Here is the listing 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.
