VLSI is very large scale integrated electronics. VLSI though is a part of the electronics engineering, but the two are not the same. Let be elaborate it for the better understanding.


Electronics Engineering is an engineering discipline where you study the various electronics components be it transistor, diode, integrated circuits etc. The integrated circuits have been quite an interesting field in the last few years as it makes possible for the engineer to design the large circuits in a small area. The efficient mechanism helps to improve the overall performance of the circuit. Therefore the integrated circuits are gaining popularity.

These integrated circuits are divided in to various categories depending on the number of transistors that the circuit has, on a single chip. The number of transistors may vary depending on the technology that is being is used for the fabrication. Therefore the various categories are assigned to them - small scale integrated circuits, large scale integrated circuits, very large scale integrated circuits. It is the very large scale integrated circuits that VLSI deals with.

In the VLSI, tens of thousands of transistors are fabricated on a single chip. Microprocessor is a VLSI device and is being used in most of the VLSI design processes. VLSI involves both hardware and software understanding of the electronic design and specially microprocessor. The choice of whether to work on hardware or software part, remains yours. VLSI is an emerging field and has huge number of applications in today's world. From robotics to industrial processes, you will find VLSI everywhere. Therefore it is a hot thing in the electronics world.

Therefore in the large world of electronics engineering, VLSI constitutes a small segment but it is an important one due to its huge applications and relevance in the electronics industries. If you are studying electronics engineering you will study few courses on VLSI and therefore can develop your expertise in this field. Again, the thorough and clear microprocessor understanding is must if you want to succeed in this field.
