This book provides some recent advances in design nanometer VLSI chips. The selected topics try to present some open problems and challenges with important topics ranging from design tools, new post-silicon devices, GPU-based parallel computing, emerging 3D integration, and antenna design. The book consists of two parts, with chapters such as: VLSI design for multi-sensor smart systems on a chip, Three-dimensional integrated circuits design for thousand-core processors, Parallel symbolic analysis of large analog circuits on GPU platforms, Algorithms for CAD tools VLSI design, A multilevel memetic algorithm for large SAT-encoded problems, etc.

INAOE

Esteban Tlelo-Cuautle received a B.Sc. degree from Instituto Tecnológico de Puebla in 1993. He then received both M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from Instituto Nacional de Astrofísica, Óptica y Electrónica (INAOE), in 1995 and 2000, respectively. In 2001 he was appointed as professor-researcher at INAOE. From 2009-2010, he served as a Visiting Researcher in the department of electrical engineering at the University of California Riverside, USA. He has authored seven books, fifteen book chapters, 56 journal articles and around 100 conference papers. He is an IEEE Senior Member and a member of the National System for Researchers (SNI-México). He serves in the editorial board of Nonlinear Science Letters B: Chaos, Fractal and Synchronization; Trends in Applied Sciences Research; and Journal of Applied Sciences. He regularly serves as a reviewer in about 22 journals and 15 international conferences. His research interests include systematic synthesis and behavioral modeling and simulation of linear and nonlinear circuits and systems, chaotic oscillators, symbolic analysis, multi-objective evolutionary algorithms, and analog/RF and mixed-signal design automation tools.

Edited Books

  • Chaotic Systems

    This book presents a collection of major developments in chaos systems covering aspects on chaotic behavioral modeling and simulation, control and synchronization of chaos systems, and applications like secure communications. It is a good source to acquire recent knowledge and ideas for future research on chaos systems and to develop experiments applied to real life problems. That way, this book is very interesting for students, academia and industry since the collected chapters provide a rich cocktail while balancing theory and applications.

  • Advances in Analog Circuits

    This book highlights key design issues and challenges to guarantee the development of successful applications of analog circuits. Researchers around the world share acquired experience and insights to develop advances in analog circuit design, modeling and simulation. The key contributions of the sixteen chapters focus on recent advances in analog circuits to accomplish academic or industrial target specifications.
