VLSI Design

VLSI, or Very Large Scale Integration, refers to the process of creating an integrated circuit (IC) by integrating millions of transistors into a single chip. It emerged after the semiconductor manufacturing process evolved to the point where it was technically and economically feasible to build ICs with large numbers of transistors. VLSI design involves the drafting of circuit designs for microchips and programming them into physical hardware. The designs are usually created using Hardware Description Languages (HDLs), such as VHDL or Verilog.
