The Art of Hardware Architecture

Design Methods and Techniques for Digital Circuits

Authors: Arora, Mohit

  • Describes techniques to help IP designers get it right the first time, creating designs optimized in terms of power, area and performance
  • Focuses on practical aspects of chip design and minimizes theory
  • Covers chip design in a consistent way, starting with basics and gradually developing advanced concepts, such as electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) design techniques and low-power design techniques such as dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS)

About this book

This book highlights the complex issues, tasks and skills that must be mastered by an IP designer, in order to design an optimized and robust digital circuit to solve a problem. The techniques and methodologies described can serve as a bridge between specifications that are known to the designer and RTL code that is final outcome, reducing significantly the time it takes to convert initial ideas and concepts into right-first-time silicon.  Coverage focuses on real problems rather than theoretical concepts, with an emphasis on design techniques across various aspects of chip-design.
