The VLSI Systems Center at Ben-Gurion University was founded in 1998. Since then the VLSI Systems C enter has become a major research entity in Israel, recognized as the National CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) Research Center in the country and as a leader in the field.
Our main contributions are in the area of mixed-signal integrated circuit with emphasis on CMOS image sensors, low-power design and power systems on a chip. The center has made significant contributions to analog/mixed-signal research and has been involved in projects with major Israeli companies such as Elbit, SCD, El-Op, Scitex, Tower, Alter, Zoran and more others, and government offices.
Since its establishment, the VLSI Systems Center has graduated over 1000 undergraduate and graduate students that are highly sought after by companies in the field. The center has become recognized in conducting research work in collaboration with industry and in providing relevant and timely training to students, both graduate and undergraduates.
