Product Description

From the Back Cover


Techniques for the latest deep-submicron, mega-chip projects.

The start-to-finish, state-of-the-art guide to VLSI design.

VLSI design is system design.

To build high-performance, cost-effective ICs, you must understand all aspects of digital design, from planning and layout to fabrication and packaging. Modern VLSI Design, Second Edition: Systems on Silicon is a comprehensive, "bottom-up" guide to the entire VLSI design process. Emphasizing CMOS, it focuses on the crucial challenges of deep-submicron VLSI design.

Coverage includes:

  • Devices and layouts: transistor structures and characteristics, wires, vias, parasitics, design rules, layout design and tools.
  • Logic gates and combinational logic networks, including interconnect delay and crosstalk.
  • Sequential machines and sequential system design.
  • Subsystem design, including high-speed adders, multipliers, ROM, SRAM, SRAM, PGAs and PLAs.
  • Floorplanning, clock distribution and power distribution.
  • Architecture design, including VHDL, scheduling, function unit selection, power and testability.
  • Chip design methodologies, CAD systems and algorithms.

Modern VLSI Design, Second Edition: Systems on Silicon offers a complete yet accessible introduction to crosstalk models and optimization. It covers minimizing power consumption at every level of abstraction, from circuits to architecture and new insights into design-for-testability techniques that maximize quality despite quicker turnarounds. It also presents detailed coverage of the algorithms underlying contemporary VLSI computer-aided design software, so designers can understand their tools no matter which ones they choose. Whether you're a practicing professional or advanced student, this is the sophisticated VLSI design knowledge you need to succeed with tomorrow's most challenging projects.

HASH(0x984aa780) out of 5 stars an extremely poorly written text. 24 Oct. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I used this textbook for a course in VLSI. Never have I read a book in its second edition with so many errors, in addition to such an unclear presentation of material. There are huge swaths of important material on physical characteristics of semiconductors that is either missing or wrong. I would not recommend this book for use in a course in VLSI. Instead, I would recommend Jan Rabaey's text as a much better alternative.

HASH(0x986035a0) out of 5 stars VERY unclear and confusing!! 1 May 2001
By TheCaptain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is very poorly written, unclear, and confusing! It skips a whole lot of steps in every example it provides, pulling numbers, measurements, and dimensions out of thin air, without explaining where they came from. Even worse, it does not bother to explain the steps it is following, just a bunch of formulas with no explaination as to where they came from or where the numbers came from.
I strongly recommend that you DO NOT buy this book!

HASH(0x986035c4) out of 5 stars Quite a nice book for beginner 23 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
explanatory, but not much in detail.
Perhaps, lack of hands on project, and only a bit of update from the previos book.
Better if the design figures are in color.
