The Designers Guide to VHDL The Designers Guide to VHDL 5.0 von 5 Sternen (2)
Derzeit nicht verfügbar.


November 1995
The Designer's Guide to VHDL is both a comprehensive manual for the language and an authoritative reference on its use in hardware design at all levels, from system level down to gate level. Using the IEEE standard for VHDL, the author presents the entire description language and builds a modeling methodology based on successful software engineering techniques. Requiring only a minimal background in programming, this is an excellent tutorial for anyone in computer architecture, digital systems engineering, or CAD. The book is organized so that it can either be read cover to cover for a comprehensive tutorial or be kept deskside as a reference to the language. Each chapter introduces a number of related concepts or language facilities and illustrates each one with examples. Scattered throughout the book are four case studies, which bring together preceding material in the form of extended worked examples. In addition, each chapter is followed by a set of rated exercises.

VHDL may sound like a new Internet language, but it really stands for VHSIC (Very High Speed Integrated Circuit) Hardware Definition Language. VHDL borrows ideas from software engineering (architectural, behavior, and formal models, as well as modular design) and is used to design today's custom integrated circuits, from cell phones to microwave ovens and even CPUs. Peter Ashenden's The Designer's Guide to VHDL shows you how to use this language to write a hardware design, which you can then test in a simulator before "synthesizing" it into an actual hardware design in silicon.

The book begins with the basics of VHDL, which, like any software language, has keywords, operators, flow control statements, and programming conventions. Next, the author introduces his first case study--a "pipelined multiplier accumulator," which simulates a CPU register. He then moves on to more complicated models, such as a design for a complete CPU (the DLX processor, which is used as a model for educating future CPU designers). More advanced aspects of VHDL follow, including guard signals, abstract data types, and even file I/O. A final case study (for a "queuing network") puts these components into practice. The book closes with a discussion of "synthesizers"--additional software tools that convert a VHDL specification into silicon--and how these tools impose design limits. The appendices include Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) enhancements to VHDL, which have increased the design language's power. Although most of us won't ever need to design our own integrated circuit, this book shows how it's done. Engineering students who need to master VHDL during a semester-length course, will find Ashenden's guide to be indispensable--and written in an accessible style rarely found in engineering texts.


"The second edition of The Designer's Guide to VHDL sets a new standard in VHDL texts. I am certain that you will find it a very valuable addition to your library." - From the foreword by Paul Menchini, Menchini & Associates -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The only VHDL book you need. 29. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I have a couple of other VHDL books but I can't find them, for some reason I have two of copies of 'The Designer's Guide to VHDL'. When reading this book it is apparent that Ashenden thoroughly understands VHDL - excellent examples and I really like the VHDL-93 viewpoint with the VHDL-87 differences sprinkled throughout. If you really want to learn to design first-class test benches, you need this book. It has text IO coverage and in depth information on components, configurations and packages.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Nothing comes close to this book. 2. März 1999
Before Ashenden there was Douglas Perry. Perry's book on VHDL (Second Edition) was pretty well written and handled HDL for synthesis quite well. After Perry, I was introduced to Ashenden's "The Designer's Guide to VHDL". This is by far the must have VHDL reference manual. Ask yourself, what is important in a good reference manual...the answer is well organized concepts, good examples and a thorough index! This book has it all. I have other VHDL books that just get dusty on my shelf, not this one! If I'm not using it, someone else usually wants to borrow it. If your looking for a great VHDL book...pick this one up or borrow it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Great Book for Learning VHDL 28. Juli 2000
This book has a very detailed and complete coverage of the VHDL langauge. The book is clearly geared to the beginner and serves as a great tutorial on the language, however the depth is good enough that even a seasoned VHDL programmer will find it of good benefit both at increasing their depth in the language and also as a desk reference. My main criticism of the book is that I found it somewhat verbose in description on certain topics. While the detail is needed on the more complex or subtle topics, it seems to drag on with some of the more trivial ideas. In any case, the good clearly wins out in an overall must have VHDL reference.
