VLSI Industry is divided into two popular branches viz. Design of System and Verification of the System. Verilog, VHDL remain the popular choices for most Design Engineers working in this domain. Although, preliminary functional verification can be carried out with Hardware Description Language. Hardware Description language possesses limited capabilities to perform code coverage analysis, Corner cases testing, etc and in fact sometimes it becomes impossible to perform this check with HDL's.
Hence Specialized Verification languages such as SystemVerilog start to become the primary choice for the verification of the design.
The SystemVerilog Object-oriented nature allows features such as Inheritance, Polymorphism, etc. adds capabilities of finding critical bugs inside design that HDL simply cannot find.
Verification is certainly more tricky and interesting as compared to designing a digital system and hence it consists of a large number of OOP's Constructs as opposed to Verilog. SystemVerilog is one of the most popular choices among Verification Engineer for Digital System Verification. This Journey will take you to the most common techniques used to write SystemVerilog Testbench and perform Verification of the Chips. The course is structured so that anyone who wishes to learn about System Verilog will able to understand everything. Finally, Practice is the key to become an expert.
Who this course is for:
- Engineer's wish to pursue carrer as Front End VLSI Engineer / FPGA Design Engineer / Verification Engineer / RTL Engineer
- Anyone wish to learn System Verilog with minimum efforts
- Anyone wish to start writing their own System Verilog Testbenches
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.
