Course Description
Very-large-scale integration (VLSI) is the process of creating an integrated circuit (IC) by combining thousands of transistors into a single chip. In other words, an IC has many transistors on one chip, while VLSI has very many transistors on one chip. A modern VLSI chip is a complex beast with billions of transistors, millions of logic gates deployed for computation and control.
