Kunal Ghosh, co-founder and Director of VLSI System Design (VSD) Corp. Pvt. Ltd., has been at the forefront of VLSI education, leveraging a cloud-based platform to train over 40,000 engineers across the globe in 40+ languages. Working with prestigious Indian institutes like IIT Madras, Bombay, and Guwahati, VSD has facilitated Faculty Development Programs, benefiting around 6000+ students domestically. The VSD community boasts the largest collection of free, open-source analog, digital, and mixed-signal IPs using Skywater 130nm technology, contributing to over 20+ tape outs. Before establishing VSD in 2017, Ghosh led several technical roles at Qualcomm's Test-chip business unit, focusing on Physical design and STA flow development of 28nm, 16nm test-chips. He also served as Lead Sales Application engineer for Cadence's Tempus STA tool. A postgraduate in Electrical Engineering from IIT Bombay, Ghosh specialized in VLSI Design & Nanotechnology. He worked as a Research Assistant on projects such as "Sub-100nm optimization using Electron Beam Lithography" and characterization of RTL generated from Cto-RTL AHIR compiler. These projects aimed at optimizing electron beam lithography tools, developing sub-100nm MOSFETs, and characterizing RTL for power, performance, and area using standard ASIC tool chains
