Product Description

From the Back Cover

This extensively updated Fourth Edition covers the entire field of modern integrated circuit design, helping readers play effective roles in any contemporary CMOS VLSI project.
This text offers deep, practical coverage of delay, power, interconnect, robustness, SPICE, power consumption, VHDL/Verilog and SystemVerilog, 65 nm design, and many other topics. The authors link theory to practice through hundreds of problems, worked examples, and exercises, and share their unsurpassed experience through “war stories”, Historical Perspective sections, and detailed guidance for avoiding design pitfalls.
For all engineers working in VLSI design, circuit design, logic design, and related fields.

About the Author

David Money Harris Associate Professor of Engineering at Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, CA, holds a Ph.D. from Stanford University and S.B. and M.Eng. degrees from MIT. His research interests include CMOS VLSI design, microprocessors, and computer arithmetic. He holds a dozen patents, is the author of three other books in the field of digital design and three hiking guidebooks, and has designed chips at Sun Microsystems, Intel, Hewlett-Packard, and Evans & Sutherland. 


Neil Weste is a member of the faculty at the Department of Electronic Engineering, Macquarie University; Adjunct Professor of Electrical Engineering at The University of Adelaide; and Director, Engineering at Cisco’s Wireless Networking Business Unit. He is a Fellow of the IEEE for his contributions to custom IC design, and a peer elected member of the IEEE Solid State Circuits Society. In 1997 he cofounded Radiata Communications (with David Skellern) which designed the first chip sets for the IEEE 802.11a WLAN standard; in 2001 Radiata was acquired by Cisco. He has served as department head at Bell Laboratories; leader of design projects for Symbolics, Inc.; and as president of TLW, Inc., an IC engineering company that completed groundbreaking chip designs for companies such as North American Philips, Analog Devices, AT&T Microelectronics and Thomson Consumer Electronics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for beginner and experts in the field Feb. 26 2011
By stan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Not only does this book contain basic introductory information to digital circuits and VLSI design, it also has been updated with the latest research on important and interesting research topics in digital circuit and VLSI design. It cites many papers published within the past years.

Great as a reference, a refresher for experts, or for undergraduates.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Informative Read Jan. 4 2011
By Matt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book offers a good review of basics as well as more advanced CMOS design. While some sections are very lacking in examples, there is a lot of good information buried in the reading which keeps it interesting enough to actually read through (assuming you are pretty into what you do/read). The HDL examples are useful if you have access to the design tools you need to actually play with.

3.0 out of 5 stars a downgrade from 2nd edition Sept. 28 2012
By davez - Published on Amazon.com
I read the 2nd edition many years ago and thought it was great for CMOS digital designs. I looked over the latest edition; it appears less useful for practicing engineers and becomes more of an introductory college textbook. Even as an introductory textbook, it is not a particularly good one. The 2nd ed was better organized and more succinct. I would keep my 2nd edition which is still useful and only slightly dated.

5.0 out of 5 stars really good book after finishing Rabaey's book Oct. 6 2013
By Shuo Wang (Bob) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book after finishing Rabaey's Digital Integrated Circuit(2nd) and have learned a lot of new knowledge closely related to industry.

Wow, my personal experience is if you are new and interested in digital circuit, then you'd better read three books:

1 "DDPP" digital design, principle and practice (4th edition)

This book is good for logic level design

2 Rabaey's Digital Integrated Circuit(2nd)

This book is good textbook for VLSI Course

3 CMOS VLSI Design: A Circuits and Systems Perspective (4th Edition)

This book contains information that is extremely useful for industry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book....More of an overview of each subject in VLSI Design than a in-depth coverage. Jan. 12 2014
By Eddie T. Boyd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It is a very excellent textbook that I think would benefit experienced engineers that are transitioning to a VLSI position than students who are taking a course in VLSI design. The upside is that the book does have a great reference section that will lead you to a more in-depth treatment of the topics covered in the book.
