The skills and guidance needed to master RTL hardware design

This book teaches readers how to systematically design efficient,portable, and scalable Register Transfer Level (RTL) digitalcircuits using the VHDL hardware description language and synthesissoftware. Focusing on the module-level design, which is composed offunctional units, routing circuit, and storage, the bookillustrates the relationship between the VHDL constructs and theunderlying hardware components, and shows how to develop codes thatfaithfully reflect the module-level design and can be synthesizedinto efficient gate-level implementation.

Several unique features distinguish the book:
* Coding style that shows a clear relationship between VHDLconstructs and hardware components
* Conceptual diagrams that illustrate the realization of VHDLcodes
* Emphasis on the code reuse
* Practical examples that demonstrate and reinforce designconcepts, procedures, and techniques
* Two chapters on realizing sequential algorithms in hardware
* Two chapters on scalable and parameterized designs andcoding
* One chapter covering the synchronization and interface betweenmultiple clock domains

Although the focus of the book is RTL synthesis, it also examinesthe synthesis task from the perspective of the overall developmentprocess. Readers learn good design practices and guidelines toensure that an RTL design can accommodate future simulation,verification, and testing needs, and can be easily incorporatedinto a larger system or reused. Discussion is independent oftechnology and can be applied to both ASIC and FPGA devices.

With a balanced presentation of fundamentals and practicalexamples, this is an excellent textbook for upper-levelundergraduate or graduate courses in advanced digital logic.Engineers who need to make effective use of today's synthesissoftware and FPGA devices should also refer to this book.
A presentation of circuit synthesis and circuit simulation using VHDL (including VHDL 2008), with an emphasis on design examples and laboratory exercises.

This text offers a comprehensive treatment of VHDL and its applications to the design and simulation of real, industry-standard circuits. It focuses on the use of VHDL rather than solely on the language, showing why and how certain types of circuits are inferred from the language constructs and how any of the four simulation categories can be implemented. It makes a rigorous distinction between VHDL for synthesis and VHDL for simulation. The VHDL codes in all design examples are complete, and circuit diagrams, physical synthesis in FPGAs, simulation results, and explanatory comments are included with the designs. The text reviews fundamental concepts of digital electronics and design and includes a series of appendixes that offer tutorials on important design tools including ISE, Quartus II, and ModelSim, as well as descriptions of programmable logic devices in which the designs are implemented, the DE2 development board, standard VHDL packages, and other features. All four VHDL editions (1987, 1993, 2002, and 2008) are covered.

This expanded second edition is the first textbook on VHDL to include a detailed analysis of circuit simulation with VHDL testbenches in all four categories (nonautomated, fully automated, functional, and timing simulations), accompanied by complete practical examples. Chapters 1–9 have been updated, with new design examples and new details on such topics as data types and code statements. Chapter 10 is entirely new and deals exclusively with simulation. Chapters 11–17 are also entirely new, presenting extended and advanced designs with theoretical and practical coverage of serial data communications circuits, video circuits, and other topics. There are many more illustrations, and the exercises have been updated and their number more than doubled.

Explores the unique hardware programmability of FPGA-basedembedded systems, using a learn-by-doing approach to introduce theconcepts and techniques for embedded SoPC design with Verilog

An SoPC (system on a programmable chip) integrates a processor,memory modules, I/O peripherals, and custom hardware acceleratorsinto a single FPGA (field-programmable gate array) device. Inaddition to the customized software, customized hardware can bedeveloped and incorporated into the embedded system aswell—allowing us to configure the soft-core processor, createtailored I/O interfaces, and develop specialized hardwareaccelerators for computation-intensive tasks.

Utilizing an Altera FPGA prototyping board and its Nios IIsoft-core processor, Embedded SoPC Design with Nios II Processorand Verilog Examples takes a "learn by doing" approach toillustrate the hardware and software design and development processby including realistic projects that can be implemented and testedon the board.

Emphasizing hardware design and integration throughout, the bookis divided into four major parts:

Part I covers HDL and synthesis of custom hardware

Part II introduces the Nios II processor and provides anoverview of embedded software development

Part III demonstrates the design and development of hardware andsoftware of several complex I/O peripherals, including a PS2keyboard and mouse, a graphic video controller, an audio codec, andan SD (secure digital) card

Part IV provides several case studies of the integration ofhardware accelerators, including a custom GCD (greatest commondivisor) circuit, a Mandelbrot set fractal circuit, and an audiosynthesizer based on DDFS (direct digital frequency synthesis)methodology

While designing and developing an embedded SoPC can berewarding, the learning can be a long and winding journey. Thisbook shows the trail ahead and guides readers through the initialsteps to exploit the full potential of this emergingmethodology.
