VLSI is taking on my nerves. Today, when Sir went on to name some half a dozen books one after another (what else do you expect from an instructor himself pursuing his PG in VLSI) I couldn’t help annotating how it sounded more like a scene straight from a Doctor’s clinic - You can take A, & if this isn’t available go for B & referring C as well as D would be a good idea it will definitely build your concepts (ooohh really..!!), as E might be a bit difficult to grasp at your undergrad level ( as if it’s a strong medicine to be taken only for extreme cases or should I say extreme cases interested in VLSI).
I could hardly manage covering topics from a single book forget about the so many names I can’t even remember (and frankly don’t even bother to).Naah wait, I do remember one of it as Digital Integrated Circuit which I abbreviated instantaneously as my engineering mind churned & than on realizing how offensive it can be (again my engineering mind) completely scratched it off from my copy..!!
So, to avoid my usual finger-crossed-not-me-today situation during the questioning round of lecture, a unique feature of VLSI class, I decided to start with at least ‘the only one’ book of VLSI till I closed it back in 5 minutes, thanks to the loud blaring Rajasthani noise (sorry, I meant song but decided not to backspace as it naturally came on) from a nearby home. Quite unfair, in a place mid of no where, surrounded only by a college & nearby hostels a hostel is being disturbed by some residential group (minorities) that too at midnight ( & it continued for 1 complete week later).It only confirms my belief that this place has its own set of aberrant rules. Though , I did manage to escape it , thanks to my headphones & linkin park .Look my title did scream that it’s none of your interest, and yes God save me & my VLSI this sem.
