Getting started w/ ASICs

Hi Folks,

Could anyone recommend a good book on ASIC design basics? Also, what is the best tool/software that you can suggest?

Re: Getting started w/ ASICs

hi,
ASIC HANDBOOK is a good start for a overview.
as for tools, it's very expensive.

Certainly, you must hold a HDL. For Verilog, <Verilog HDL -A Guide to Digital Design and Synthesis>(2nd, Samir Palnitkar) is a godd choice.
