VLSI Industry - Introduction

VLSI Industry is a lucrative Industry for Electronics Engineers. Every year 2000 chips are being designed in India and nearly 20000 engineers are working on various aspects of the VLSI chip design.

This industry focuses on cutting edge technological innovation and needs deep R&D work. It offers one of the best salary structures. Most of the electronics gadget we see around is an end product of VLSI industry. For e.g., Smart Phone, Tablets, Laptops, Smart watch, TV, AC, Washing Machine, Automatic Car, Data center etc. Some of the leading companies working in the field of VLSI are Samsung, Intel, Google, Apple, Facebook, Cisco, Qualcomm, Philips, Nokia (Now Microsoft), ARM, Nvidia etc.


Opportunities in VLSI Industry

Due to recent advancement in IoT and Automotive industry, there is a huge demand for research and development in the semiconductor industry. As per the recent news and information, there is a plan for setting up India's very first semiconductor wafer fabrication manufacturing facility (In Gujarat, planning to start in 2017). All these new developments and need of high-end electronic components will lead to huge demand in employment generation in India. 25000 new employment opportunities are expected by 2017 and more than 500,000 jobs are going to open up in the electronics sector in coming five years.

Challenges in VLSI Industry

This industry has a great opportunity for trained skill development. The skill needed for chip design is unique and needs special training beyond the academic curriculum.

For VLSI industry

• Product development cycle is shorter

Every 6-month new technology comes to the market. Engineering team needs to learn and deliver fast. 

• High R&D cost & high competition

- In order to minimize the R&D cost in the huge competitive market, companies need to design their product in minimum time. They do not have time to hire and train engineers. There is a gap in demand and supply of right skilled engineers in this field and companies are looking for more trained resources. Due to the gap in the academic curriculum and industry expectations they are facing a lot of challenges in hiring the right candidate from colleges. Due to this particular reason companies are relying more on lateral hiring which ultimately disturbs the ecosystem and create fewer opportunities for fresh graduates.

• Industry is dynamic

- Due to increased competition, companies need to design an innovative product with the distinguished feature set.

For candidate - readiness for VLSI industry

The most important question is: How can a candidate meet Industry expectations?
Before they begin their journey in VLSI industry, they need to have answers for some of the key pointers mentioned below:
• What's the exact requirement for Industry?
• What is needed to fulfill that requirement?
• What processes or steps should be followed to be part of this Industry?
• How can someone know whether they are ready for this Industry?

Industry-Academia Gap Analysis

Gap Analysis

On the basis of extensive discussions with industry experts, we found that they are facing challenges in hiring and are looking for more skilled graduates/engineers for the industry.

Industry challenges in hiring right resource at entry level:

• How to hire the right candidate with appropriate skillset?
• How to ensure and be confident about expertise in a particular skill-set by seeing their academic performance?
• How to ensure hiring right resource in the 1-day interview process?

At the same time, students/fresh graduates/engineers have several open-ended questions in their mind.

Issues faced by students:

• How can we be ready for VLSI Industry?
• Why is Academic learning not sufficient for entering into the VLSI Industry?
• What topics/subjects should be studied and how deep it should be?
• Lack of pre-defined standard compared to any other competitive exams?
• How can we assess ourselves and make sure that we are ready for Industry?

This leads to an opportunity for skill development of college students so that they are fully ready for the industry.

Shilpa VLSI


Even though I am a Physical Design diploma holder, it was not that easy to get a job in the semiconductor Industry. I pursued my goal through EduSaksham's program. I got to know about the program through one of my friends. I bought one of their product about STA. It was really good and worth to study. Apart from that, they helped me a lot to transform my dream of getting a job in Semiconductor domain into a reality. Now, I got placed in Blackpepper Technologies Pvt. Ltd. and working in client location. Thank you so much for your great work and dedication towards us. - Silpa Pushpan, B.Tech, College of Engineering Poonjar, Kottayam Kerala




Anjali Arora


I want to thank from the bottom of my heart to Mr. Puneet Mittal for his guidance and support which help me to crack interview in ARM. Static Timing Analysis is very important part of VLSI Design. His training methodology has helped me to make my STA concept & foundation strong,  which is much needed for an interview. He cleared every doubt properly. If you write that you know STA then obviously interviewer will be going to ask Setup & Hold time (not only definition but much in depth). Like how to remove Setup violations and how to decrease delay. He taught me 10 different ways to do all these. But Interviewer wants only one. The Interviewer must be impressed if you know things like this. - Anjali Arora - M.Tech, Indira Gandhi Delhi Technical University

This course can be a one stop solution to all the MS students who are aspiring to get into VLSI industry. My wait for a good resource to get a strong hold on VLSI fundamentals has finally come to an end with an outstanding course, SMP+, from Edusaksham. 
The way Instructor explains complex concepts in a simplified way with examples and analogies truly deserves appreciation. Each online test helps to understand the concepts in depth and takes the learning experience to the next level.  - Praveen - M.S., U C Berkeley



Priyanka Ruhil

You must be thinking is it worth the money? Yes! It definitely is. Being a student of instrumentation, it was always a dream to be a part VLSI industry. But EduSaksham, through its tremendous efforts helped me in getting an internship in Cadence. VLSI- Self Mentorship Program comprised of a lot of information in form of lectures, assessments, webinars, test papers, even the information related to semiconductor industries. And the best part about the course is its test series. These test papers are actually designed with diversified difficulty levels covering almost every topic from digital circuits, timing, delays, and CMOS in a very effective manner. And obviously, getting taught by an expert of STA is a perk itself. My personal experience with this program was way more than informative and splendid. I forgot to mention it you ( Mr. Puneet Mittal ) are a wonderful teacher. - Priyanka Ruhil, 3rd Year, Instrumentation Branch, YMCA University Of Science And Technology, Faridabad




I want to express my sincere thanks to Puneet Mittal sir for mentoring me and helping me to understand the VLSI concepts in depth and upto the mark of  industrial standards. I had enrolled for the "Self Mentorship Program"  conducted by EDUSAKSHAM Team which is headed by Puneet Sir. The webinar course helped me to clarify the Concept of Static Timing Analysis and Physical Design in more details. Also, his excellent support and guidance in writing resume and assistance in approaching in a right way while preparing for interviews paved my way in cracking the technical rounds and interviews in an efficient manner and ultimately getting a good job in the VLSI Industry. - Anindita Nayak (Digital design engineer at Peaksense Technologies Pvt Ltd)




In spite of having basic knowledge about layout, digital, analog etc. and having an exposure to Cadence Virtuoso, Getting an opportunity for an interview was a major problem for me due to my degree of B.Tech and not being from a very good college. Searching for different opportunities on Linkedin I came across Puneet Sir. I have learned basic STA from his blog VLSI EXPERT. I messaged him and requested for his help, He simply asked me to solve some Edusaksham's assessment papers. He guided me on my resume enhancement, took frequent interviews, and asked me to rectify my mistakes. It is due to his efforts that I got a chance in Gatelength Technologies. I want to thank Puneet sir for his guidance and mentorship, you are the reason because of whom students like me who are not of Tier A colleges end up getting placed in the core. It is you sir because of whom I could see my future bright. - Utkarsh Arora (IO Layout Engineer at GateLength Technology Pvt Ltd)
