Laboratories

Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) is the technology of creating integrated circuits by combining thousands of transistors into a single chip. This era began in earlier 70s when complex semiconductors and communication technologies were being developed. This field involves packing more and more logic devices into smaller and smaller areas. The complex circuits that would have taken full of circuit board can now be fitted into a small space of few millimeters.
