Digital Design Using VHDL : A Systems Approach (美國原版)

William J. Dally, R. Curtis Harting, Tor M. Aamodt



This introductory textbook provides students with a system-level perspective and the tools they need to understand, analyze and design digital systems. Going beyond the design of simple combinational and sequential modules, it shows how such modules are used to build complete systems, reflecting real-world digital design. All the essential topics are covered, including design and analysis of combinational and sequential modules, as well as system timing and synchronization. It also teaches how to write VHDL-2008 HDL in a productive and maintainable style that enables CAD tools to do much of the tedious work. A complete introduction to digital design is given through clear explanations, extensive examples and online VHDL files. The teaching package is completed with lecture slides, labs and a solutions manual for instructors. Assuming no previous digital knowledge, this textbook is ideal for undergraduate digital design courses that will prepare students for modern digital practice.


這本入門教材為學生提供了系統層面的觀點和工具,幫助他們理解、分析和設計數位系統。超越了簡單的組合和時序模塊的設計,展示了這些模塊如何用於構建完整的系統,反映了現實世界的數位設計。涵蓋了所有必要的主題,包括組合和時序模塊的設計和分析,以及系統的時序和同步。它還教授如何以高效且易於維護的方式撰寫 VHDL-2008 HDL,使 CAD 工具能夠完成大部分繁瑣的工作。通過清晰的解釋、豐富的示例和在線 VHDL 文件,提供了對數位設計的完整介紹。教學套件還包括講義、實驗和解答手冊供教師使用。假設沒有先前的數位知識,這本教材非常適合準備學生進入現代數位實踐的本科數位設計課程。
