Electronic design automation (EDA) is among the crown jewels of electrical engineering. Without EDA tools, today's complex integrated circuits (ICs) would be impossible. Doesn't such an important field deserve a comprehensive, in-depth, and authoritative reference? The Electronic Design Automation for Integrated Circuits Handbook is that reference, ranging from system design through physical implementation. Organized for convenient access, this handbook is available as a set of two carefully focused books dedicated to the front- and back-end aspects of EDA, respectively.
What's included in the Handbook?
EDA for IC System Design, Verification, and Testing
This first installment examines logical design, focusing on system-level and micro-architectural design, verification, and testing. It begins with a general overview followed by application-specific tools and methods, specification and modeling languages, high-level synthesis approaches, power estimation methods, simulation techniques, and testing procedures.
EDA for IC Implementation, Circuit Design, and Process Technology
Devoted to physical design, this second book analyzes the classical RTL to GDS II design flow, analog and mixed-signal design, physical verification, analysis and extraction, and technology computer aided design (TCAD). It explores power analysis and optimization, equivalence checking, placement and routing, design closure, design for manufacturability, process simulation, and device modeling.
Comprising the work of expert contributors guided by leaders in the field, the Electronic Design Automation for Integrated Circuits Handbook provides a foundation of knowledge based on fundamental concepts and current industrial applications. It is an ideal resource for designers and users of EDA tools as well as a detailed introduction for newcomers to the field.

"These books represent the state of the art as it existed in 2005 and Early 2006. These are the techniques in use today and are the bases for future developments."
"Every design group should have a copy of this handbook in its library. It is an excellent reference text. It can also serve as outstanding background reading for new engineers exposed to some of these areas for the first time. The material here is better organized and better written than what could be found on the Web. Putting together such a high-quality, substantive work is quite an achievement."

"Comprising the work of expert contributors guided by leaders in the field, this handbook is an indispensable resource for EDA tool developers; electronics designers and engineers using EDA tools; students and faculty in electrical engineering, computer science, and computer engineering courses; companies that develop EDA tools and companies that design and build integrated circuits; and embedded system and software developers in system product and software companies."
