A Complete and accessible introduction to modern digital VLSI design

Clearly Written for both classroom use and self-stuwritten and drawings, John. Uyemura's comprehensive introduction to modern VLSI design makes the subject accessible to students and professionals from a broad range of backgrounds, such s electrical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science. The text presents CMOS logic circuits, fabrication, and layout in a cohesive manner that links the material together with the system-level considerations.

  • Throughout, the text emphasizes the top-down design procedure used to engineer complex VLSI chips, which enables readers to see the tradeoffs that occur at all levels of the design hierarchy. You'll learn how to compare different solutions to a CMOS logic implementation problem, and how the choices affect the overall outcome.


  • Presents a comprehensive treatment of modern VLSI design.

  • An accompanying CD-ROM containing student versions of Verilog® and SPICE simulators that can be run on a Windows® PC operating system.

  • Includes an easy-to-read, self-contained chapter on Verilog® HDL.

  • Many examples address system-level considerations.

  • Numerous problems throughout the text illustrate key concepts.

  • Demonstrates the interaction of system-level design with lower-level considerations of switching speed and silicon real estate.

  • Covers the design of high-speed CMOS logic circuits.


Uyemura (engineering, Georgia Inst. of Tech.) presents this text on the foundations of digital CMOS VLSI systems design, suitable for use in a first year, senior-level course in the fields of electrical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science. It is also suitable to use in a first-year graduate course supplemented with journal articles, and for self-study by students and professionals. No previous background in VLSI or CMOS is required, but the reader is assumed to have taken the core curriculum in electrical or computer engineering, including courses in digital logic design and electrical circuit analysis. An accompanying CD-ROM contains student versions of Verilog and SPICE simulators than can be run on a Windows PC operating system. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
