Overview

A Complete Toolkit for Designing Embedded Cores and Utilizing Those Cores in an Embedded System

A landmark guide in digital system design, Embedded Core Design with FPGAs equips today's computer engineers with everything they need to design embedded cores and apply those cores in a state-of-the-art embedded system. This practical resource brings together logic design, computer architecture, Verilog, FPGAs, Hardware/Software design, and SoCs, explaining how engineers can draw on their computer engineering background to achieve cutting-edge embedded designs.

Renowned design expert and educator Zainalabedin Navabi first covers the basics of logic design, RT Level Verilog, computer architectures, and the architecture of modern field programmable devices. He then explores the design of utility cores that are used for high-level core-based designs, with specific focus on existing Altera cores. Finally, he describes higher-end design methodologies, including design of hardware/software systems, CPU configurations, embedded systems, and the utilization of various Altera Nios II processors.

Embedded Core Design with FPGAs features:

  • A full array of design aids, including Verilog, FPLD structures, design and programming environments, and software and hardware tools
  • The latest embedded system design techniques, including use of high-level integrated environments, SOPC development tools, utilizing existing processor cores, and developing your own customized processor
  • A clear focus on utilizing Altera's new DE series and UP3 development boards and design software, including SOPC Builder and IDE software design environment

Meet the Author

Zainalabedin Navabi, Ph.D., is professor of electrical and computer engineering at Northeastern University. Dr. Navabi is the author of several textbooks and computer based trainings on VHDL, Verilog and related tools and environments. Dr. Navabi's involvement with hardware description languages began in 1976 when he started the development of a register-transfer level simulator for one of the very first Hardware Description Languages (HDLs). In 1981 he completed the development of a synthesis tool that generated MOS layout from an RTL description. Since 1981, Dr. Navabi has been involved in the design, definition and implementation of HDLs. He has written numerous papers on the application of HDLs in simulation, synthesis and test of digital systems. He started one of the first full HDL courses at Northeastern University in 1990. Since then he has conducted many short courses and tutorials on this subject in the United States and abroad. In addition to being a professor, he is also a consultant to Electronic Design Automation (EDA) companies. Dr. Navabi received his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Arizona in 1978 and 1981, and his B.S. from the University of Texas at Austin in 1975. He is a senior member of IEEE, and a member of IEEE Computer Society, ASEE, and ACM. Dr. Navabi is the author of six books on various aspects of digital system design automation.
