Why study Very Large Scale Integrated (VLSI)?

VLSI, or Very Large Scale Integration, describes computer circuits or “chips.” Sophisticated computer programs are used to create circuit designs and to ensure they perform as desired, before they are produced in circuit foundries. This field is dynamic, due to new technologies necessary to deal with the continually shrinking size of circuits and with the constant need to reduce the electric power they use.
