This is the third edition of the best-selling VHDL reference in the world. VHDL is the IEEE standard hardware description language, used by electronics designers to model and simulate complex digital circuits. Where previous editions have focused on the language itself, this book adds material on applications.

The complete user's guide to VHDL. VHDL is firmly entrenched as the universal communication medium for computer-aided design. In this comprehensive guide, updated and expanded to reflect the very latest design and synthesis methodology, expert Doug Perry guides you through the complex process of creating a VHDL design: simulating and synthesizing; placing and routing; using VITAL simulation to verify the final result. Whether you're a VHDL veteran or just getting acquainted with the language, this sourcebook will have you writing and verifying concise, efficient VHDL descriptions of hardware designs in surprisingly little time. And a detailed example walks you through a small CPU design from the VHDL capture to VITAL simulation, honing your knowledge in preparation for your own high-level design flow. A handy desktop reference as well a a hadns-on guide, VHDL also contains: a listing of the IEEE 1164 STD-LOGIC package used throughout the book; useful tables and figures; instructions for reading the Bachus-Naur format (NFF) descriptions found in the VHDL Language Reference Manual.About the Author:
