New Book Examines VLSI Systems
March 16, 2023
Very large scale integrated (VLSI) systems consist of dozens of interconnected subsystems, hundreds of modules, and many billions of transistors and wires. Graph theory is crucial for managing and analyzing these pervasive systems.
In their new book, Graphs in VLSI (Springer International Publishing, 2023), Eby Friedman, Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Eby’s former PhD student Rassul Bairamkulov, now at École Polytechique Fédérale de Lausanne, discuss VLSI system design from the perspective of graph theory, connecting pure mathematics with practical product development.
Their book not only provides a review of established graph theoretic practices, but also discusses the latest advancements in graph theory driving modern VLSI technologies, covering a wide range of design issues such as synchronization, power network models and analysis, and interconnect routing and synthesis.
