Synthesis and Optimization of Digital Circuits

Giovanni De Micheli

Synthesis and Optimization of Digital Circuits offers a modern, up-to-date look at computer aided design (CAD) of very large scale integration (VLSI) circuits. In particular, this book covers techniques for synthesis and optimization of digital circuits at the architectural and logic levels, i.e., the generation of performance- and/or area-optimal circuit representations from models in hardware description languages. The book provides a thorough explanation of synthesis and optimization algorithms accompanied by a sound mathematical formulation and a unified notation.
