About this book


Recent advances in microelectronics technology have led to the increasing utilisation of integrated circuit components in virtually all sectors of society. One particular component is the Application-Specific Integrated Circuit, ASIC, which is employed in such diverse products as washing machines, car engines and mainframe computers. The successful use of ASICs in products is due to the exploitation of computer-aided design tools, especially automatic synthesis tools, which reduce design time and cost. This book reviews the state-of-the-art in logic synthesis techniques, which have recently been developed for ASIC components.
