Peter J. Ashenden is an Adjunct Associate Professor at Adelaide University.VHDL, the IEEE standard hardware description language for describing digital electronic systems, has recently been revised. This book has become a standard in the industry for learning the features of VHDL and using it to verify hardware designs.
This third edition is the first comprehensive book on the market to address the new features of VHDL-2008. * First comprehensive book on VHDL to incorporate all new features of VHDL-2008, the latest release of the VHDL standard...helps readers get up to speed quickly with new features of the new standard. * Presents a structured guide to the modeling facilities offered by VHDL...shows how VHDL functions to help design digital systems. * Includes extensive case studies and source code used to develop testbenches and case study examples..helps readers gain maximum facility with VHDL for design of digital systems.The definitive guide to the most important features of VHDL-2008!"The Designer's Guide to VHDL, Third Edition presents a structured guide to the language, showing how it can be used for the design of digital systems. Since modeling a system using a hardware description language is essentially a software design exercise, Peter Ashenden draws on his extensive software engineering experience to show readers how to put this into practice using VHDL, This book is an invaluable reference for practicing engineers and can also be used as a textbook in courses on digital design, emphasizing VHDL."--BOOK JACKET.
