Introduction to Logic Synthesis (slides, video)
Alan Mishchenko, University of California, Berkeley
10:30am, Friday 08 October 2010

Galois Inc.421 SW 6th Ave. Suite 300, Portland, OR, USA(3rd floor of the Commonwealth building)

The lecture describes the problems solved by logic synthesis. It presents functional representations and typical computations applied to Boolean networks, such as traversal, windowing, cut computation, simulation, Boolean reasoning. Presented next are And-Inverter Graphs (AIGs) that are increasingly used as a unifying representation for all problems. The lecture is finished by an overview of AIG-based solutions in synthesis, technology mapping, and formal verification.
Alan Mishchenko graduated from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Moscow, Russia, in 1993, and received his Ph.D. degree from Glushkov Institute of Cybernetics, Kiev, Ukraine, in 1997. He has been a research scientist in the US since 1998.  Currently, Alan is an Associate Researcher at University of California, Berkeley.  His research interests are in developing computationally efficient methods for logic synthesis and verification.
