Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Low Power Design Essentials is the first book at the graduate level to address the design of low power digital integrated circuits in an orderly and logical fashion. As such, this book will be of interest to students as well as professionals. In addition to taking an educational approach towards low-power design, the book also presents an integrated methodology to address power at all layers of the design hierarchy. Finally, the text also explains the main roadblocks as well as the physical limits in further energy scaling.
This book is based on the extensive amount of teaching the author has carried out both at universities and companies worldwide. All chapters have been drawn up specifically for self-study. Different levels of understanding are included within each chapter. All chapters begin with elementary material and almost all contain advanced material.
A unique format is used for this book. Rather than the traditional approach of a lengthy continuous text interspersed with some figures, it uses the reverse approach of dominant graphics with accompanying suppplemental text. It is understood that a single figure does a lot more to convey a message than a page of text.
It is hoped that this innovative format provides a better structure for learning the essential topics in low power design.

Format: Hardcover
This book provides excellent coverage of low power design concepts and techniques for VLSI technologies. The author presents the subject with novel and contemporary treatments. The format and references are very useful for instructors. The release of the book is timely in the field.
