VHDL Coding Styles and Methodologies

Ben Cohen 1999

VHDL Coding Styles and Methodologies, Edition is a follow up book to the first edition of same book and to VHDL Answers to Frequently Asked Questions, first and second editions. This book was originally written as a teaching tool for a VHDL training course. The author began writing the book because he could not find a practical and easy to read book that gave in depth coverage of both, the language and coding methodologies. This edition provides practical information on reusable software...


VLSI Digital Signal Processing Systems : Design and Implementation

Keshab K. Parhi 1999

Digital audio, speech recognition, cable modems, radar, high-definition television-these are but a few of the modern computer and communications applications relying on digital signal processing (DSP) and the attendant application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs). As information-age industries constantly reinvent ASIC chips for lower power consumption and higher efficiency, there is a growing need for designers who are current and fluent in VLSI design methodologies for DSP. Enter VLSI...


Verilog HDL Synthesis, A Practical Primer

J. Bhasker 1998

With this book, you can:

- Start writing synthesizable Verilog models quickly.

- See what constructs are supported for synthesis and how these map to hardware so that you can get the desired logic.

- Learn techniques to help avoid having functional mismatches.

- Immediately start using many of the models for commonly used hardware elements described for your own use or modify these for your own application.


VHDL and FPLDs in Digital Systems Design, Prototyping and Customization

Zoran Salcic 1998

This book represents an attempt to treat three aspects of digital systems, design, prototyping and customization, in an integrated manner using two major technologies: VHSIC Hardware Description Language (VHDL) as a modeling and specification tool, and Field-Programmable Logic Devices (FPLDs) as an implementation technology. They together make a very powerful combination for complex digital systems rapid design and prototyping as the important steps towards manufacturing, or, in the case of...


VHDL for Logic Synthesis

Andrew Rushton 1998

VHDL for Logic Synthesis Second Edition Andrew Rushton TransEDA Limited, Southampton, UK Very high-speed integrated circuit Hardware Description Language (VHDL) is the worldwide standard for computer-aided electronic system design. Logic synthesis automates gate-level design, allowing the designer to concentrate on a rgister-transfer level implementation. VHDL for Logic Synthesis provides comprehensive coverage of the language and its role in the generation of hardware. This enhanced second...


The Student's Guide to VHDL (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Systems on Silicon)

Peter J. Ashenden 1998

VHDL is a language for describing digital electronic systems. A vital, efficient step in the system design process, VHDL allows for the design and simulation of a hardware system prior to it actually being manufactured. This new book provides a tutorialintroduction to the fundamental modeling features of VHDL and shows how the features are used for the design of digital systems.

Offering the same clear, accessible style as The Designer's Guide to VHDL, The Student's Guide is designed as a...


VHDL Starter's Guide

Sudhakar Yalamanchili 1997

To be used as a primer or companion text for Digital Logic Design, Computer Architecture and VLSI Design courses given at the sophomore and junior levels.Designed as an inexpensive companion text in courses that use VHDL, this book provides students with a thorough grounding in the basic concepts and language of VHDL, and allows them to apply what they've learned using realistic examples. Concepts are followed by examples and tutorials. For schools wanting to introduce VHDL into their...


Field-Programmable Gate Arrays : Reconfigurable Logic for Rapid Prototyping and Implementation of Digital Systems

John V. Oldfield 1995

Timely, authoritative, application-oriented an in-depth exploration of current and future uses of FPGAs in digital systems The development of field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) may well be the most important breakthrough for the microelectronics industry since the invention of the microprocessor. Using FPGAs, a system designer working on a PC can now develop a working prototype in a few hours and change it at will in just a few minutes, rather than waiting weeks or months for a...


Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (The International Series in Engineering and Computer Science)

Stephen D. Brown 1992

Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) have emerged as an attractive means of implementing logic circuits, providing instant manufacturing turnaround and negligible prototype costs. They hold the promise of replacing much of the VLSI market now held by mask-programmed gate arrays. FPGAs offer an affordable solution for customized VLSI, over a wide variety of applications, and have also opened up new possibilities in designing reconfigurable digital systems. Field-Programmable Gate...
