Have you seen the circuits designed in the 1990s? Circuits at that time used to be very bulky. Now with advancements in the Integrated circuits industry gave us the same and even better performance in a smaller space. The best example is the first computer in history which took a whole room space whereas now a computer is the size of your palm and is extremely faster too.
This technology implemented to design or create an integrated circuit which takes less space and is far more efficient by using more than a thousand transistors in combination is called as VLSI. The term VLSI is abbreviated as “Very large scale integration”. VLSI technology was started in the 1970s. To give you an idea of where VLSI technology we are giving you the example of the latest Intel chips which contains around a few billion transistors. If you know VLSI design process you can opt for well-paid jobs in the semiconductor industry with recruiters like Intel, AMD, Qualcomm, and Apple etc.
This article briefs you what is VLSI design and some latest VLSI projects for engineering students.

1. VLSI Starter
It is the process in which making or creating an integrated circuit is developed by the combinations of thousands of tiny microscopic transistors infused in a single chip. A VLSI chip designer is responsible for designing the functions of the system on a chip known as SOC as per the requirements specified to him.

An electronics engineering student can get an amazing career by getting into the VLSI industry. In order to prove yourself among the completion, you will need an upper hand. This can be achieved by improving your knowledge of VLSI by designing VLSI projects or VLSI mini-projects as per your choice. In this section, we will discuss the best VLSI projects you could start working on. It is recommended that you click on any project that interests you so that you can get complete information regarding the project.
Let us discuss Some VLSI courses to do before jumping into projects.
1. VLSI starter
This VLSI online course is designed to teach you the basics of VLSI with Xilinx ISE tool for complete information regarding the course please visit the below link.
2. VLSI explorer
This course is designed to take your skills to the next level and make you more comfortable with VLSI atmosphere.
3. VLSI champion
This course takes your VLSI skills further to the next level. It also included VLSI based projects like designing Static RAM.
As we discussed the prerequisites now let’s dive into the cool world of VLSI projects.
1. Design and implementation of Real-time traffic light Control
This VLSI mini project is based on FGPA based traffic light controller and is designed to reduce the wait time for drivers during peak hours.
2. Fuzzy PID controller made using VHDL for transport specific application
This VLSI project is used to avoid collision between vehicles by reducing their speed whenever they approach another vehicle and also alerts the driver.
3. Designing and Implementation of a VLSI based robot that avoids collisions with RFID technology
As there is increased used in robots in the industrial application the chances of collision between them increases. Now to avoid the situation of a collision this VLSI project was made.
4. 3d lifting based discrete Wavelet transform VLSI project
This VLSI mini project is capable of producing highly accurate images without compromising on any details. It is a great project to start image coding.
5. Design of high-speed hardware using 4 Bit SFQ multiplier
This VLSI project implements an improvised booth encoder by taking into use 4-bit SFQ multiplier which successfully improves the performance over conventional booth encoder.
6. A high-speed low power multiplier using Spurious power suppression technique
This VLSI project is designed to remove unwanted signals generated while working transmission of data.
7. Automating home appliances using the wireless Bluetooth system
This cool VLSI project lets you control your home appliances like fan, air conditioner, and fridge etc. wirelessly. It uses a wireless Bluetooth module for project implementation. After making this project you can control home appliances right from your mobile phone.
8. Controlling a robotic arm using FGPA (field-programmable gate array)
This project intends to convert a mechanical robotic arm to a user-programmable arm. This robotic arm is capable of picking up objects and dropping them to another place. Hence making it significant in industrial usage.
9. Temperature management system using IOT (Cloud-based working)
There are many situations where we are required to monitor temperature continuously. It would be great if we can access the data anywhere through the internet. This project is designed based on the above requirements. It can record temperature data of its surrounding and send it to the cloud for further assessment.
10. Distance measurement using the Ultrasonic sensor with FGPA device
This VLSI project can be used to assess the distance. The project specifically detects the obstacle before it and uses the ultrasonic sensor to determine the distance between an object and itself.
11. Game development using FGPA and image processing
This VLSI project requires the user to first design, wire and install the program on the FGPA to start playing the game. The game here is TIC-TAC-TOE and can be played by two players.
Some more cool VLSI mini-projects to look after are mentioned below.
