Special Manpower Development Program for Chip to System Design (SMDP-C2SD)is the third phase of SMDP which has been initiated by Ministry Of Electronics & Information Technology(MeitY), Govt. of India .

Under this program, various EDA tools for establishing well equipped VLSI Design laboratory were centrally purchased and distributed to several institutes, including the IITs and NITs.Our institute is one of the participating institutes (PIs) under the Resource centre(RC),IIT Madras.

Primary Objective of this project is to  train special manpower in the area of VLSI Design and related EDA tools at undergratuate,Master's and doctoral level in VLSI design/Microelectronics.
