Who this course is for:
- A VLSI engineer is interested in constructing the foundational elements of the standard communication interfaces frequently utilized in FPGA systems.
I currently serve as an instructor, where my responsibilities involve creating educational content for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. This content is designed to help them grasp the latest trends in VLSI (Very-Large-Scale Integration) technology. Prior to this role, I held the position of FPGA Developer Lead at one of India's premier Financial Technology companies. There, I led a team in the development of a cutting-edge High-Frequency Trading platform, leveraging Xilinx Alveo FPGA Cards.
Before my venture into the fintech industry, I dedicated three years as a VLSI Trainer at Mumbai University, India. Additionally, I spent one year as a Research Scientist at a renowned R&D center focused on Applied Electronic Research in India. During this time, I made significant contributions to projects such as the development of a Gradient Controller and a 64 MHz Receiver on FPGA for an indigenous MRI machine.
In my leisure hours, I have a passion for creating Udemy courses, and I have also collaborated with organizations like Larsen & Toubro Technology Services and Power International. In these collaborations, I played a pivotal role in designing various FPGA-based systems, including Simultaneous DAQ, Multi-channel Logic Analyzers, and DTS (Data Transmission Systems). My primary areas of expertise and interest revolve around Front End VLSI Design, System-on-Chip (SoC) development, and Chip Verification.
