The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering started M.Tech in VLSI and Embedded systems in the year 2011. The program is approved by AICTE, government of Kerala and is affiliated to M.G University, Kerala.
Advances in VLSI have made most systems to become more compact, highly reliable and ensure high speed data rate. Further the developments in VLSI make the designer to fabricate the IC for specific applications (Application Specific Integrated Circuits). Necessity of improved solutions for small size, high speed, reliability, and high performance computers, necessitates skilled professionals. Thus there is an urgent need to produce quality engineers who can design and develop VLSI and Embedded systems.
The programme curriculum is aimed at VLSI system design (both Front end & Back end designs) covering algorithms, Hardware description Languages, System Architectures, Physical designs, Verification techniques, Simulation & Synthesis, Low power design techniques and Mixed mode design methodologies. The course also offers strong knowledge in the Embedded system design by covering core areas such as Advanced Embedded Microcontrollers, Real Time Embedded Systems, Advanced Embedded System Design and System On Chip. .
