    Advances in electronics technology have led to convergence of
    communication, computing, and sensor technologies onto a single
    silicon substrate. Unprecedented revolution in micro, nano and
    molecular electronics has brought about paradigm shifts in design
    approaches and novel applications of VLSI and Embedded systems.
    Emergence of Network-on-Chip (NoC) technologies for high-performance
    System-on-Chip (SoC) design has only added to the challenges and
    opportunities. India, an emerging world economy and a well-established
    leader in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has an
    ambitious Nation Technology Roadmap to take on the challenges and tap
    the opportunities in the rapidly expanding arena of VLSI Design and
    Embedded Systems. Chip Focus 2006, the first National Conference on
    VLSI Design & Embedded Systems received massive response exceeding 700
    participants. We received yet better response during 2007 & 2008.
    Thanks to their encouraging feedback and constructive suggestions that
    Chip Focus has become a prominent calendar event for the students
    pursuing their interests in VLSI Design & Embedded Systems
    What is VLSI?
    VLSI stands for "Very Large Scale Integration". This is the field
    which involves packing more and more logic devices into smaller and
    smaller areas.Thanks to VLSI, circuits that would have taken boardfuls
    of space can now be put into a small space few millimeters across!
    This has opened up a big opportunity to do things that were not
    possible before. VLSI circuits are everywhere ... your computer, your
    car, your brand new state-of-the-art digital camera, the cell-phones,
    and what have you. All this involves a lot of expertise on many fronts
    within the same field, VLSI has been around for a long time, there is
    nothing new about it ... but as a side effect of advances in the world
    of computers, there has been a dramatic proliferation of tools that
    can be used to design VLSI circuits. Alongside, obeying Moore's law,
    the capability of an IC has increased exponentially over the years, in
    terms of computation power, utilisation of available area, yield. The
    combined effect of these two advances is that people can now put
    diverse functionality into the IC's, opening up new frontiers.
    Examples are embedded systems, where intelligent devices are put
    inside everyday objects, and ubiquitous computing where small
    computing devices proliferate to such an extent that even the shoes
    you wear may actually do something useful like monitoring your
    heartbeats! These two fields are kinda related, and getting into their
    description can easily lead to another article
    Program Outline
    The 2-day conference would be marked by expert lectures, tutorials and
    workshops on Electronics Design Automation (EDA) tools and Embedded
    System Programming. Some of the key issues that would dominate the
    conference sessions are:

    * Challenges, opportunities and future roadmap in Nanoelectronics
    * Bottlenecks in Gigascale Design and Manufacturing
    * Low power and high speed processor and memory design
    * System on Chip (SoC) Design - Analog-digital-RF mixed signal
    * Network on Chip (NoC) Design and Sensor networks
    * Emerging process technologies and design shifts
    * EDA tool issues in deep sub-micron design
    * Optics inside chips – emerging trends and techniques
    * Embedded systems - Hardware-software co-design and co-
    * FPGA/ASIC based embedded system design (simulation & synthesis)
    * Embedded Systems for DSP, communications, digital imaging
    * Programmable devices


    * Participants are requested to reach ten minute before to prevent
    * Participants are require to carry the receipt of the
    registration along.
    * Participants are requested to carry the Identification cards of
    the Institutes/Organizations they belong to.
    * Participants are requested to show their id card on demand.
    * Participants are requested to switched off (not in vibration)
    their mobile phones.
    * Please maintain silence in auditorium.
    * The kits inclusive of lunch coupons can be collected from the
    Institute on producing the receipt of registration.

    Who can Attend?
    The conference is open to engineering (UG, PG), MCA students, research
    scholars, academics, scientists and industrial professionals.

    The objective of CHIP FOCUS 2009 (The 4th National Seminar on VLSI
    Design & Embedded Systems) is to seek convergence of eminent scholars
    from across the country on a common platform to discuss the key issues
    and trends in VLSI Design and Embedded Systems. This would enable our
    young scientists and engineers to gain from the views of the
    visionaries and get directions from them to discover new horizons and
    opportunities for research, innovation and growth
