"Re-use" in computer-aided design of electronic circuits, involves the strategic re-use of existing IC designs for significantly improved productivity. The economic advantages promised from the reuse of IC intellectual property blocks should be of interest to the design automation community. This book is tailored as a single-source reference to meet directly the needs of designers embarking on the reuse strategy. The text is structured to emphasize the practical application aspects of IC design methodology and architecture and reuse strategy and tasks. Coverage integrates an economics view, industry examples and technology-specific applications including a tool supporting reuse by retrieval and parameterization. The mathematical formation and background theory, including data analysis, is given in extended appendix sections for comprehensive coverage. Essence of the subject is presented in two main chapters: design methodologies and architectures, and re-use strategies and design by re-use. Theoretical and philosophical formation to design reuse is given in appendix sections, and usage in modern electronic engineering is illustrated with industry examples and technology-specific applications.

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: * Graph-oriented visualisations enabling the reader to understand the requirements of future interdisciplinary design tools * Guidance on information modelling languages, system classification and decomposition of systems under development * Section on reuse strategies and tasks examining the practical aspects of the technique for both analogue and digital design * Data management and retrieval methods including the algebra of the selection process * Comprehensive appendices covering fine-grained design representations, VLSI design standards and data model extraction of a VHDL multiplier design 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.
