This textbook for senior undergraduate and graduates covers all relevant aspects of radio frequency circuits, from fundamentals in electromagnetic transmission and signal propagation to the system communication theory behind the RF transceiver operation.
This book targets custom IC designers who are encountering variation issues in their designs, especially for modern process nodes at 45nm and below. It sets out state-of-the-art variation-aware design tools that will help them fix their problems efficiently.
This practical book provides a deeper understanding of the meaning of the enhancements contained in the new SystemVerilog 1800-2009 LRM. In particular, it discusses the context of practical deployment in hardware design projects.
The Art of Hardware Architecture highlights the complex issues, tasks and skills involved with digital circuit design. Coverage focuses on real problems rather than theoretical concepts, with an emphasis on design techniques across various aspects of chip-design.
This book covers state-of-the art techniques for high-level modeling and validation of complex hardware/software systems, including those with multicore architectures. It helps reader avoid time-consuming and error-prone validation methodologies.
This book presents the latest approaches to formal verification techniques to seamlessly integrate different formal verification methods within a single logical foundation. It outlines theoretical and practical issues and includes a range of case studies.
This book examines issues related to the test, diagnosis and fault-tolerance of Network on Chip-based systems. It provides research on the challenges to test, diagnose and tolerate faults in NoC-based systems and includes numerous test strategies.
This book presents new concepts, techniques and promising programming models for designing software for chips with 'many' (hundreds to thousands) processor cores. It serves as a single-source reference to the state-of-the-art in programming many-core chips.
This book examines the impact of register transfer level (RTL) design choices that may result in issues of testability, data synchronization across clock domains, synthesizability, power consumption and routability, that appear later in the product lifecycle.
This book addresses power optimization in modern electronic and computer systems. Exploring power optimization opportunities and their exploitation at various levels of abstraction, it is intended for students, researchers, and practitioners alike.
This new edition contains state-of-the-art material as well as the essentials. It includes a systematic approach to the design of chopper and auto-zero OpAmps and Instrumentation Amplifiers with input offset voltages of the order of 1uV.
