San Jose, CA, United States, 2011/05/31 - Atrenta, Inc., a leading provider of SoC Realization solutions for the semiconductor and electronic systems industries, announced the availability of a comprehensive text book on RTL design.
The text book "Principles of VLSI RTL Design, A Practical Guide", authored by Sanjay Churiwala and Sapan Garg is being published by Springer Science+Business Media. The book is based on the author's experiences while working at Atrenta's Noida, India R&D center.
"Through our years of work at Atrenta, we had seen a lot of designs and design methodologies. We developed a good understanding of what best practices looked like," said Sanjay Churiwala. "It was gratifying to be able to put all those ideas down on paper so others can benefit from our experiences."
The book targets RTL designers and provides rich information on design practices and how they affect downstream implementation tasks. Topics discussed in the text include: reliable RTL construction, clock domain crossings and clock synchronization, design for test and testability, power consumption, static timing analysis, timing exception handling and routing congestion.
"The decisions made by RTL designers can have a profound impact on the schedule and ultimate quality of the chip," said Sapan Garg. "Through the use of many examples, we highlight how the RTL designer can heavily influence the outcome of any design project."
The book is available now through Springer.com or at Amazon.com/.
