The demand for skilled ASIC and System-on-a-Chip (SoC) designers is soaring, as these devices find new applications everywhere airplanes to toasters. This book takes professionals step-by-step through the entire process of designing ASICs and SoCs, illuminating today's most important trends and techniques -- and tomorrow's.KEY TOPICS:The authors focus on the practical aspects of ASIC and SoC design, covering key "on-the-job" issues every designer is likely to face. They emphasize fundamental design/verification principles and techniques rather than specific tools, and walks professional step-by-step through multiple application case studies. The book will be especially valuable to professionals migrating to SoCs, which go beyond ASICs to place nearly all hardware components on a single chip, but present significant challenges to designers.MARKET:For every engineer responsible for designing ASICs or SoCs. Previously announced in June 2002 catalog.
