Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur

Welcome to the home of Microelectronics and VLSI. Research interests of faculty members includes Spintronics, Semiconductor Device Modeling and Simulation, Solid State Devices, Organic Electronics, Transparent Semiconductors and Photovoltaic systems, VLSI technology including analog/mixed signal circuit design, VLSI Circuit Design and RFID Tag Chip Design.

The department has excellent research laboratories and support facilities in the area of Microelectronics and VLSI. Micro fabrication lab with basic semiconductor processing capability for silicon as well as organic material based devices (OLED, organic solar cells, OTFT, etc.), Solar cell characterization lab, photo mask making facility, Semiconductor device lab with capability to synthesize organic materials for organic LEDs and solar cells, Integrated circuits simulation and VLSI design laboratory with all the modern EDA tools, (e.g. CADENCE, SYNOPSYS, Mentor Graphics, MAGMA, COWARE, XILINX based gate array design & programming tools, etc.) and adequate hardware in the form of servers and good number of workstations for research and course work. Three teaching/training labs have been developed to train students in areas related to organic electronics. These are the organic electronics processing lab, the organic electronics characterization lab and the organic electronics simulation lab.
