This book is good at introducing basic concepts, if this is whatyou want to know. But it is really bad to introduce algorithm.It simply confuse you. Many time I don't know what the authoris talking about and have to find the original paper, which ismuch clear.
I read the Chapter on clock routing and found that theauthor did not do a good job on explaining about DMEalgorithm. I got more confused after reading it. So,I went to the library and checked the referenceswhich gave me clear understanding. Usually, a bookshoud give a reader with a very clear example aboutthe algorithm it presents. It's was not the case forthe DME algorithm.
I found this book very helpful in gaining a deeper understanding of what the tools I use are doing. Also, the terminology that is used and explained allows me to easier communication with the CAD developers. I found the information relating to clock skew and jitter of particular value to my daily work.
Very comprehensive in VLSI physical design automation. People who major in Computer Science and want to study in VLSI is suitable to buy this book. Also people who want to develop EDA tools can buy the book.
I found this book very helpful when working on my dissertation. It provides a great overview of the algorithms and approaches used in VLSI CAD, many of which can be extended to the FPGA CAD work I was doing. Other reviewers have commented that they sometimes referred to the original papers cited. I too did that when I wanted more information, but still found this book to be great as a reference and starting point.
