VLSI and Computer Architecture

Hardware and software issues from the circuit to the system have three main foci: Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) circuits and systems, computer architecture, and computer security. VLSI includes circuits and systems design, systems on chip, testing, computer-aided design and synthesis. Computer architecture deals with the study and design of computer systems to meet functional, cost, and performance requirements of applications.
