Fundamentals of Digital Logic With VHDL Design teaches the basic design techniques for logic circuits. It emphasizes the synthesis of circuits and explains how circuits are implemented in real chips. Fundamental concepts are illustrated by using small examples, which are easy to understand. Then, a modular approach is used to show how larger circuits are designed. VHDL is used to demonstrate how the basic building blocks and larger systems are defined in a hardware description language, producing designs that can be implemented with modern CAD tools.
The book emphasizes the concepts that should be covered in an introductory course on logic design, focusing on:
It also includes chapters that deal with important, but more advanced topics:
Major changes in the second edition of the book include
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Numerous detailed examples, ranging from circuits with only a few basic logic elements to digital systems such as a simple processor.
An in-depth presentation of modern digital circuit technology with an emphasis on CMOS circuits and Programmable Logic Devices (CPLDs and FPGAs).
The IEEE standard VHDL language is an integral part of design techniques used throughout the book. The language is introduced gradually in a way that is easily understood by beginning designers.
Altera's advanced MAX+plusII CAD system (on CD-ROM) and a series of step-by-step tutorials are included. The CD-ROM also contains all design examples presented in the book.
The book is modern in that it emphasizes field programmable devices (FPDs). These are widely used in practice and students are likely to encounter them in their careers. The use of FPDs also grants students the opportunity to implement the designs given in the book in actual chips, in a laboratory setting.
