Reuse in Electronic Design From Information Modelling to Intellectual Properties Peter Conradi Berlin, Germany Reuse of existing IC intellectual property blocks is currently the hot topic in electronic design automation. By cutting development time and improving designer productivity, reuse offers a faster time to market and consequently increased profitability. Conradi encompasses the fundamentals of physical system modelling, design methodologies and basic design architectures plus reuse strategies and tasks. Features include:<br> * Graph-oriented visualisations enabling the reader to understand the requirements of future interdisciplinary design tools<br> * Guidance on information modelling languages, system classification and decomposition of systems under development<br> * Section on reuse strategies and tasks examining the practical aspects of the technique for both analogue and digital design<br> * Data management and retrieval methods including the algebra of the selection process<br> * Comprehensive appendices covering fine-grained design representations, VLSI design standards and data model extraction of a VHDL multiplier design<br> This timely exposition of design capture and manipulation techniques will be a boon for postgraduate electronics students and researchers. CAD engineers and electronic designers will profit from the industry examples and the practical applications of the reuse cycle.
