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.
