IEEE Transactions on Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) Systems covers design and realization of microelectronic systems using VLSI/ULSI technologies that require close collaboration among scientists and engineers in the fields of systems architecture, logic and circuit design, chips and wafer fabrication, packaging, testing and systems applications. Generation of specifications, design and verification must be performed at all abstraction levels, including the system, register-transfer, logic, circuit, transistor and process levels.
To address this critical area through a common forum, the IEEE Transactions on VLSI Systems was founded. The editorial board, consisting of international experts, invites original papers which emphasize the novel system integration aspects of microelectronic systems, including interactions among system design and partitioning, logic and memory design, digital and analog circuit design, layout synthesis, CAD tools, chips and wafer fabrication, testing and packaging, and system level qualification. Thus, the coverage of this Transactions focuses on VLSI/ULSI microelectronic system integration.
Topics of special interest include, but are not strictly limited to, the following:
- System Specification, Design and Partitioning
- System-level Test
- Reliable VLSI/ULSI Systems
- High Performance Computing and Communication Systems
- Wafer Scale Integration and Multichip Modules (MCMs)
- High-Speed Interconnects in Microelectronic Systems
- VLSI/ULSI Neural Networks and Their Applications
- Adaptive Computing Systems with FPGA components
- Mixed Analog/Digital Systems
- Cost, Performance Tradeoffs of VLSI/ULSI Systems
- Adaptive Computing Using Reconfigurable Components (FPGAs)
The articles in this journal are peer reviewed in accordance with the requirements set forth in the IEEE PSPB Operations Manual (sections 8.2.1.C & 8.2.2.A). Each published article was reviewed by a minimum of two independent reviewers using a single-blind peer review process, where the identities of the reviewers are not known to the authors, but the reviewers know the identities of the authors. Articles will be screened for plagiarism before acceptance.
