A review of the device and circuit design complexity and limitations for VLSI is presented. VLSI device performance will be limited by second order device effects, interconnection line delay and current density and chip power dissipation. The complexity of VLSI circuit\ud design will require hierarchical structured design methodology with special consideration of testability and more emphasis on redundancy. New organizations of logic function architectures and smart memories\ud will evolve to take advantage of the topological properties of the VLSI silicon technology
