DIGITAL SYSTEMS DESIGN USING VERILOG integrates coverage of logic design principles, Verilog as a hardware design language, and FPGA implementation to help electrical and computer engineering students master the process of designing and testing new hardware configurations. A Verilog equivalent of authors Roth and John's previous successful text using VHDL, this practical book presents Verilog constructs side-by-side with hardware, encouraging students to think in terms of desired hardware while writing synthesizable Verilog. Following a review of the basic concepts of logic design, the authors introduce the basics of Verilog using simple combinational circuit examples, followed by models for simple sequential circuits. Subsequent chapters ask readers to tackle more and more complex designs.
- The first chapter presents a summary of the fundamentals of digital design to refresh readers' knowledge and prepare them for the rest of the book.
- A wide range of important digital design concepts, including Algorithmic State Machine (ASM) charts, micro-programming, one-hot design, design for synthesis, testing, etc., are covered.
- Many digital system design examples, ranging in complexity from a simple binary adder to a microprocessor, help readers learn design skills.
- Steps in the design flow are clearly illustrated and explained.
- Two chapters (Chapters 3 and 6) treat the basics of all programmable logic devices and provide details of synthesis, mapping, and routing to FPGAs.
- Materials are presented generically, rather than attached to a specific vendor or product family.
- The authors help students develop the design skill of putting together bigger designs from smaller pieces.
- A unique chapter on testing presents information on Built In Self-Test (BIST), Boundary Scan testing, and LFSRs.
