One of the best courses that I have come across in the Coursera platform which is very interesting, I'm very glad that I took this course which leads to exploring some concepts of VLSI.
Very good course and instructor. The material used in the course is very good and the theories and heuristics were explained in best possible manner with help of examples.
Slightly Tough !
Its test are kind of tough , hard to score 70+ in 1 attempt,. Anyway procedding further to the second part of the course. INcase you are literally stuck at quesns, tick all the ans , it will help you next time as they will tell you all other answers. Welcome.

A very good overview of the vlsi world from the standpoint of Boolean functions logics and algorithms. Don't take this course expecting to learn about physical layout however, its mostly about designing algorithms and programs to optimize computer processed designs.

The course takes the 'hands-on' experience on VLSI CAD Logic. It provided in-depth on details of the logic synthesis, leading me the great pleasure of discovering I had so much to know about a subject I imagined I was familiar.

An interesting course, generally you learn about the synthesis but not about the algorithms of the synthesis process. Great to learn the use of heuristic algorithms. Thank you professor, your explanations were great.

The solutions for answer which are incorrect should be provided.So that we are able to know what mistake we did.Content wise and questions quality wise ;this course is perfect.

Suggestion: In some questions of CDC and SDC the correct options didn't contained all the literals. This is an advance level course.

Excellent course in VLSI tools design, that covers most of the basic algorithms and basic idea of tools.

The course delivers whatever was promised. Assignments really were top notch.
By Prachi S•
excellent course, great instructor, includes practical assignments
By Vallabh B•
The course is pretty good taught me a lot about CAD.
By Nithin R K•
It was good experience to learn vlsi design

Somewhat hard to follow the assignments. I wish there was much building of skills than application on harder examples.

this cour is perfect but i dont have time for a moment

This course should be titled "Fundamental Algorithms for digital circuit CAD". It has nothing at all to do with VLSI and none of the tools you get access to will be practical for you to use for large exampls. If you seek to understand how digital circuits get synthesized, how the functional descriptions are broken down into elements and then reconstructed as gates and circuit elements, this has some of the basics. The tools you get access to are old, with primitive user interfaces, suitable only for very simple examples. This is ok for the purpose of understanding the basics if you are interested in the internals of such tools. The course will not help you with modern VLSI design with modern EDA tools, if that is what you are looking for. Coursera seems currently to have nothing for EDA design of ASICs.
