChipEdge.

I pursued DFT course from ChipEdge, the instructor was excellent, the best I've experienced, and I couldn't imagine him doing a better job of seamlessly walking students through a breadth of information. He did a fabulous job pacing everything and addressing student questions. There were no problems with connectivity. Just wanted to let you know that the service provided, from registration to training was a very positive experience for me. Placement assistance provided was also very good. I intend on taking more courses in the future and referring friends/family members to take courses at ChipEdge. Thank you ChipEdge Technologies.

Training is delivered in Instructor-Led Virtual Class Room mode, on weekends. To attend the live sessions,  you need to login to the chip edge e-learning portal. For Lab access, you will connect to the ChipEdge VLSI lab through a VPN.


9:30 am to 1 pm, Saturday & Sundays

These timings are in IST (Indian Standard Timing) time zone.

Session Details:

9.30 am to 11.00 am – Lecture session

11.00 am to 11.30 am – Session Break

11.30 am to 01.00 pm – Lab Session

The course will be delivered by Senior VLSI Engineer with lab assistance from junior VLSI Engineer. Both are currently working in VLSI industry on latest technologies.

Chipedge trainers are typically having 10 to 20  years of VLSI industry experience and currently working in the latest technologies. They are typically project leads or project managers and are selected for their domain expertise, passion for sharing knowledge as well as good teaching skills.

They are available on weekends only, during class hours for live interaction.

Instructor-led online courses on weekends are primarily designed for working professionals & Freshers who want to skill or upskill themselves.

With shrinking technology nodes and increasing complexity of Chips, engineers are required to enhance their skills to stay relevant in their careers and increase their productivity.

Online courses can help you learn new skills as well as increase your knowledge in the area you are currently working. Skills that take years to master in the workplace can be imbibed in weeks using our combination of theory classes, hands-on training sessions, projects. As these sessions are delivered by Senior VLSI engineers with 10 to 20 years of industry experience, learning from their experiences is a big takeaway from these courses.

Considering time constraints for all working professionals, you can attend these courses from home.

We use the latest versions of Synopsys Tools, with a dedicated tool license for every trainee during the lab/project work. 14nm libraries are used for labs, projects.

Synopsys tools are used by the majority of product / MNC companies in the semiconductor(VLSI) industry world wide, not just in India.

Lab Access is provided through VPN. This gives the flexibility to do labs anytime, anywhere at your convenience. All you need is a good broadband connection and a laptop.

It varies as per the course duration (short/long). please check the “Lab”  tab, in course pages. Our course counselors can help you as well.

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

Course completion certificates will be provided, whoever meets the course completion criteria.

Chipedge provides placement help to all candidates by providing them industry interview opportunities.
