For sophomore/junior-level courses in Digital/Logic and Digital Design Laboratory.


For schools that wish to introduce VHDL into their undergraduate computer engineering sequence, VHDL is a complex language that is worthy of a dedicated course; yet this is not a practical option in most institutions.  This companion text enables instructors to integrate the basic concepts of VHDL into existing courses.  It is designed to develop an intuition and a structured way of thinking about VHDL models without spending a great deal of time on advanced language features.  Yalamanchili gives students a thorough grounding in the basic concepts and language of VHDL, and encourages them to apply what they have learned using realistic examples.  Concepts are followed by examples and tutorials.
