The Number 1 VLSI Design Guide-Now Fully Updated for IP-Based Design and the Newest Technologies Modern VLSI Design, Fourth Edition, offers authoritative, up-to-the-minute guidance for the entire VLSI design process-from architecture and logic design through layout and packaging. Wayne Wolf has systematically updated his award-winning book for today's newest technologies and highest-value design techniques. Wolf introduces powerful new IP-based design techniques at all three levels: gates, subsystems, and architecture. He presents deeper coverage of logic design fundamentals, clocking and timing, and much more. No other VLSI guide presents as much up-to-date information for maximizing performance, minimizing power utilization, and achieving rapid design turnarounds.
Coverage includes * All-new material on IP-based design * Extensive new coverage of networks-on-chips * New coverage of using FPGA fabrics to improve design flexibility * New material on image sensors, busses, Rent's Rule, pipelining, and more * Updated VLSI technology parameters reflecting the latest advances * Revised descriptions of HDLs and other VLSI design tools * Advanced techniques for overcoming bottlenecks and reducing crosstalk * Low-power design techniques for enhancing reliability and extending battery life * Testing solutions for every level of abstraction, from gates to architecture * Revamped end-of-chapter problems that fully reflect today's VLSI design challengesWolf introduces a top-down, systematic design methodology that begins with high-level models, extends from circuits to architecture, and facilitates effective testing. Along the way, he brings together all the skills VLSI design professionals will need to create tomorrow's state-of-the-art devices.
