Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This book highlights the complex issues, tasks and skills that must be mastered by an IP designer, in order to design an optimized and robust digital circuit to solve a problem. The techniques and methodologies described can serve as a bridge between specifications that are known to the designer and RTL code that is final outcome, reducing significantly the time it takes to convert initial ideas and concepts into right-first-time silicon.� Coverage focuses on real problems rather than theoretical concepts, with an emphasis on design techniques across various aspects of chip-design.��
  • Describes techniques to help IP designers get it right the first time, creating designs optimized in terms of power, area and performance;
  • Focuses on practical aspects of chip design and minimizes theory;
  • Covers chip design in a consistent way, starting with basics and gradually developing advanced concepts, such as electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) design techniques and low-power design techniques such as dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS).

Format: Hardcover
This is a very good book which comprises of topics of interest for both students and professionals alike. The topics in the book have been careful selected to cover basic to intermediate to higher level of complexity, which are explained in a language easy for designers to understand. This book focuses on design facts/techniques that are used in almost every design aspect of System on Chip or standalone digital IPs and explains them from a practical application perspective. Design ideas from the book can directly be applied to any digital design being worked upon by any IC designer engineer.

Being a chip design engineer myself, I would recommend this book to all college students studying semiconductors and digital logic or to any person who is starting his/her career in digital design and to experienced designers who are looking for refreshing their design knowledge or just want to refer & understand design methods and techniques. Also, the book is a good reference for preparing for that interview you might have at the big semiconductor houses ;)

Go ahead... buy this book.

Format: Hardcover
One of the most interesting thing about this book is it is derived from FAQ questions on the Synopsys Manuals. most of the things is collection of questions and problems which have been reported on Synopsys Manuals. The chapter of metastability, Cross domain clocking etc are from any manual which one can access from solvenet(synopsys database).

these guys write up these books for exorbitant prices.... i dont think these books merit the price... no value addition
