About this book


Physical Design Essentials explains the basic steps required in the physical design of Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs). The subject matter presentation follows the industry-common ASIC physical design flow.

Topics covered include:

  • Basic standard cell design, transistor-sizing, and layout styles
  • Linear, non-linear, and polynomial characterization
  • Physical design constraints and floor planning styles
  • Algorithms used for placement
  • Clock tree synthesis
  • Algorithms used for global and detailed routing
  • Parasitic extraction
  • Functional timing and physical methods of verification
  • Testing Techniques

Physical Design Essentials is written for professional design engineers who need to be conversant with all aspects of ASIC design implementation: device processes, library development, place-and-route algorithms, verification, and testing.
