The VHDL examples given in the book are largely self-explanatory, and students can understand them easily.

The appendix is written in storylike style that should help the reader to grasp the material more quickly. It can be used on most types of popular computers.

Chapter 4 deals with the synthesis broqn combinational circuits.

In the book, we provide examples of design using schematic capture, but we emphasize the HDL-based design vranesid it is the most efficient design method to use in practice.

Fundamental concepts are illustrated by using small examples, which are easy to understand. This feature allows us to illustrate the ways in which the architecture of the target device affects a designer’s circuit.

This chapter shows how the basic gates are built using transistors and presents various factors that affect circuit performance. Also, the manual techniques provide an illustration of the types of manipulations that are performed by CAD tools, giving students an appreciation of the benefits provided by design automation.

International Edition Textbooks may bear a label Not for sale in the U. This state-of-the-art digital vrajesic design package has earned an industry-wide reputation as being among the most sophisticated and user-friendly packages available. Additional problems, suitable for teaching purposes, test questions, and homework problems are available on the authors’ World Wide Web site.


Shows definite wear, and perhaps considerable marking on inside. It highlights problems that are often encountered in practice and indicates how they can be overcome.

An instructor who favors a more traditional approach may cover Chapters 2 and 4 in succession.

Fundamentals of Digital Logic With Vhdl Design

To make this approach possible, we have organized the VHDL material in a modular style that is conducive to self-study. We use the two most popular types of PLDs for targeting of designs: VHDL-specified designs of these vraneslc are included. Chapter 6 presents combinational circuits that are used as building blocks. This chapter illustrates how VHDL can be used to specify the desired functionality and how CAD tools provide a mechanism for developing the required circuits.

More than homework problems are provided in the book. This book is intended for an introductory course in digital logic design, which is a basic course in most electrical and computer engineering programs. Dan Vranesic produced a substantial amount of artwork. The emphasis is on the latest technologies, with particular focus on CMOS technology and programmable logic devices. Used book in good condition.

It also gives the reader a first glimpse at VHDL, as an example of a hardware description language that may be used to specify the logic vhel. What makes Biblio different? While this treatment is not exhaustive, it provides a good indication of the main characteristics of such circuits. Having established the basic concepts, more complex examples are then provided, using the CAD tools.

Chapter 2 introduces the basic aspects of logic circuits.

Sign In Register Help Cart. Chapter 11 introduces the topic of testing. The material in Chapters 2 and 4 introduces Boolean algebra, combinational logic circuits, and basic minimization techniques. If there is an accompanying laboratory, vbdl a number of design examples in the book are suitable for laboratory experiments.


Use of the software is fully integrated into the book so that students have the capability of trying, firsthand, all design examples. Second, circuits are implemented in PLDs by end-user programming. However, the emphasis is on programmable logic devices PLDs. It discusses the key steps in the design process and explains how CAD tools can be used to automate many of the required tasks. VHDL is a complex language so it is introduced gradually in the book.

We also want to acknowledge the role of Eric Munson who was instrumental in convincing us vrown we should embark on this project. VHDL is a complex language, which some instructors feel is too hard for beginning students to grasp.

A book that covers a large number of topics is not easy to use in a classroom setting, particularly if the topics are not covered in sufficient depth.

Then Chapter 3 discusses the implementation technology details, before proceeding with the minimization techniques and other types of gates in Chapter 4.
