IIT-Madras will establish an interdisciplinary center of excellence for facilitating research on embedded systems, very large scale integration (VLSI) design, and enabling technologies. IIT-Madras professor Kamakoti Veezhinathan, speaking during the inaugural session of the 24th international conference on VLSI Design, said partnerships will be formed with industrial players to pursue innovative projects.
More than 100 researchers, designers, and industry experts will discuss various aspects of electronic design automation and embedded systems that underpin the semiconductor industry during the three-day conference. Participants also will address the challenges of India's VLSI sector, which is growing and needs to attract more young engineers.
"Instead of training students of engineering to be 'industry-ready,' engineering colleges should equip them with the fundamentals of design and engineering, that would help them understand processes better," Veezhinathan says. India has a shortage of skilled faculty in specialized fields such as circuit design and VLSI, he says.
