About Department

The Centre for VLSI and Nanotechnology started with the research facilities in the analog and digital domains and has grown steadfastly since its inception, expanding into the areas of nanoelectronics, MEMS and photonics. The centre has excellent research facilities for carrying out research in different areas of Micro & Nano Electronics, VLSI and Photonics. The centre is actively involved in R & D as well as consultancy projects and has collaborations with several industries, academic institutes, and R&D organizations in the country including MeitY, DST, ISRO, DRDO etc.. The laboratories are adequately equipped with state-of-the-art facilities.

The centre is undergoing vigorous growth in emerging areas of Microfluidics, MEMS cantilever, Photonics Devices, Nanoelectronics devices modelling and characterization. The infrastructure comprises of a wide variety of electrical characterization equipments for High-frequency devices as well as DC measurements down to femto-amperes and probe station for wafer level characterizations including low temperature & high temperature capability. High Performances Cluster Computation Servers, High-end workstations with advanced configuration, which support almost all the commercial CAD tools such as Cadence, Synopsys, Mentor Graphics etc and Softwares for VLSI, nanoelectronics and photonics such as Gaussian, VASP, Synopsys RSoft, Ansys Lumerical etc.

Major ongoing projects in the lab are :

a. Special Manpower Development Program – Chip to System Design (SMDP-C2SD)

b. Characterization and Simulation of Nanodevices sponsored by Ministry of Communications and Information Technology.

c. NPMASS sponsored by ADA.

d. Project running in collaboration with DRDO, ISRO, CSIR, DST, Indian Railways etc.

Department's Vision and Mission


The Department is committed to provide postgraduate academic and research programs to produce high quality human resource with ability to meet the global challenges associated with global challenges in the field of VLSI Design, Nanoelectronics and Photonics.


The mission of the centre is to achieve excellence in engineering education, research and professional service. It is endeavored to equip students to assume leadership positions in engineering practice, education, research and serve the mankind with most modern technology, serviceability and economy.
