design compiler reference manual

You can do the training of the Design Compiler Tut. After that, you could know about the flow and the basic command of DC. Then, I think you might do the synthsis on your design for meeting your require.

You'd better find some script files about DC for more understanding for DC concept.
Remeber foundmental concept is very important for synthesis!!

design compiler workshop

In our experience all books about DC (and there are not to much of them) are not worth buying. Synopsys documentation is very good and much better then any book you could buy.
But the best thing for start is Synopsys Chip Synthesis Workshop (because it is in form of slides, maybe you could combine them with DC User Guide). DC Reference Manual covers same things as User Guide, but is 3 times bigger. Advanced Chip Synthesis Workshop (in slides again) is the next step, when you have enough experience.

learn design compiler

You can use one Synopsys example as reference, then use user guide for
detail understanding.

synopsys design compiler asic download

I learnt by self. Advanced Asic Chip Synthesis by Bhatnagar Himanshu is really good. How to give constraints and different dc commands all these things very well explained. Also read synopsys DC user guide. Initially take small design and try to synthesize the design , try to remove warnings .

You may start from a simple project/example. Learning by doing a project
is much better than just reading sth in this case.
Writing scripts helps. I myself prefer scripts to GUI.

for reading materials, Synopsys' online documents are good enuf.
and Himanshu Bhatnagar's Advanced ASIC Chip Synthesis is also
pretty good. You can download it on EDABoard.

for training course, there's a link:
