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.
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)
