Algorithms and Data Structures in VLSI Design
by Christoph Meinel, Thorsten Theobald
Publisher: Springer 1998
Number of pages: 279
One of the main problems in chip design is the huge number of possible combinations of individual chip elements, leading to a combinatorial explosion as chips become more complex. New key results in theoretical computer science and in the design of data structures and efficient algorithms, can be applied fruitfully here. The application of ordered binary decision diagrams (OBDDs) has led to dramatic performance improvements in many computer-aided design projects. This textbook provides an introduction to the foundations of this interdisciplinary research area with an emphasis on applications in computer-aided circuit design and formal verification.

Computer Organization and Design Fundamentals by David Tarnoff gives the tools for better understanding of the organization and logic design of the computer's internals. It will introduce the reader into designing and building computer circuits.
by Bart Van Zeghbroeck
This book explores the behavior of semiconductor devices, to show the relation between the device material parameters, and the resulting electrical characteristics. The text provides the link between the physics and the design of electronic circuits.
by Roger Young - 1st Books Library
The book is an electrical engineering text aimed at a non-technical audience with no knowledge of computers or electronics. The book begins with a very simple circuit and continues to a very complex circuit (a computer) while explaining everything.

The book exposes students to a significant body of computer science knowledge, gained through a series of hardware and software construction tasks. These tasks demonstrate how theoretical and applied techniques are used in practice.
