VLSI Physical Design Automation

  • Naveed A. Sherwani


From the beginning of its era in the 1960’s, Integrated Circuit (IC) fabrication technology has evolved from being able to integrate a few transistors in Small Scale Integration (SSI) to today’s integration of well over a million transistors in Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI). In a period of three decades, there have been four generations of IC’s with the number of transistors on a single chip growing from 30 to more than 3 million. This rapid growth in integration technology has been made possible by the automation of the various steps involved in design and fabrication of VLSI chips.
