DIGITAL DESIGN FROM SCRATCH USING VHDL IN FPGAs

       Volume 1: Growing Logical Legs

Both a primer and comprehensive introduction to the endlessly inventive world of digital design, the book leverages the enhanced effectiveness of diagrams and figures, to guide the student from a ground zero of understanding, through the digital building blocks of clocked registers, counters, shift-registers, and state machines via the powerful VHDL programming language. Colorful and accessible, the pages come alive with visual insights into the technology powering every aspect of our lives, yet which remains a deep mystery to most of us.


 
 
 


DIGITAL DESIGN FROM SCRATCH WITH VHDL IN FPGAs

       Volume 2: Running with Logical Legs

Using the fundamentals fuel gathered from the first book, volume 2 of Digital Design from Scratch, launches the inquisitive reader into practical realms of FPGA design, mastering iconic FPGA implementation features such as simulation, memory structures, memory-mapped buses, FIFOs, serial interfaces such as UARTs, I2C, and SPI, and pipelined methods to meet timing. Like the first volume, colorful diagrams guide the learning process with visual clarity. Detailed exercises allow the student of digital design to flex their burgeoning logical muscles. Comprehensive and approachable, the book teaches the VHDL programming language in parallel with FPGA-based logic design..

 
 
 


VERILOG BY EXAMPLE

A practical primer for the student and practicing engineer already familiar with the basics of digital design, the reference develops a working grasp of the verilog hardware description language step-by-step using easy-to-understand examples. Starting with a simple but workable design sample, increasingly more complex fundamentals of the language are introduced until all major features of verilog are brought to light. Included in the coverage are state machines, modular design, FPGA-based memories, clock management, specialized I/O, and an introduction to techniques of simulation. The goal is to prepare the reader to design real-world FPGA solutions.

What Strunk and White did for the English language with "The Elements of Style," VERILOG BY EXAMPLE does for FPGA design.


 
 
 


VHDL BY EXAMPLE

VERILOG BY EXAMPLE has introduced hundreds of students of engineering to the basics of the verilog hardware codign language. Now the companion book VHDL BY EXAMPLE does the same for VHDL coding. Like it's brother, VHDL By Example develops a working grasp of the VHDL hardware description language step-by-step using easy-to-understand examples. Starting with a simple but workable design sample, increasingly more complex fundamentals of the language are introduced until a complete set of VHDL features are brought to light. Included in the coverage are state machines, modular design, FPGA-based memories, clock management, specialized I/O, and an introduction to techniques of simulation. The goal is to prepare the reader to design real-world FPGA solutions.
