Book Description

August 25, 2000 0471360902 978-0471360902 1
A cutting-edge guide to the theory and practice of high-speed digital system design

An understanding of high-speed interconnect phenomena is essential for digital designers who must deal with the challenges posed by the ever-increasing operating speeds of today's microprocessors. This book provides a much-needed, practical guide to the state of the art of modern digital system design, combining easily accessible explanations with immensely useful problem-solving strategies. Written by three leading Intel engineers, High-Speed Digital System Design clarifies difficult and often neglected topics involving the effects of high frequencies on digital buses and presents a variety of proven techniques and application examples. Extensive appendices, formulas, modeling techniques as well as hundreds of figures are also provided.
Coverage includes:
* A thorough introduction to the digital aspects of basic transmission line theory
* Crosstalk and nonideal transmission line effects on signal quality and timings
* The impact of packages, vias, and connectors on signal integrity
* The effects of nonideal return current paths, high frequency power delivery, and simultaneous switching noise
* Explanations of how driving circuit characteristics affect the quality of the digital signal
* Digital timing analysis at the system level that incorporates high-speed signaling effects into timing budgets
* Methodologies for designing high-speed buses and handling the very large number of variables that affect interconnect performance
* Radiated emission problems and how to minimize system noise
* The practical aspects of making measurements in high-speed digital systems

Editorial Reviews

Review

"...an excellent guidebook for interconnect design...this very valuable work is highly recommended for design engineers and recent graduates struggling to transition from theory to real-world design." (Choice, Vol. 38, No. 8, April 2001)

"This is an excellent book for anyone who has basic circuit theory knowledge.... It is a recommended book for all academic engineering libraries and would, also, be useful for the practicing engineer." (E-Streams, Vol. 4, No. 8, August 2001)

4.0 out of 5 stars OK, but if you get 1 HSDD book, get Johnson instead. February 8, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This book is OK. Does exactly what it says on the tin.
I was dismayed that Hall et al kept referring to Johnson & Graham's High Speed Digital Design instead of explaining material themselves.
I own both (Johnson and Hall). I prefer Johnson. But that's my preference ....

5.0 out of 5 stars High Speed Digital System Design - Excellent Book September 26, 2000
Format:Hardcover
This book is the most comprehensive book I have seen in the area of system bus design. It focuses largely on signal integrity issues that must be solved in modern high speed designs. It includes much practical information that can be directly applied to design, as well as a sufficient amount of theory so that the the reader can understand the fundamental issues assosiated with high speed signal propagation. It also covers topics not included inother texts, such as high speed measuremet techniques, design methodology and EMI. It is highly understandable and well organized.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent... even too much! June 28, 2001
Format:Hardcover
This book gives an excellent review of transmission theory, with real-world examples from the PCB industry. Also several useful rules of thumbs are provided. The design methodology presented is really focussed on computer motherboards and board-CPU codesign and does not always applies to other kind of high-speed designs. Moreover, the techniques proposed in the book are sometime excessive for small teams.

3.0 out of 5 stars Save your money. Not a winner February 3, 2009
By orgusa
Format:Hardcover
I was nicer in my previous review. Ok, I really got nothing from this book. It was really fragmented, not well organized, and didn't cover differential impedances. It just kept saying - you really need a software field solver. Well, I can't afford Ansoft, so this book has neither the math or the down to earth info that I need.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dissappointing. Good subject, poorly covered. August 13, 2003
Format:Hardcover
I was very disappointed with this book. It covers a very useful subject, but it is not well written. Almost every section was done better in other books covering the same material. It will be hard to prove how bad this book is, since on the surface everything seems to be there. However, as somebody who have read many books on this subject it was painful to read this one. It is more like a cut and paste job putting together well-known material without any new insights.
Despite its shortcomings, people who are not familiar with this subject can find this book remarkable and very useful.
Suggested Reading:
Howard Johnson's "Black Magic" and "Advanced Black Magic" books are definitely more pleasant to read while at a similar basic level. More advanced books on the same subjects include the classic work " Electromagnetic Compatibility" by Clayton Paul and of course most books on Microwave engineering. Brian Young's "Digital Signal Integrity"-although being less practical is a nicely done basic book discussing modeling and simulation of signal integrity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Check out - a great Interconnect book is finally here October 23, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This is an excellent book. Finally, here is a book, which clearly explains the fundamentals of transmission lines and their application in high speed digital designs. The theory is presented with great clarity, and with numerous supporting examples. I would strongly recommend this book to anybody designing high-speed digital interconnects at the system level.
