VHDL Coding Styles and Methodologiesby Ben Cohen
VHDL Coding Styles and Methodologies, Second Edition is a follow-up book to the first edition of the same book and to VHDL Answers to Frequently Asked Questions, first and second editions. This new edition provides practical information on reusable software methodologies for the design of bus functional models for testbenches. It provides guidelines in the use of VHDL for synthesis. All VHDL code described in the book is on a companion CD, which also includes the GNU toolsite with EMACS language-sensitive editor (with VHDL, Verilog, and other language templates), and TSHELL tools that emulate a Unix shell. Model Technology graciously included an evaluation version of ModelSim, a recognized industry standard VHDL/Verilog compiler and simulator that supports easy viewing of the models under analysis, along with many debug features. In addition, Synplicity is kindly making available an evaluation version of Synplicity, a very efficient, user-friendly and easy-to-use FPGA synthesis tool. Synplify provides a user with both the RTL and gate-level views of the synthesized model, and a performance report of the design. Optimization mechanisms are provided in the tool.
Intended for professional engineers as well as students, it is organized in thirteen chapters, each covering a separate aspect of the language, with complete examples. It provides a practical approach to learning VHDL. Combining methodologies and coding styles, along with VHDL rules, leads the reader in the right direction from the beginning.
