VLSI (Very-large-scale integration) is the process of creating an integrated circuit (IC) by combining billions of transistors into a single chip. VLSI began in the 1970s when complex semiconductor and communication technologies were being developed. The microprocessor is a VLSI device. Before the introduction of VLSI technology most ICs had a limited set of functions they could perform. An electronic circuit might consist of a CPU, ROM, RAM and other glue logic. VLSI lets IC designers add all of these into one chip.
VLSI is a technology by which 10000-1 Million Transistors can be fabricated on a single chip. Now, what is the necessity for fabricating that many of Transistors on a single chip?
In olden days during the vacuum tube era, the size of Electronic Devices were huge, required more power, dissipated more amount of heat and were not so reliable. So there was certainly a need to reduce the size of these devices and their heat dissipation. After the invention of SSD’s, the size and the heat produced by devices was undoubtedly reduced drastically, but as the days passed the requirement of additional features in Electronic Devices increased which again made the devices look bulky and complex. This gave birth to the invention of technology which can fabricate more number of components onto a single chip. As the need of additional features in Electronic Devices arised,the growth of VLSI Technology has improved.
VLSI is the key behind increased electronics market growth, VLSI has helped companies to reduce the size of the devices and increase the reach of electronics to everyone.
in today’s world VLSI chips are widely used in various branches of Engineering like:
Voice and Data Communication networks
Digital Signal Processing
Medicine and many more.
Advantages of VLSI:
VLSI has many advantages:
1. Reduces the Size of Circuits.
2. Reduces the effective cost of the devices.
3. Increases the Operating speed of circuits
4. Requires less power than Discrete components.
5. Higher Reliability
6. Occupies a relatively smaller area.
n present scenario, VLSI is a very bright and effectual field. All what you need to sustain here is the experience and the knowledge. VLSI industry can’t be declined ever although it can be upgraded in ULSI or something else. If you are good at what you do then there are lots of companies which are providing a better opportunity to make the career in VLSI.
As far as VLSI industry growth in India is considered, it is even more promising for the following reasons
- Government of India’s new electronic policy giving boost to VLSI industry by way of Electronic Development Fund [EDF] to steer startups in the industry and MSIPS to incentivize electronic industries to set up in India.
- ‘Make in India’ campaign to promote domestic manufacturing, on the way to setup two fabrication facilities in Gujarat and Utter Pradesh, that gives great thrust to VLSI industry.
- ‘Skill India’ campaign actively promoting skill development in VLSI domain.
