Master FPGA digital system design and implementation with Verilog and VHDL This practical guide explores the development and deployment of FPGA-based digital systems using the two most popular hardware description languages, Verilog and VHDL. Written by a pair of digital circuit design experts, the book offers a solid grounding in FPGA principles, practices, and applications and provides an overview of more complex topics. Important concepts are demonstrated through real-world examples, ready-to-run code, and inexpensive start-to-finish projects for both the Basys and Arty boards. Digital System Design with FPGA: Implementation Using Verilog and VHDL covers: • Field programmable gate array fundamentals • Basys and Arty FPGA boards • The Vivado design suite • Verilog and VHDL • Data types and operators • Combinational circuits and circuit blocks • Data storage elements and sequential circuits • Soft-core microcontroller and digital interfacing • Advanced FPGA applications • The future of FPGA “I joined Xilinx five years ago and have looked for a good, introductory book on FPGA-based design ever since because people have repeatedly asked me for my recommendation. Today, I found a brand new book to recommend to people wanting to learn about using programmable logic to design digital systems. It’s titled — Digital Systems Design with FPGA: Implementation Using Verilog and VHDL and…[it] will take you from the basics of digital design and logic into FPGAs; FPGA architecture including programmable logic, block RAM, DSP slices, FPGA clock management, and programmable I/O; hardware description languages with an equal emphasis on Verilog and VHDL; the Xilinx Vivado Design Environment; and then on to IP cores including the Xilinx MicroBlaze and PicoBlaze soft processors. The book ends with 24 advanced embedded design projects.” – Steve Leibson, Xcell Daily Blog
