What does a VLSI physical design Engineer do?

Design and check chip layout circuit design. Plan and organize design projects or phases of design projects. Perform developmental and/or test work, reviewing product requirements and logic diagrams. Prototype, construct, modify and evaluate semiconductor devices and components.

What is VLSI physical design course?

The course will introduce the participants to the basic design flow in VLSI physical design automation, the basic data structures and algorithms used for implementing the same.

Is physical design a backend?

The backend process is responsible for the physical implementation of a circuit. It transforms the RTL circuit description into a physical design, composed by gates and its interconnections. The main phases of the backend process are Synthesis and Place&Route.

Which one is part of physical design?

What is NDM file in physical design?

Note: Milkyway library was used in ICC1 in ICC2 we called it as NDM (New data model) Milkyway is a Synopsys library format that stores all of circuit files from synthesis through place and route all the way to signoff.

What is physical design course?

Overview. Physical Design Training is a 4 months course (+2 months for freshers covering Device fundamentals, IC fabrication, timing concepts. Course also involves multiple hands on projects using Synopsys Implementation flow(DC, ICC II, Star RC, PT, ICV). It is among widely used PnR flow in industry.

Is physical design front end or back end?

Backend mostly deals with physical design part of the chip which includes Floorplan,Map,Place and route and DFT and ATPG scan insertion and checks for the flip flops. Also includes physical verification part of the chip,memory characterization,analog layout and design. Then comes circuit extraction using SPEF format.
