Professor Igor Markov and his co-editors Luciano Lavagno, Grant E. Martin, and Louis K. Scheffer have issued the second edition of the “Electronic Design Automation for Integrated Circuits Handbook,” which has been published by CRC Press.

Comprised of two volumes, Electronic Design Automation for Integrated Circuits Handbook, Second Edition addresses all major areas of EDA for integrated circuits (ICs). Chapters contributed by leading experts authoritatively discuss an array of topics ranging from system design to physical implementation.

New to This Edition:

  • Major updates appearing in the initial phases of the design flow, where the level of abstraction keeps rising to support more functionality with lower non-recurring engineering (NRE) costs
  • Significant revisions reflected in the final phases of the design flow, where the complexity due to smaller and smaller geometries is compounded by the slow progress of shorter wavelength lithography
  • New coverage of cutting-edge applications and approaches realized in the decade since publication of the previous edition – these are illustrated by new chapters on high-level synthesis, system-on-chip (SoC) block-based design, back-annotating system-level models, 3D circuit integration, and clock design

The two-volume set is available for purchase from the publisher’s website and on Amazon.

Prof. Igor Markov received his M.A. in Mathematics and Ph.D. in Computer Science from UCLA. Since joining the University of Michigan faculty in 2000, his research has included computers that make computers (software and hardware), secure hardware design, combinatorial optimization with applications to the design, verification and debugging of integrated circuits, as well as in quantum logic circuits. New algorithmic techniques developed by Prof. Markov have been implemented in open-source projects and industry tools, leading to order-of-magnitude improvements in practice.

Prof. Markov has coauthored five books and more than 200 refereed publications, some of which have been honored by best-paper awards. He is the recipient of a DAC Fellowship, an ACM SIGDA Outstanding New Faculty award, an ACM SIGDA Technical Leadership Award, an NSF CAREER award, an IBM Partnership Award, a Synplicity Inc. Faculty award, a Microsoft A. Richard Newton Breakthrough Research Award, and the inaugural IEEE CEDA Early Career Award. He is an ACM Distinguished Scientist. He was also honored by the University of Michigan with the EECS Department Outstanding Achievement Award.
