Semiconductor Integrated Circuit Layout Design



Basics

What are Semiconductor Integrated Circuit (SIC)?

Semiconductor Integrated Circuit means a product having transistors and other circuitry elements, which are inseparably formed on or inside a semiconductor material or an insulating material and designed to perform an electronic circuitry function.

Sometimes called chips or microchips, these IC chips form an integral part of every electronic device like computers, television, electronic watch, mobile phones etc.

Layout-Design of an SIC

The layout-design of a semiconductor integrated circuit means a layout of the arrangement of transistors and other circuitry elements expressed on a semiconductor integrated circuit.

Above is the layout design of the First Ever Layout-design application filed in the India in 2015. Till present, two Certificates have been issued by the SICLD Registry India, one each by Bharat Electronic Ltd. (BEL) and Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

Success Story

The certificate of 50-60 GHz Sub Harmonic IQ Mixer was issued to M/s. Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) on 24th May, 2016 by the Semiconductor Integrated Circuits Layout Design Registry.

TRANSMIT - RECEIVE MODULE

An Advance Technology from ISRO

Space Applications Centre of ISRO has developed a transmit receive(TR) modüle which is very useful as both transmit and receive chains are accommodated in a sinele small housing for achieving higher gain. This MMIC based TR moo is flown in Radar Imaging Sa elite (RISAT- 1). It is a bullding block for radars and finds its applications in weather radar, ground based radar ctc.. Each TR Module consists of a low power TR switch to select either of the transmit or receive paths. It has a weight of 420 gms. ISRO offers to license this technology of Transmit Receive Module to industries with adequate experience and facilities. Enterprises interested in obtaining knowhow may write giving details of their present activities, infrastructure and facilities to us.
