With the invention of transistor at Bell Labs in 1947, the Electronic Circuit Technology shifted from vacuum tubes to transistor devices. In 1958, Jack Kirby of Texas Instruments for the first time integrated number of transistors on a single chip. The technology era of SSI, MSI and LSI was thus born. This gave the tremendous boost to miniaturization of complex electronic circuits.
VLSI (Very Large Scale Integration) is the process of creating an integrated circuit by combining thousands of transistors into a single chip. Thus a CPU, ROM, RAM, and Control Logic could be put into a small chip famously known as Microprocessor. This has a tremendous impact on electronic systems and the products grew smaller and smaller in size, consuming very less power and enormously increasing the reliability. VLSI is the backbone for today’s laptop computers, smart phones, digital PDAs, digital TVs and host of other commercial products. Today’s consumer products like washing machines, refrigerators, automobiles, safety devices etc. uses invariably VLSI designed chips. In 2008 itself, billion transistors were commercially integrated into a single chip. Moore of Intel stated that every two years density of devices put on a chip would double.
Current design of VLSI Circuit uses extensive ‘Design Automation’ for logic synthesis to layout the transistors which requires the higher levels of complexity and functionality. New inventions in fabrication using modern photolithography techniques enabled realisation of smaller die sizes and increase in clock frequencies. Multi core and Multiprocessor architectures are today available in market. But a VLSI designer must keep track of strict complex design rules for layout. Thus Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools came into market to assist the designers of VLSI. Some of reputed sellers of EDA tools are Mentor Graphics, Cadence, Synopsis etc.
ECE Department, realising the importance of VLSI Technology has established a full fledged well equipped VLSI Lab. The Lab has full-fledged CADENCE Tools which enable the students to simulate, synthesize and check the design for its functionality, in terms of logic, power, speed and Hardware realization. The realization of a practical VLSI Chip takes places on XILINX, ISE, FPGA, ALTERA etc. general purpose chips. The VLSI Lab supports chip realization using XILINX tools. Many students have designed complex electronic circuits using the EDA tools available in the Lab. Lot of potential exists for research work in this field of VLSI.
M.Tech - WIRELESS & MOBILE COMMUNICATIONS
M.Tech- WIRELESS & MOBILE COMMUNICATIONS is a two year full time post-graduate program approved by the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) for the students who have a B.E/B.Tech in any branch of engineering. The course is offered by the department of Electronics and Communication Engineering by highly qualified and experienced teaching faculty. Intake to this course is 18, selected by J N T University by common Entrance Test.
Wireless Communications is having an enormous impact on today’s human civilization. The ability to communicate when on the move evolved remarkably into a challenging Wireless Mobile Technology. In 1897 Gugliemo Marconi first demonstrated the radios ability to provide continuous contact with ships sailing in English Channel. Since then the Wireless Mobile Communication has grown by orders of magnitude fuelled by tremendous improvements in Digital Signal Processing, VLSI Technologies etc.
This propelled the growth of Cellular Radio Technologies completely changing the life style of a common citizen of rural and urban world. These trends will continue at even greater pace during the coming years. The availability of handheld mobile phones at affordable prices with more and more features, have tremendous impact on commerce, marketing, business and social life of society.
Starting from 1G, the WMC technology has grown into 2G, 2.5G, 3G, 4G and now racing towards 5G. The simultaneous growth in no. of voice channels and escalation of data rates was possible because of remarkable growth in Technologies like Spread Spectrum CDMA, GSM, Modulation Techniques, OFDM, MIMO, Orthogonal Error Coding, Packet Switching Standards, LTE Networks etc. Across the years due to miniaturisation, and advances in computer processing, WMC has become a multibillion dollar industry and poised to overtake, TV and Computer industries in the coming five years.
ECE Department in its endeavour to keep in step for modern developments, is offering a post graduate course in Wireless & Mobile Communication. In order to make the student understand the WMC Technology, a well equipped state-of-the-art WMC Lab is established. In the lab the student through experimentation learns the concepts, study the modern techniques, architectures, digital modulation, spread Spectrum etc. In order to carry out research in both hardware and software tools like MATLAB, Communication Tool Box, CISCO Packet Tracer, NS2 Simulator, HFSS Tools, NETEUMEL etc. are provided. With the available special software and hardware in the lab, students can work on innovative research topics, since WMC Technology is still a virgin field waiting for exploitation and challenges.
