Overview

Whether you are a student looking for a dynamic, real-world introduction to an industry-standard HDL, or a professional engineer in need of a fast, effective approach to VHDL, VHDL for Programmable Logic will get you up to speed.

This hands-on tutorial explains the architecture, features, and technologies of programmable logic and teaches how to write VHDL code for synthesis. Many practical design examples focus on state machine design, counters, shifters, arithmetic circuits, control logic, FIFOs, and other "glue logic" that designers typically implement in programmable logic.

FEATURES/BENEFITS

  • Practical design examples focus on state machine design, counters, shifters, arithmetic circuits, control logic, FIFOs, and other "glue logic" that designers typically implement in programmable logic.
  • Included with the book is a CD-ROM containing Cypress Semiconductor's Warp2, a fully functional professional VHDL synthesis tool for Windows PCs and Sun workstations.
    • Warp2 software does both CPLD and FPGA synthesis, as well as fitting, placement, and routing.
    • It includes an interactive waveform simulator that performs functional simulation of CPLD design.
    • Allows professionals to use VHDL to design, simulate, and implement digital systems in programmable logic.
  • System Requirements for Warp2:
    • Windows PC 486 or Pentium processor; 16 MB RAM; 60 MB hard disk space;
    • Windows 3.1 or Windows 95
    • Sun Workstation
    • SPARC CPU; 16 MB RAM; 60 MB hard disk space; SunOS 4.1.1 or later

As both an introductory text and practical design guide, this book has not been beat. The CD has many comprehensive examples completely worked out, including real-world designs from memory controllers and FIFOs to a complete 100 Base-T4 Network Repeater.
