  • Electronic Design Automation with Graphic Processors: A Survey

    Today's Integrated Circuit (IC) architects depend on Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software to conquer the overwhelming complexity of Very Large Scale Integrated (VLSI) designs. As the complexity of IC chips is still fast increasing, it is critical to maintain the momentum towards growing productivity of EDA tools. On the other hand, single-core Central Processing Unit (CPU) performance is unlikely to see significant improvement in the near future. It is thus essential to develop highly efficient parallel algorithms and implementations for EDA applications so that their overall productivity can continue to increase in a scalable fashion. Among various emergent parallel platforms, Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) now offer the highest single-chip computing throughput. A large body of research has therefore been dedicated to accelerating EDA applications with GPUs. Electronic Design Automation with Graphic Processors is a timely state-of-the-art review of the existing literature on GPU-based EDA computing. Considering the substantial diversity of VLSI Computer Aided Design (CAD) algorithms, it puts forward a taxonomy of EDA computing patterns, which can be used as basic building blocks to construct complex EDA applications. GPU-based acceleration techniques for these patterns are then reviewed, and, building on this foundation, it goes on to survey recent works on building efficient data-parallel algorithms and implementations to unleash the power of GPUs for EDA applications.

  • PLC for Home and Industry Automation

    This chapter presents an overview of power line communication (PLC)‐based home and industry automation systems with interesting application examples.

Then, the KNX/EIB standard for in home and building automation bus systems is discussed. The chapter focuses on a sample application of PLC for industry automation, namely refrigeration container ships, based on the international standard ISO 10368:2006(E). The physical requirements of the system which include the transmission rate, modulation methods, and impedance specifications as well as the system components are discussed. The chapter provides a summary of the communication protocol AMIS CX1 profile of the company Siemens AG for PLC between electricity meters, breakers and other grid elements and the data concentrator points at central stations in the low‐voltage distribution grid.

  • FPGA Design Automation: A Survey

    FPGA Design Automation: A Survey is an up-to-date comprehensive survey/tutorial of FPGA design automation, with an emphasis on the recent developments within the past 5 to 10 years. The focus is on the theory and techniques that have been, or most likely will be, reduced to practice. It covers all major steps in FPGA design flow: routing and placement, circuit clustering, technology mapping and architecture-specific optimization, physical synthesis, RT-level and behavior-level synthesis, and power optimization. FPGA Design Automation: A Survey can be used as both a guide for beginners who are embarking on research in this relatively young yet exciting area, and a useful reference for established researchers in this field.

  • Smart Connected Buildings Design Automation: Foundations and Trends

    The term intelligent or smart building refers to the next generation of buildings that provide new levels of comfort to the occupants with minimum possible energy consumption. They not only follow commands but also proactively learn from occupants' behavior and adapt their operation based on the indoor and outdoor conditions. These buildings are no longer solely consumers of energy, but also significant players in the ecosystem of the smart grid, in that they provide regulation services to the grid as well as energy if equipped with solar panels or other green sources. Intelligent buildings are not only safe by design but also react in the case of a fault, system malfunction, or cyber-attack to steer the system into a safe operating region. There has been much research in academia and industry towards this goal. Smart Connected Buildings Design Automation: Foundations and Trends provides the reader with a broad overview of the activities in the field of smart connected building design automation that attempts to make the vision a reality. The overarching range of such activities includes developing simulation tools for modeling and the design of buildings, and consequently control algorithms proposed to make buildings smarter and more efficient. It goes on to survey real-world and large-scale implementation of such control strategies on physical buildings. It then presents a formal co-design methodology to design buildings, taking the view that buildings are prime examples of cyber-physical systems where the virtual and physical worlds meet. It concludes by describing the growing role of buildings in the operation of the smart grid. Smart Connected Buildings Design Automation: Foundations and Trends will be of interest to industry professionals and researchers who work in the area of smart buildings, smart cities, and smart grid, with an emphasis on energy efficiency, simulation tools, optimal control, and cyber-physical systems for the emerging power markets.

  • Design Automation of Real-Life Asynchronous Devices and Systems

    The number of gates on a chip is quickly growing toward and beyond the one billion mark. Keeping all the gates running at the beat of a single or a few rationally related clocks is becoming impossible. However, the electronics industry for the most part is still reluctant to adopt asynchronous design due to a common belief that there is a lack of commercial-quality Electronic Design Automation tools for asynchronous circuits.Design Automation of Real- Life Asynchronous Devices and Systems presents design flows that can tackle large designs without significant changes with respect to synchronous design flow. Limiting it self to the four design flows that come closest to this goal it starts by overviewing the most commercially and technically proven, Tangram. The other three flows, Null Convention Logic, de-synchronization and gate-level pipelining, can be considered as asynchronous re-implementations of synchronous specifications. Design Automation of Real-Life Asynchronous Devices and Systems demonstrates the possibility of implementing large legacy synchronous designs in an almost "push button" manner negating the need to re- educate synchronous RTL designers. It is essential reading for designers and researchers in large scale integrated circuit design.
