"This book represents a significant contribution to understanding and using configurable embedded processors. The reader will find all design aspects described in detail by the experts in the field, and thus this book will serve as the "standard reference" on this topic.
This contribution is very up to date and complete, as it covers modeling, analysis and design of both the hardware and software components of customizable processors. A unique feature is the gathering, under the same cover, several topics that are different in nature but intimately related." --Giovanni De Micheli, Professor and Director of the Integrated Systems Centre at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland, and President of the Scientific Committee of CSEM (Centre Suisse d'Electronique et de Microtechnique SA), Neuchâtel, Switzerland.
"Customized Embedded Processors provides an objective, state-of-the-art treatment of emerging tools for the design of complex systems-on-a-chip. The contents of the book are provided by well-known experts in the field who have decades of real-world experience. Understanding the pitfalls, limitations, and advantages of SoC design alternatives is a must in today's competitive environment where we cannot afford to re-invent the wheel every few years. I highly recommend the book for anyone who practices advanced architecture development for energy-efficient, low-cost SoC's." --Don Shaver, Senior Member IEEE, Texas Instruments Fellow
"The concept of configurable processors has emerged from the lab and entered the mainstream for high-volume electronic systems. Customizable Embedded Processors is the best overview to date of this rapidly evolving field. It pulls together the work of the leading researchers and practitioners from around the world into a single consistent exploration of the benefits, challenges and techniques for creating efficient application-specific proce
