    Course Overview

    It is crucial to study the fundamentals of Digital Circuit Design to gain an understanding of microprocessor chips, standard cells, and circuits. The Digital IC Design online course, designed by IIT Madras is available free of cost on Swayam. The training aims to impart knowledge of these topics to the candidates who enroll in this program.

    In the Digital IC Design training, candidates will study various topics like computational efficiency, standard cell, resistance, delay, voltage transfer, operating the frequency of a designed circuit, and many more. This training is fundamental for pursuing VLSI Design as a major. The course gets industry support from all major VLSI Design companies.

    The Digital IC Design certification syllabus is designed at the undergraduate degree level. The curriculum covers topics from categories like VLSI Design, Electrical Engineering, Communications Engineering, and Electronics Engineering. Prof. Janakiraman Viraraghavan from IIT Madras leads this course. Throughout the course, candidates will solve multiple assignments, and the average score will be added to the final certification score.
