Reviews - What do customers think about VLSI Physical Design Automation: Theory and Practice?
Surprisingly still quite fresh 9 years on Oct 19, 2005
Since this book was published in 1997, a lot has happend in the area of physical design automation--but this is still a remarkably good text, especially for students and beginners. This because not only is it exceedingly clearly written, it concentraits on classic techniques which form the foundation for techniques still used today.
What is urgently needed is a bang-up-to-date text on this subject which contains materials for the more advanced user--not just for students, but also for old salts like myself who have been working in the trenches for 10 years! If such a text were to be written by these authors, I'm sure it would be a classic.
Sadly, EDA industry is a very small and shrinking industry, and a book like this is HARD to write, because you have to be an expert in so many fields. So this book is probably as good as we can reasonably expect to see anytime soon.
Excelent introductry book, will explained, intersting topics Oct 13, 1999
I have read most of the book and implemented most of the propsed algorithms. It was easy to understend. The authors simplified much of the notations that is used by the oirignal writers of the algorithms. It opens the area for any one intersted in those topics to continue research with an open mind about what to choose and how.
Easy to understand, great book Aug 14, 1999
A nice book, infact one of the best in the field, they give good review of the available research in the area. Good for undergraduate as well as post graduates. When you read it you feel as if the author was standing and explaining the material. Good work Sait !!
A good introductory book for learning basic VLSI CAD algorit Jul 24, 1999
This is well written book that easy to understand for knowing basic algorithms and design techniques for VLSI design. Authors have presented the material in formal yet simple language that makes it a god book for senior undergraduates and starters in VLSI CAD.
