Chapter 6. Logic synthesis in a nutshell

About This Chapter

What is logic synthesis? As the name itself suggests, logic synthesis is the process of automatic production of logic components, in particular digital circuits. It is a subject about how to abstract and represent logic circuits, how to manipulate and transform them, and how to analyze and optimize them. Why does logic synthesis matter? Not only does it play a crucial role in the electronic design automation flow, its techniques also find broader and broader applications in formal verification, software synthesis, and other fields. How is logic synthesis done? Read on!

This chapter covers classic elements of logic synthesis for combinational circuits. After introducing basic data structures ...
