VLSI carrer

maven.vlsi
I found a useful group ,I just want to share it with you .This group is mainly for the fresh engineers who want to start thier career in the semiconductor industry and become a great VLSI engineer. By being a member of this group you can receive all the postings from blogs VLSI Career and Functional Verification which is really informative.


U can visit "Fresh VLSI" Google group which can step our career into the next level.

    also join engineer societies like the IEEE.

    They have whole conferences on VLSI. You can buy the printed proceedings on the IEEE book site. I attended a WSI (wafer-scale integration, the step above VLSI) conference in SF in the 80's. Was a trip. Besides having fun stopping at the redwoods parks on the way, there were some neat innovations.

    One was a 'flow thru' synthetic aperture radar processor: data flowed in the top wafer via external conx. 3000 solder bumps then connected the top 6" wafer to the wafer below, on down 10 or so to the output.

    The whole thing was cooled with cooled with liquid nitrogen; one pentium can put out 45 watts or more. and a wafer is normally sliced up into multiple pentiums so you can imagine the heat the stack produced.
