VLSI (Very large scale integrated) circuits are widely used in modern electronic products. Since the invention of the planar integrated circuit by Robert Noyce and Jack Kelby in 1959, the number of transistors that can be successfully fabricated on a single chip has doubled almost every year. As the complexity and performance requirements of VLSI circuits are increasing exponentially, the design process has to be automated by using computer-aided design (CAD) tools. A CAD tool is a computer program that can help an IC designer in the VLSI design process. This book is concerned with the problem of automatically synthesizing a class of digital circuits.
