Lecture Slides (PPTs) on "Principles of VLSI Design" by Prof. Chintan Patel, UMBC: An Honors University In Maryland

 Dr. Patel was born in Amdavad, Gujarat, India. He received his Bachelors in Electronics Engineering from South Gujarat University in 1999. He received his M.S. in Computer Science from University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) in 2001. He joined the same department as a Lecturer, simultaneously pursuing his doctorate in Computer Engineering. He stepped out of student life in 2004 with his Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from UMBC, worked as a Research Assistant Professor till 2010 and now prowls the corridors of the ITE building as an Assistant Professor.
