The emergence of the System-on-Chip era is requiring a comprehensive and compact review of the Electronic Design Automation industry, with the goal of allowing more efficient design of highly integrated circuits. Engineers need information on tools, methodologies, systems and a tutorial guideline on how to apply these concepts to effectively work on large ICs without getting lost in the overwhelming flood of information. This book is sketched as a qhandbookq, concentrating on the information really needed during specification, conceptual and detailed design of ICs. The Electronic Design Automation Handbook carefully details design tools and techniques for high performance ASIC-design. It shows the best practices for creating reusable designs in an SoC design methodology. The Electronic Design Automation Handbook was developed by colleagues from the Universities of Applied Sciences, Germany, who are engaged in the design of integrated electronics in education and research and which form the MPC Group of the Universities of Applied Sciences of Baden-WA¼rttemberg /Germany. MPC works as network of partners to industry and is able, due to the wide varying experiences of the institutes involved, to cover the entire range of the modern day circuit design. Each year more than 600 students are educated in the laboratories of MPC-members. Our personal experience from student and industry-projects ensures authenticity. The practical and theoretical experience from our projects has been used in the basis of this handbook. The Electronic Design Automation Handbook should appeal to the user of EDA, the working engineer and the student. We have tried to gather the knowledge which one must have to effectively design modern electronics with computer programs. This knowledge is interdisciplinary and covers the areas of classical computer science as well as digital design, semiconductor physics, electronic circuit technology up to the manufacture processes of ICs and printed circuit boards. The most important content from actual publications in IC design is included in The Electronic Design Automation Handbook. This book is a must on the shelf of every developer of electronics! Covered topics are: -Overview on Electronic design Automation, -Symbolic design, -High level language design, -Modelling and verification, -Implementation, -Tutorial on EDA, -References. The Electronic Design Automation Handbook can be used as a textbook for undergraduate and graduate students as well as for VLSI-design engineers and professionals from academia and industry, who have a basic knowledge of microelectronics and digital design.The recovery of the electric schematic from the layout is called Extract. The LVS ( Layout versus Schematic) tool compares the extracted schematic against the original netlist. This proves finally that the layout corresponds exactly with theanbsp;...
