Kunal Ghosh

Kunal Ghosh is the Director and co-founder of VLSI System Design (VSD) Corp. Pvt. Ltd. Prior to launching VSD in 2017, Kunal heldseveral technical leadership positions at Qualcomm's Test-chip business unit. He joined Qualcomm in 2010. He led the Physical design and STA flow development of 28nm, 16nm test-chips. At 2013, he joined Cadence as Lead Sales Application engineer for Tempus STA tool. Kunal holds a Masters degree in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay, India and specialized in VLSI Design & Nanotechnology.

Hands on with Technology @
1) MSM (mobile station mode chips) - MSM chips are used for CDMA modulation/demodulation. It consists of DSP's and microprocessors for running applications such as web-browsing, video conferencing, multimedia services, etc.
2) Memory test chips - Memory test chips are used to validate functionality of 28nm custom/compiler memory as well as characterize their timing, power and yield.
3) DDR-PHY test chips - DDR-PHY test chips are basically tested for high speed data transfer

4) Timing and physical design Flow development for 130nm MOSFET technology node till 16nm FinFET technology node.
5) "IR aware STA"

Till now, it was very good experience in learning and understanding.Thank you

Since it is a basic course, I was expecting a little more of details on routing like difference between global and detailed routing etc. This could be positioned in place of a detailed SPEF format which I thought is too much of syntax for a basic course.

Yes, this was a nice video lecture tutorial series for learning about the VLSI Physical Design Steps

Intuitive and to the point explanation. Very well explained and understood why different components are used in VLSI Industry. Strongly recommend others who are interested in the VLSI field.

It was good. The author could have explained about base layer, metal layer, a diagram to show base layer and metal layer difference, what is via, etc.

First of all; Thank you Sir, for such a good explanation and interesting slides of the physical design flow. I would say this is a must course before entering into the PD profile which will give a very good idea about PD flow. It is totally worthy course.

Very well explained. Kudos to the instructor!

Thank You Kunal for Wonderful , precise, and industry oriented course on VLSI Physical Design Course.

My main reason behind opting for this course is to have a crisp understanding of the concepts involved which has been properly nailed by the Instructor.

ya its good,concepts can understand very easily.one can easily understand, what actually the vlsi,in the short period of time

This course is a brief theoretical overview of the physical design flow. I very much liked the videos and a good course to start with, in VLSI world.

The instructor is always running out of time and is in a great hurry. Overall the course was OK, could have been better. For Beginners, the course is like an introduction to the physical design flow.
