Technical Committee on VLSI (TCVLSI) is a constituency of IEEE Computer Society (IEEE-CS) that oversees various technical activities related to computer hardware, integrated circuit design, and software for computer hardware design.[2] TCVLSI is one of the 26 technical committees/councils of IEEE-CS that covers various specializations of computer science and computer engineering discipline.[3] IEEE-CS is the largest of the 39 societies of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).[4] The technical scope of TCVLSI covers the computer-aided design (CAD) or electronic design automation (EDA) techniques to facilitate the very-large-scale integration (VLSI) design process. The VLSI may include various types of circuits and systems, such as digital circuits and systems, analog circuits, as well as mixed-signal circuits and systems. The emphasis of TCVLSI widely covers the integrating the design, CAD, fabrication, application, and business aspects of VLSI, encompassing both hardware and software.


Membership in TCVLSI is open and free of charge to researchers, practitioners and students, and general prospective members are not required to be members of IEEE or IEEE Computer Society.[5] However, to serve on the executive committee, a member needs to belong to the IEEE Computer Society. The Chair of the TCVLSI is elected by the voting members of TCVLSI.[6] Other executive members of TCVLSI are appointed by the Chair.

Technical activities[edit]

The TCVLSI sponsors conferences, special sessions, and workshops for the IEEE-CS. TCVLSI also runs VLSI Circuits and Systems Letter, three times a year, which has many components including a very selective dissemination of quick papers, TCVLSI member news, upcoming conferences, workshops, call for papers, and funding opportunities of interest to members of TCVLSI. TCVLSI provides several student travel grants for the TCVLSI sponsored conferences. TCVLSI also sponsors best paper awards for the sponsored conferences.

TCVLSI awards[edit]

TCVLSI, IEEE-CS introduced the following awards from 2018.[7]

  • IEEE-CS-TCVLSI Best Ph.D. Dissertation/Thesis Award
  • IEEE-CS TCVLSI Mid-Career Research Achievement Award
  • IEEE-CS TCVLSI Distinguished Research Award
  • IEEE-CS TCVLSI Distinguished Leadership Award
  • IEEE-CS-TCVLSI Life-Time Achievement Award
  • IEEE-CS TCVLSI Outstanding Editor Award

IEEE VLSI Circuits and Systems Letter[edit]

The VLSI Circuits and Systems Letter (VCAL) is published four times a year,[8] and provides timely updates on science, engineering, and technologies as well as educations and opportunities related to VLSI circuits and systems.

The Editor-in-Chiefs are Anirban Sengupta, Indian Institute of Technology Indore, India[1] and Saraju P. Mohanty, University of North Texas, USA.


The current Chair is Anirban Sengupta, Indian Institute of Technology Indore, India.
