Electrical Engineering Hardware Description Languages Concepts and Principles A volume in the IEEE Press Series on Microelectronic Systems Stuart K. Tewksbury and Joe E. Brewer, Series Editors Hardware description languages (HDLs) hold the key to future processor designs, but until now no book has offered a clear analysis of the basic principles underlying HDLs. Hardware Description Languages is the first book to unlock the often hidden science of HDLs along with their origins and basic concepts. This indispensable guide explains HDLs and includes an insightful overview of the foremost HDLs of the past three decades, from "Computer Design Language" (CDL) to "Very High Speed Integrated Circuit" (VHSIC) to "VHSIC Hardware Description Language" (VHDL). To improve both your knowledge and digital designs of HDL fundamentals, this valuable book features these essential topics:

  • A critical review of VHDL and Verilog
  • Accurate modeling of hardware
  • Distributed simulation of behavior models
  • New semantics for transport delay

Hardware Description Languages is written for practicing electronic CAD engineers, researchers in simulation and verification of electronic CAD, graduate and doctoral students in computer design, and undergraduates specializing in electronic hardware design.
