There are lots of great material on Systems Design subject in the internet, buts its always a challenge to figure out a ready list of top books on Systems Design that one can refer to immediately. Even though online materials are good, but nothing can beat the depth of coverage that a book can offer. Hence, we researched the list of Systems Design books which are used by students worldwide and came up with top 10 Book Recommendations on Systems Design subject. These books can be used as a great starting point for anyone studying Systems Design and can also be used as a ready reference for Under-Graduate and Post-Graduate programs.
Most of these Systems Design books are also in the best-seller lists in Amazon website. We have added a brief description of these best books and have also included direct links to Amazon site (as affiliate). This allows anyone to directly visit the site and order printed copies of these best books.
Here is the full list of best reference books on Systems Design.
|1. “Digital Integrated Circuits” by Jan M. Rabaey
Book Review: This book is very good in terms of content thereby bridging the gap between circuit perspective and system perspective of digital integrated circuit design. The book maintains a consistent and logical flow of subject matter throughout. The book also addresses the most competitive and significant industry topics like interconnect impact, low power design, timing and clocking issues, design methodologies, design automation effect and so on. This book is suitable for readers interested in digital circuit design.
|2. “Application Specific Integrated Circuits” by M.J.S. Smith
Book Review: This book describes the latest methods and technologies in the field of VLSI systems design. The book describes the technology of ASIC design using commercial tools and predesigned cell libraries which is the fastest and most cost effective method of IC design.
The book also covers semicustom and programmable ASIC types. The others topics included in the book are logic synthesis, simulation, physical design partitioning, floorplanning, placement and routing.
|3. “VLSI Digital Signal Processing” by Vijay K. Madisetti
Book Review: This book demonstrates the design and application of programmable digital signal processors, formal specification, optimization of signal processing architectures and circuits. The book also presents high level synthesis of DSP architectures, detailed analysis of application specific integrated circuits, scheduling, allocation and assignment algorithms for multiple processor DSP and deals with hardware and software design issues in DSP. The book includes both programmable and dedicated digital signal processors and optimization methods that make use of computer aided design techniques.
|4. “VLSI-Soc: Forward-Looking Trends in IC and Systems Design” by Reis Atienza Alonso Ayala|
|5. “Embedded Systems Design Based on Formal Models of Computation” by Ivan Radojevic, Zoran Salcic|
|6. “Membrane Technology and Engineering for Water Purification: Application, Systems Design and Operation ” by SINGH Rajindar Singh|
|7. “Design of Dependable Computing Systems” by Gilles Motet G Motet J C Geffroy Motet Geffroy|
|8. “Embedded Systems Handbook: Embedded Systems Design and Verification” by Richard Zurawski|
|9. “Database Systems : Concepts, Design and Applications” by Singh|
|10. “Database Systems: Models, Languages, Design and Application Programming : Models,Languages,Design and Application Programming” by Ramez Elmasri|
