"No matter what your current level of expertise, nothing will have you writing and verifying concise, efficient VHDL descriptions of hardware designs as fast - or as painlessly - as this classic tutorial from Doug Perry. Beginners will find it an invaluable learning tool, and experienced pros will keep it on their desk as a trusted reference." Perry teaches VHDL through a series of hundreds of practical, detailed examples, gradually increasing in complexity until you're capable of designing a fully functional CPU. The new Fourth Edition has been completely updated with all of the VHDL codes used in the examples changed to reflect today's faster and more efficient design methods.

A clear, step-by-step guide to designing integrated circuits using VHDL. Written by a practitioner for practitioners, this comprehensive resource features a top-down approach that is easy to understand. It takes the reader from the basics to complex modeling techniques, with real-world examples, sample designs, and extensive graphics clearly illustrating each step of the process.
