Block level input database will be given and the participant has to complete routing, after cleaning all the issues during sign-off checks.
Training is delivered in Instructor Led Virtual Classroom mode, on weekends. To attend the live sessions, you need to login into the chipedge e-learning portal. For Lab access, you will connect to the ChipEdge VLSI lab through VPN.
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 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 who want to 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. 28nm libraries are used for labs, projects.
Synopsys tools are used by majority of product / MNC companies in 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 “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 provides loans for training programs. please check with our Course Counsellors.
Chipedge provides placement help to all candidates by providing them industry interview opportunities.
After a successful course completion, certificates will be provided.
