Very large-scale integration (VLSI) is the procedure of growing an built-in circuit (IC) by way of combining thousands and thousands or billions of MOS transistors onto a single chip. VLSI began in the Seventies when MOS built-in circuit (Metal Oxide Semiconductor) chips had been developed and then broadly adopted, enabling complicated semiconductor and telecommunication technologies. The microprocessor and reminiscence chips are VLSI devices.

Before the introduction of VLSI technology, most ICs had a restrained set of features they should perform. An electronic circuit would possibly consist of a CPU, ROM, RAM and different glue logic. VLSI permits IC designers to add all of these into one chip.

Structured VLSI graph is a modular methodology originated by means of Carver Mead and Lynn Conway for saving microchip vicinity by minimizing the interconnect fabric area. This is received by using repetitive association of rectangular macro blocks which can be interconnected the use of wiring by using abutment. An example is partitioning the graph of an adder into a row of equal bit slices cells. In complex designs this structuring can also be achieved by means of hierarchical nesting.

Structured VLSI design had been popular in the early 1980s, however lost its reputation later[citation needed] because of the introduction of placement and routing tools wasting a lot of area with the aid of routing, which is tolerated because of the development of Moore's Law. When introducing the hardware description language KARL in the mid-1970s, Reiner Hartenstein coined the time period "structured VLSI design" (originally as "structured LSI design"), echoing Edsger Dijkstra's structured programming method by means of process nesting to keep away from chaotic spaghetti-structured programs. 

Here are some of the universities that I have shortlisted

The University of Freiberg
Hamburg university of technology
RWTH- Aachen
Technical University - Dresden.

VLSI is covered under the branch- microelectronics.The system in Germany is such that if you are doing your masters in electronics and communications, you have to decide the electives, thus any electronics masters degree, you can elect VLSI subjects.

Hope it helps! Thanks
