Download ebook- CMOS VLSI Design: A Circuits and System Perspective, by Neil H.E.Weste and David Harris, International Edition, 3rd Edition. This is one of the best book on CMOS IC design and widely used in academic circles. This book is useful for VLSI, FPGA designers and engineers with lots of schematic diagrams which makes it easy to understand the theory and practice. It is a good book to learn how to design CMOS layout using free CMOS layout design tools provided within the book examples and tutorials.

CMOS VLSI Design: A Circuits and System Perspective

The book begins with an introduction, discussed here are the CMOS logic operation and various gates(NOR, NAND etc), the fabrication of CMOS, design partitioning, logic design(HDL programming), circuit design and physical design overview. The second chapter is on theory of MOS Transistor, the third on CMOS processing technology, fabrication process, design rules, CAD for design, and manufacturing issues. The 4th chapter is one circuit characterization and performance estimation where delay, size, power, interconnect, wires, reliability and scaling are discussed. The 5th chapter is on circuit simulation. Here spice modelling tutorial, device and circuit characterization and interconnect and simulation are explained. The 6th and 7th chapters are about combinatorial and sequential circuit design with CMOS. The 8th chapter is on design methodology and tools. Here an example with software radio is provided. Also in this chapter, the microprocessor/ DSP, cell- based design, full custom design, SoC are discussed. The design flow in this chapter explains the behavioural synthesis design flow(ASIC design flow), automated layout generation, mixed signal and custom design flow. Reading datasheet and documentation are also explained in this chapter. The design styles of CMOS Physical design are also addressed in this chapter. Lastly the various interchange format such as CIF, LEF, DEF, SDF etc are explained. The Testing and Verification is the topic of the 9th chapter and the 10th chapter is about datapath subsystem. The 11th chapter is on Array Subsystems and the final chapter 12 is on Special Purpose Subsystems.
