From Barnes & NobleTo be truly effective in designing tomorrow's electronics, it's not enough to master today's new processor-centric, integration-focused techniques. You'll need to know how to implement them with your hardware description language of choice. If that language is Verilog, here's the book you need: modern, accessible, and packed with Verilog examples.
Ashenden introduces a start-to-finish, model-based design process; then walks step-by-step through basic techniques for designing combinational and sequential circuits. He reviews physical design issues related to ASICSs, FPGAs, and other modern ICs. Next, he presents a detailed introduction to embedded system processors and software instructions; techniques for encoding and storing instructions, and connecting processors with memory. There's a full chapter on I/O controllers; and another on designing accelerators -- complete with an extended example.
(By the way, for those who prefer VHDL to Verilog, Ashenden’s written a companion book with the same content, substituting VHDL examples for Verilog throughout.) Bill Camarda, from the December 2007 Read Only
