In the electronics industry today consumer demand for devices with hyper-connectivity and mobility has resulted in the development of a complete system on a chip (SoC). Using the old ‘rule of thumb’ design methods of the past is no longer feasible for these new complex electronic systems. To develop highly successful systems that meet the requirements and quality expectations of customers, engineers now need to use a rigorous, model-based approach in their designs.
This book provides the definitive guide to the techniques, methods and technologies for electronic systems engineers, embedded systems engineers, and hardware and software engineers to carry out model- based electronic system design, as well as for students of IC systems design. Based on the authors’ considerable industrial experience, the book shows how to implement the methods in the context of integrated circuit design flows.
- Complete guide to methods, techniques and technologies of model-based engineering design for developing robust electronic systems
- Written by world experts in model-based design who have considerable industrial experience
- Shows how to adopt the methods using numerous industrial examples in the context of integrated circuit design
"This textbook is intended for practicing engineers and as a reference for graduate students to learn these advanced design and modeling techniques. It provides a complete guide to the methods, techniques and technologies of model-based engineering design for electrical systems, provides methods and models and shows how to adopt various methods for integrated circuit design using actual industrial examples." --University of Arkansas Newswire online, May 2013
"Wilson and Mantooth provide a desk-top reference for engineers, students, and researchers who intend to carry out model-based electronic engineering. It can also be used for an upper-level undergraduate or entry-level graduate courses introducing model-base engineering." --Reference & Research Book News, October 2013
