The microelectronics educational contents of schools in the developing nations lag behind those in the developed nations. From design synthesis to characterization of microchips, these schools lack the equipment and computer aided design (CAD) tools required for quality VLSI (very large scale integration) education. For sustainable economic prosperity, development of the semiconductor industry is important owing to its huge global impacts. The abilities of these nations to train 21st century…
