About this book
- 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).
