This book provides a rich toolbox of design techniques and templates to solve practical, every-day problems using FPGAs. Using a modular structure, the book gives ‘easy-to-find’ design techniques and templates at all levels, together with functional code, which engineers can easily match and apply to their application.

The ‘easy-to-find’

Overview

This book provides a rich toolbox of design techniques and templates to solve practical, every-day problems using FPGAs. Using a modular structure, the book gives ‘easy-to-find’ design techniques and templates at all levels, together with functional code, which engineers can easily match and apply to their application.

The ‘easy-to-find’ structure begins with a design application to demonstrate the key building blocks of FPGA design and how to connect them, enabling the experienced FPGA designer to quickly select the right design for their application, while providing the less experienced a ‘road map’ to solving their specific design problem.

Written in an informal and ‘easy-to-grasp’ style, this invaluable resource goes beyond the principles of FPGA s and hardware description languages to actually demonstrate how specific designs can be synthesized, simulated and downloaded onto an FPGA. In addition, the book provides advanced techniques to create ‘real world’ designs that fit the device required and which are fast and reliable to implement. An accompanying companion website contains code, test benches and simulation command files for ModelSim.

This book will be an indispensable, well-thumbed resource for FPGA designers of all levels of experience.

• A rich toolbox of practical FGPA design techniques at an engineer's finger tips
• Easy-to-find structure that allows the engineer to quickly locate the information to solve their FGPA design problem, and obtain the level of detail and understanding needed
• Includes accompanying companion website containing code, test benches and simulation files for ModelSim

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Design Recipes for FPGAs is an excellent volume for engineers who work with FPGAs either regularly or occasionally... the book provides a handy shelf reference with examples for many useful functional blocks, ranging from relatively small illustrative syntactic and structural examples to more complex concepts. Whether you work in VHDL occasionally or every day, you'll find practical help in this book." - Lewin Edwards, Design Engineer and Technical Author
