The size of technically producible integrated circuits increases continuously, but the ability to design and verify these circuits does not keep up. Therefore today's design flow has to be improved. Using a visionary approach, this book analyzes the current design methodology and verification methodology, a number of deficiencies are identified and solutions suggested. Improvements in the methodology as well as in the underlying algorithms are proposed.
Prof. Rolf Drechsler has authored and edited numerous books for Springer

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The authors, Gorschwin Fey and Rolf Drechsler, have identified several deficiencies in the design steps and manual fault diagnosis and have proposed a number of methods to alleviate the problems. . The book is a useful contribution to circuit design productivity and reliability."­­­ (Nirode C. Mohanty, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1198, 2010)
