FPGA Systems Design and Practice: Design, Synthesis, Verification, and Prototyping in Verilog HDL
With the advance of semiconductor and communication industry, the use of system-on-chip (SoC) has become an essential technique to reduce product costs. The development of a good understanding of the key stages of the hardware description language (HDL) design flow based on cell-based libraries or field-programmable gate array (FPGA) devices becomes essential. This book addresses the needs for such a topic based on Verilog HDL and FPGAs. The most important features of this book include HDL-based design has become an essential technique for modern digital systems. This book focuses on developing, verifying, and synthesizing designs of practical digital systems using the most widely used hardware description Language: Verilog HDL and FPGAs. The main features of this book include: • Explaining how to perform synthesis and verification to achieve optimized synthesis results and compiler times • Illustrating the entire design and verification flow using an FPGA case study • Emphasizing design/implementation trade-off options, with coverage of ASICs and FPGAs • Providing plentiful worked examples and review questions in each section for readers to test their understanding of the related topics • Giving readers deeper understanding with plentiful review questions in each section and end-of-chapter problems • Incorporating many case studies to help the reader grasp the essentials of practical digital systems to be designed using Verilog HDL and FPGAs • Highlighting Verilog HDL syntax throughout the book to facilitate readers to refer the desired syntax as they need • Printing all keywords in boldface throughout the book to emphasize the language structures and improve the readability of Verilog HDL modules This book is the ideal textbook for the following courses: Digital System Design, FPGA System Designs and Practices, Advanced Digital Systems Design, and the like. In addition, it can be used as a self-studying or professional reference book in this field.
