Digital audio, speech recognition, cable modems, radar, high-definition television-these are but a few of the modern computer and communications applications relying on digital signal processing (DSP) and the attendant application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs). As information-age industries constantly reinvent ASIC chips for lower power consumption and higher efficiency, there is a growing need for designers who are current and fluent in VLSI design methodologies for DSP.

Enter VLSI Digital Signal Processing Systems-a unique, comprehensive guide to performance optimization techniques in VLSI signal processing. Based on Keshab Parhi's highly respected and popular graduate-level courses, this volume is destined to become the standard text and reference in the field. This text integrates VLSI architecture theory and algorithms, addresses various architectures at the implementation level, and presents several approaches to analysis, estimation, and reduction of power consumption.

Throughout this book, Dr. Parhi explains how to design high-speed, low-area, and low-power VLSI systems for a broad range of DSP applications. He covers pipelining extensively as well as numerous other techniques, from parallel processing to scaling and roundoff noise computation. Readers are shown how to apply all techniques to improve implementations of several DSP algorithms, using both ASICs and off-the-shelf programmable digital signal processors.

The book features hundreds of graphs illustrating the various DSP algorithms, examples based on digital filters and transforms clarifying key concepts, and interesting end-of-chapter exercises that help match techniques with applications. In addition, the abundance of readily available techniques makes this an extremely useful resource for designers of DSP systems in wired, wireless, or multimedia communications. The material can be easily adopted in new courses on either VLSI digital signal processing architectures or high-performance VLSI system design.

An invaluable reference and practical guide to VLSI digital signal processing.

A tremendous source of optimization techniques indispensable in modern VLSI signal processing, VLSI Digital Signal Processing Systems promises to become the standard in the field. It offers a rich training ground for students of VLSI design for digital signal processing and provides immediate access to state-of-the-art, proven techniques for designers of DSP applications-in wired, wireless, or multimedia communications.

Topics include:
* Transformations for high speed using pipelining, retiming, and parallel processing techniques
* Power reduction transformations for supply voltage reduction as well as for strength or capacitance reduction
* Area reduction using folding techniques
* Strategies for arithmetic implementation
* Synchronous, wave, and asynchronous pipelining
* Design of programmable DSPs.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Globally there hardly exist more than a dozen book references on the subject of DSP hardware design. Among them…[Parhi's book is one of the] incontestable leaders, in both depth and breadth." (Analog Dialogue)

"Globally there hardly exist more than a dozen book references on the subject of DSP hardware design. Among them…[Parhi's book is one of the] incontestable leaders, in both depth and breadth." (Analog Dialogue)

Presents methodologies for designing custom or semi-custom very-large- scale-integration circuits for such applications as video compression, portable computers, digital audio, wireless communication system, radar imaging, global positioning system, and biomedical signal processing. Describes several high-level architectural transformations that can be used to design families of architectures for a given algorithm; designing algorithm structures for various digital signal processing based on such transformations as strength reduction, look- ahead, and relaxed look-ahead; and implementing arithmetic operations and digital filters. Appends specific techniques and procedures for various tasks. Based on material used in a course of one or two semesters for students who have previously taken a basic course in VLSI design.

    This book is highly academic in nature. I do not see the relevance as to how to apply the techniques presented on to a hardware implementation using a HDL (VHDL or verilog). The book would have ben helpful to me if it was more practical. It answered my questions but with lots of equations and math, not reasoning and judgement. That is why I give it 4 stars
