The Number 1 VLSI Design Guide—Now Fully Updated for IP-Based Design and the Newest Technologies
Modern VLSI Design, Fourth Edition, offers authoritative, up-to-the-minute guidance for the entire VLSI design process—from architecture and logic design through layout and packaging. Wayne Wolf has systematically updated his award-winning book for today’s newest technologies and highest-value design techniques. Wolf introduces powerful new IP-based design techniques at all three levels: gates, subsystems, and architecture. He presents deeper coverage of logic design fundamentals, clocking and timing, and much more. No other VLSI guide presents as much up-to-date information for maximizing performance, minimizing power utilization, and achieving rapid design turnarounds.

Wayne Wolf is Rhesa “Ray” S. Farmer Jr. Distinguished Chair in Embedded Computing Systems and Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Before joining Georgia Tech, he was with Princeton University from 1989 to 2007 and AT&T Bell Laboratories from 1984 to 1989. He received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Stanford University in 1980, 1981, and 1984, respectively. His research interests include VLSI systems, embedded computing, cyber-physical systems, and embedded computer vision. He has chaired several conferences, including CODES, EMSOFT, CASES, and ICCD. He was founding editor-in-chief of ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems and founding co-editor-in-chief of Design Automation for Embedded Systems. He is a Fellow of the ACM and IEEE. He received the ASEE/CSE and HP Frederick E. Terman Award in 2003 and the IEEE Circuits and Systems Education Award in 2006.
I have set up a new Web site for my books. You can find it at http://www.waynewolf.us or through my Georgia Tech home page.
I set for myself two goals in producing this fourth edition of Modern VLSI Design. First, I wanted to update the book for more modern technologies and design methods. This includes obvious changes like smaller design rules. But it also includes emphasizing more system-level topics such as IP-based design. Second, I wanted to continue to improve the book's treatment of the fundamentals of logic design. VLSI is often treated as circuit design, meaning that traditional logic design topics like pipelining can easily become lost.
In between the third and fourth editions of this book, I respun the third edition as FPGA-Based System Design. That book added new FPGA-oriented material to material from Modern VLSI Design. In this edition, I've decided to borrow back some material from the FPGA book. The largest inclusion was the section on sequential system performance. I had never been happy with my treatment of that material. After 10 years of trying, I came up with a more acceptable description of clocking and timing in the FPGA book and I am now bringing it back to VLSI. I included material on busses, Rent's Rule, pipelining, and hardware description languages. I also borrowed some material on FPGAs themselves to flesh out that treatment from the third edition. An increasing number of designs include FPGA fabrics to add flexibility; FPGAs also make good design projects for VLSI classes. Material on IP-based design is presented at several levels of hierarchy: gates, subsystems, and architecture.
As part of this update, I eliminated the CAD chapter from this edition because I finally decided that such detailed treatment of many of the CAD tools is not strictly necessary. I also deleted the chapter on chip design.
Chip design has changed fundamentally in the past 20 years since I started to work on this book. Chip designers think less about rectangles and more about large blocks. To reflect this shift, I added a new chapter on system-on-chip design. Intellectual property is a fundamental fact of life in VLSI design--either you will design IP modules or you will use someone else's IP modules.
In addition to changing the chapters themselves, I also substantially revised the problems at the end of each chapter. These new problems better reflect the new material and they provide new challenges for students.
While I was at it, I also made some cosmetic changes to the book. I changed the typesetting to use the same format for left- and right-hand pages, an unfortunate necessity with today's tools. I also added margin headers--those phrases you see on the left-hand margin.
