LSI Design course at IIT Madras (1981-82, 1982-83, and 1983-84):

Along with Prof. K.V. Ramanathan, Mr. Dinesh Sharma and Dr. A.S. Vengurlekar a course on "Introduction to LSI Design" was offered to B.Tech and M.Tech students during Jul-Dec semesters of 1981-1982.

While others came only for 1 year, I was involved with the course for all the 3 years (1981-82, 1982-83 and 1983-84).

Selected students came to TIFR during the summer vacation for 3 months to do projects on LSI design and layouts. (8 M.Tech. and 2 B.Tech projects). Most of the projects were LSI designs based on TIFR's own CMOS Gate-Array. One of the chips, that was designed by a B.Tech. student, was realized on silicon through a foundry.
