Advanced Digital Design with the Verilog HDL, 2/e (IE-Paperback)

Michael D. Cilletti






DescriptionThis book builds on the student's background from a first course in logic design and focuses on developing, verifying, and synthesizing designs of digital circuits. The Verilog language is introduced in an integrated, but selective manner, only as needed to support design examples (includes appendices for additional language details). It addresses the design of several important circuits used in computer systems, digital signal processing, image processing, and other applications.




  • Provides a brief review of basic principles in combinational and sequential logic
  • Focuses on modern digital design methodology
  • Demonstrates the utility of ASM and ASMD charts for behavioral modeling
  • Clearly distinguishes between synthesizable and nonsynthesizable loops
  • Provides practical treatment of timing analysis, fault simulation, testing, and design for testability, with examples
  • Provides several problems with a wide range of difficulty after each chapter
  • Combines a solution manual with an on-line repository of additional worked exercises
  • Lists an index of all models developed in the examples
  • Includes a set of FPGA-based, lab-ready exercises linked to the book (e.g. arithmetic and logic unit (ALU), programmable lock, a keypad scanner with a FIFO, a serial communications link with error correction, an SRAM controller, and first in, first out (FIFO) memory, RISC CPU, and FIFO)

    New to This Edition
