Scope: System-on-Chip (SoC) represents the next major market for microelectronics, and there is considerable interest world-wide in developing effective methods and tools to support the SoC paradigm. SoC is an expanding field, at present the technical and technological literature about the overall state-of-the-art in SoC is dispersed across a wide spectrum which includes books, journals, and conference proceedings.
The book provides a comprehensive and accessible source of state-of-the-art information on existing and emerging SoC key research areas, provided by leading experts in the field. This book covers the general principles of designing, validating and testing complex embedded computing systems and their underlying tradeoffs. The book has twenty five chapters organised into eight parts, each part focuses on a particular topic of SoC. Each chapter has some background covering the basic principles, and extensive list of references. It is aimed at graduate students, designers and managers working in Electronic and Computer engineering.
About the Editor: Bashir M. Al-Hashimi is Professor of Computing Engineering at the School of Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton, UK.

"From my perspective, the coverage was good." "...the most useful chapters were by Paul Pop, Jaehwan John Lee, Prabhat Mishra, Edward Lee, J Hu, P Marchal and Niraj Jha. Overall, I liked this book (which is why my lab now has three copies). I think the author has succeeded in assembling a very useful review of the current state of the art (which I will hand out to many of my new PhD students as they start projects in the next couple of years)." Dr. Michael J. Pont, Leicester University (http://www.le.ac.uk/eg/mjp9/)
"...the book has been edited in a seamless way with each paper being assigned its own chapter number with the figures numbered in kind. Each paper within the book stands alone without essentially relying on the material contained in any other paper in the book. Each paper presents its material in a concise way; if not occasionally dry, with a definite beginning, discussion and conclusion.
Although the material does stand alone, each paper is heavily referenced with twenty or thirty references provided in some cases. There are a number of instances where in order to understand the content of the article it is necessary to also have read the references. This is especially the case where the paper is building on top of previous research in the subject."
"The forward to the book states that the intended usage for the book is students, academics, designers and managers involved in System-on-Chip design. In fairness, the book meets its own aspiration in this regard. This is not to say that these are the only possible markets - any company with an interest in System-on-Chip would benefit from a copy on the shelves of the corporate library." Mark Tickner
The book will be of interest to post graduates, designers and managers as well as those working in electronic and computer engineering.
