I want to pursue an MS degree in Electrical & Computer Engineering with a specialization in digital VLSI design as it will help me realize my goal of becoming a chip design engineer with the versatility to handle front-end and back-end VLSI designs in the near future. I am passionate about innovating high performance and low power VLSI systems and find the process involved in generating new digital logic techniques to be extremely challenging and fulfilling.
My under-graduate program in Electronics & Communication at Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad covered various core topics namely VLSI Design, Electronic Devices & Circuits, Pulse & Digital Circuits, Microprocessors & Microcontrollers etc. This was in conjunction with the lab courses on Digital Signal Processing, Analog & Digital IC applications and Microprocessors & Microcontrollers. Furthermore, the work I did during the senior year in designing & simulating the analog and digital integrated circuits using Pspice and Xilinx ISE software provided me with a good overview of VLSI design, synthesis and implementation processes. The well thought-out course structure enabled the smooth transition between theoretical and practical courses and helped me score 72.54 % with distinction.
The skills that I have developed so far have motivated me to work on a project that underscored the importance of digital VLSI in the evolution of memory chips and microcontrollers. Our team successfully implemented the major project “Aid for blind people using image processing” which involved developing a navigating aid using functions of OpenCV library for real-time image processing. With the familiarity gained on microcontroller architecture and its interfacing with various modules such as keyboard, USART using assembly language and C programming in keil, we interfaced the 32-bit ARM9 with LCD display, Analog-to-Digital & Digital-to-Analog Converters, Universal Serial Bus, UART and RS232 serial...
