What is Physical Design Training?
Physical Design Training is an area of training under Very Large-Scale Integration course that is offered by various institutions as a certified course. It is mostly a month-long training course and an additional month for fresher. The course has fundamentals covered such as device fundamentals, timing concepts, UNIX OS, TCL and advanced digital design along with advanced applications in the course. It also offers aspiring engineers to get in-depth knowledge of all the aspects of Physical Design flow that has Netlist, GDSII including Placement, Floor Planning, power panning, global routing, power analysis, ECO and scan chain reordering. It also covers different hand on projects based on the theory application provided which is a widely used PnR flow in the industry.
The physical design course in Bangalore has been illustrated really well and is supported by the backing of real time samples from the industry. There is both macro and micro level understanding being impacted across the concepts of the physical design flow as one of the highlights of the course. The physical design training Bangalore is provided with multiple assignments at the end of each module thereby covering all the aspects of implementation and practical experience as well. Additionally, these assignments also prepare you or interviews and big projects in the future.
