Digital Integrated Circuits
A Design Perspective

A Prentice-Hall Publication by Jan M. Rabaey

Welcome to the home of "Digital Integrated Circuits", a dynamic companion to a similarly named book published by Prentice-Hall. The book is intended for use in a senior/graduate level digital circuit design class, but also presents a state-of-the-art reference for professional engineers. Besides providing a solid, in-depth analysis of the operation of digital gates, it addresses the compelling issues facing the modern digital circuit designer such as performance optimization, power minimization, interconnect, packaging, timing synchronization, and the impact of design automation.

This homepage offers extra homework exercises, challenging design problems, companion software tools, instructor material and errata. It is our hope that the offered selection will grow over time as a result of reader contributions.
