If you aspire to design the next wonder chip, it is worthwhile for you to know about very-large-scale integration (VLSI). VLSI Technology has succeeded in making a drastic change in our daily life from first generation computers to today’s smartphone. Instead of accommodating more circuits in the system, an Integration technology was developed to increase the number of components that are to be placed on a single chip. This Technology not only helped to reduce the size of the devices but also improved their speed. In olden days during the vacuum tube era, the size of Electronic Devices were huge, required more power. So there was certainly a need to reduce the size of these devices and their heat dissipation,hence the growth of VLSI Technology has improved.
The trend in design and manufacturing of very large scale integrated circuit shows an ongoing move towards smaller devices on increasing wafer dimensions. VLSI circuits are used everywhere, real applications include microprocessors in a personal computer or workstation, chips in a graphic card, digital camera or camcorder, chips in a cell phone or a portable computing device, and embedded processors in an automobile.
