If you're a communications system architect or designer, this is a required text for the efficient implementation of modern DSP algorithms.Having the text for a few months, a group of us have already applied techniques offered in the text in VHDL.The first chapters cover pipelining, parallel processing, retiming, folding and unfolding theory. These chapters are necessary to really understand DSP optimization concepts. I have not found another text where these concepts are discussed.The text is positioned well between a pure analytic text, and a "cookbook." Some personal effort is required to code a technique, but this shouldn't be difficult for someone using MATLAB. Once modeled and simulated, the implementer should be able to translate the high level code into VHDL, Verilog, or a programmable DSP such as the TI TMS320 in "C."Personally, I found Dr. Prahi's discussion of fixed point quantization by canonic signed digit format very useful.An example problem is provided with each technique to enhance understanding.
This is an excellent book, written by one of the authorities in the field. It offers detailed design techniques that will help the system designer explore the 3-dimension design space and achieve optimizations in all or either of: area, time, energy consumption. The use of specific examples illustrates the techniques, while complicated backround information is well-organized in the Appendices. I used the book as a recommended text book in my 1-semester "VLSI Signal Processing" graduate-level class and the students really loved it. It covers all availble techniques, from the simplest to the most advanced ones, with full explanation of the theory, with complete and detailed implementation steps for a wide range of signal processing algorithms.Since the book does not deal with the design at the physical level, but with transformations of the processing algorithms so that their VLSI implementations will satisfy certain criteria of optimality, it is not absolutely mandatory that the reader has already taken courses in VLSI design, although this could help appreciate the benefits offered by the techniques detailed in the book. The exercises found at the end of each chapter help the reader apply the learned techniques in all kinds of applications. I am convinced that the thoroughness and the high standards accomplished by the author in the writing of this book will help establish it as the leading text or reference book for several years to come.
This is a good book on VLSI DSP system design. I still hope the author could talk something more about implementation, especially VLSI circuit design. It seems this book covers too much about theory instead of design and implementation.
I spent a lot of money on this book and was very disappointed. The book is marginal at best and did nothing to help me implement a real world DSP algorithm. More University propaganda to confuse students. Its really a shame that professors get paid to make things more confusing than necessary. Ive been writing HDL code for over 12 years and given the rave reviews of this book thought it might add to my library. It did not. It is very poorly organized and the DSP explanations are weak and confusing. If you really want to understand how to implement a DSP algorithm using an HDL (verilog/vhdl), save your money and purchase the best DSP book available by Richard Lyons. There is no better DSP book out there, and you will never see it used by a professor. Perhaps the Steve Smith Guide to DSP book or free online version (gotta love the guy for that). Then go out and and get a free student copy of ModelSim or ActiveHDL, buy yourself a burger, start writing some code based off tutorials, and thank me for not letting you waste your money on this book. And of course if you end up doing this for a career, support your EDA tool vendors!
This is not something I need in a book: Too much information and not all of them are needed. What is the user guide of synthesis tool, place and route tool for? If I need them, I will look for those tools' documents, not this book.Also, where is ASIC? Nearly half of the book is user guide and FPGA project. Remain are some recall theories and RTL coding guideline.More than that, although the theories and RTL guideline are good (more then good, actually) but the testbench is disappointed. We cannot control inputs and review outputs manually, there must be some way to check output and only report result if the model does not behave like what expected.In conclusion, if we need concept of design and RTL code, then we can use the first half of the book; if we need FPGA projects, then some last chapters can help us; if we need some thing about ASIC example, forget it.
Though being a beginner in VLSI systems,this book helped me get the grip in subjects I considered extremely difficult to grasp.It is well written,with many real-life examples and offers the reader wide range of knowledge . I think it is not only useful but absolutely indispensable for students and professional engineers alike .
