This book deals with a very important topic in computer engineering techniques, i.e., the use of digital computers as design tools in the development of digital systems. The use of design automation has been rapidly gaining wide acceptance, especially in recent years, in the computer industry due to the rapid pace of changing technologies and the desirability of shortening design and manufacturing intervals. While a number of significant results in design automation have been realized, most are either scattered in various literatures or are not readily obtainable. This book, written by eight authors, represents a body of information where several phases of design automation techniques, i.e., logic synthesis, logic simulation, testing, and physical implementation (partitioning, placement, and routing) are discussed.
