Książka w języku angielskim.The Designer`s Guide to VHDL is both a comprehensive manual for the language and an authorative reference on its use in hardware design at all levels, from the system level to the 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 backround in programming, this is an exellent tutorial for anyone in computer architecture, digital system engineering, or CAD.The book is organized so that it can be either read cover-to-cover for a comprehensive tutorial or kept deskside as a reference to the language. Each chapter introduces a number or 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. All of the examples and case studies, complete with test drivers for running the VHDL code, are available via the WWW. In addition, each chapter is followed by a set of rated exercises.
