Minor in VLSI Design | Minor in VLSI

VLSI Design or 'Very Large Scale Integration' Design is a course offered to create students who are academically and practically skilled in designing semiconductor devices and circuits and designing systems using embedded components utilizing small space.

A minor in VLSI Design focuses mainly on designing electronic components like microprocessors and memory chips, which require millions of transistors. The process of designing these chips is analogous to the above example, and the only difference is the number of components.
