System-on-chip design: From system to transistor

A must-read for system and circuit designers, technologists and physicists from the World Scientific Advanced Series in Electrical and Computer Engineering

Today’s integrated silicon circuits and systems for wireless communications are of a huge complexity. The problem is currently tackled with design re-use of processors and custom design of hardware accelerators, mixed-signal, and analog circuits. It is therefore extremely important for system and circuit designers to understand the physical implications of system and circuit solutions based on hardware/software co-design as well as for technologists and physicists to cope with the system and circuit requirements in terms of power, speed, and data throughput.

Up to date, a book covering all the steps (from the system-level to the transistor-level) necessary to design, implement, and test a silicon system does not exist. Silicon Systems for Wireless LAN targets this empty space and bridges the gap between the system-world and the transistor-world (between system and circuit designers, technologists, and physicist).

Silicon Systems for Wireless LAN retails for US$148 / £130 (hardcover) and is also available in electronic formats. To order or know more about the book, visit
