VLSI Design

Resources | 06 January 2017

Very Large Scale Integrated Design is all about how to design, manufacture, test and deploy Integrated Circuits (ICs) for various electronic applications such as smartphone, television, laptop, desktop, cars, airplane etc. In this page, I will be updating resources related to VLSI design such as books, blogs, courses, videos etc.
