Want to get a head start to your VLSI design career?
For a relatively fresh (0-3 years) design engineer :
You may often be awed or sometimes puzzled as to what exactly are the various stages in chip design followed in the industry. How do the specifications translate into a physical chip? Where does your part of the design flow get its inputs from and where are its outputs used? Where does your part fit into the chip design jigsaw puzzle. A basic sound understanding & a holistic view of the complete VLSI chip design flow is what is required here. Additionally, knowing this helps one in planning one's design career path - which design aspect should I specialize in?
As a design engineer experienced in a certain aspect - be it logic simulation or physical placement or verification or others:
How does a design decision made in one part of the flow impact your design part and vice versa? To be an efficient and effective design engineer, it is essential to have an understanding of the complete design flow. It surely does diminish the chances of missing out on your First Time Silicon Success!
As a chip design Program Manager, Customer support, Business Development:
Needless to say here, one would require a sound know-how of the complete design flow to be effective in these roles.
