Integrated Circuit & System (i-CAS) Lab  

The Integrated Circuit & System (i-CAS) Lab was established in 2015 under the financial assistance from Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology, Government of India through SMDP Chip-to-System Design project. It's one of the core labs in the department of Electronics & Communication Engineering at National Institute of Technology, Arunachal Pradesh, India. As the name suggests, this lab facilitates the commercial EDA tools like Cadence, Synopsys, Mentor Graphics and Xilinx, where extensive research is carried out on VLSI Circuits & Systems and Post-CMOS Technologies. Our goal is to initiate, steer, realize and contribute to the understanding of real life problems in circuit designs so as to come up with breakthroughs for comfortable and better tomorrow.
