Centre for Nanoelectronics and VLSI Design

The Centre for Nanoelectronics and VLSI Design (CNVD) was established in March 2020. The centre mainly focuses on the design, modeling and fabrication of nano-scaled devices and integrated circuits for the industrial and consumer electronics applications.

The major research areas of the centre are:

  • Low power digital VLSI circuits
  • Analog integrated circuits
  • MEMS and CMOS integration
  • Nanoscale devices and circuits
  • Hardware security
  • FPGA based systems
