Since I am a student of VLSI and Computer Engineering, my course structure was designed by keeping in mind subjects of both the fields. This course provided me a bridge between VLSI field and Computer Science field. Since I joined this course after it was completed, I could not complete the programming assignments. I have downloaded all the video lectures but forgot to download assignments. If anyone has those assignments, can u please forward me those, it would be very helpful to me.

Hello Everyone, I am currently enrolled in this course but I don't think this course will start anytime soon. So It would be helpful if anyone could provide me video lectures and assignments to my email id: Karthik.kpn1@gmail.com. It would be of great help. Thanks,

A big thanks to professor Rutenbar for this wonderful and neatly arranged course. I must admit I had an informal exposure to VLSI but the professor made all of the content so easy to understand that you don't really need prior exposure to the subject. This course has given me a whole new perspective on the work going on in the VLSI industry and I am thankful to the course providers for that. I definitely recommend this course to anyone who is curious about how those chips having a million gates are actually designed and to anyone who is ready to learn a whole new bunch of cool algorithms and data structures.

Wow, this is a great course. The course is about the type of software it takes to make modern processors (not quantum processes). From logic to layout, while I don't plan to build my own ICs i join to learn some cool algorithms. Around the first half is about computational boolean algebra which is also very useful in AI (which I try to learn). The next half is about technology mapping, gate placing, wire routing and timing analysis. Areas with many hard problems and interesting heuristics. Instead of playing with toy problems like other courses you get to work on industry level problems. NICE ;-) If your following the mastery track, you will do 4 programming assignments in a language of your choosing. The programming assignments is fairly easy but also very educational. I liked them a lot. Only point of criticism is that you only have 1 try on the homework, which I feel is not optimal for learning.
