Digital Electronics and Design with VHDL (Inglés) Tapa dura – 10 mar 2008
Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Digital Electronics and Design with VHDL offers a friendly presentation of the fundamental principles and practices of modern digital design. Unlike any other book in this field, transistor-level implementations are also included, which allow the readers to gain a solid understanding of a circuit's real potential and limitations, and to develop a realistic perspective on the practical design of actual integrated circuits.
Coverage includes the largest selection available of digital circuits in all categories (combinational, sequential, logical, or arithmetic); and detailed digital design techniques, with a thorough discussion on state-machine modeling for the analysis and design of complex sequential systems. Key technologies used in modern circuits are also described, including Bipolar, MOS, ROM/RAM, and CPLD/FPGA chips, as well as codes and techniques used in data storage and transmission. Designs are illustrated by means of complete, realistic applications using VHDL, where the complete code, comments, and simulation results are included.
This text is ideal for courses in Digital Design, Digital Logic, Digital Electronics, VLSI, and VHDL; and industry practitioners in digital electronics.
- Comprehensive coverage of fundamental digital concepts and principles, as well as complete, realistic, industry-standard designs
- Many circuits shown with internal details at the transistor-level, as in real integrated circuits
- Actual technologies used in state-of-the-art digital circuits presented in conjunction with fundamental concepts and principles
- Six chapters dedicated to VHDL-based techniques, with all VHDL-based designs synthesized onto CPLD/FPGA chips

The material contained between the two end-pages of this book facilitates the work expected by computer or electronic engineers. The book is a great addition to my library and I have to congratulate the author on a job well-done.
The first part (non-VHDL) of the book is really more material than the typical 1-semester digital design course can possibly cover - compare to something like Mano's text which contains a good bit less material overall. Therefore, an actual prof or lecturer is needed to assign the pertinent portions of the book for reading and problem-solving. The fascinating thing about this book is that it is not afraid to show the details of how digital systems are really implemented today - not just in idealized and abstract gates and K-maps. Again, if comparing to Mano's book, the actual transistor layouts are shown, examples of circuit optimization are given, and references to actual working designs are also provided (PowerPC603, MIPS, AMD K6, etc.) The chapters on interfaces, codes, etc. are also refreshing - typically digital design books for sophomore-level students do not include that kind of information.
All that information is great, but a college sophomore generally doesn't yet understand the details of a transistor's operation, hasn't yet learned to read schematic, doesn't get semiconductor physics, etc. In a digital design course there isn't even time to get into these details - there are too many fundamentals that need to be covered first. Digital design is one of the first few major-specific courses students take, after completing physics, calculus, chemistry, etc. So, the true value of this information becomes apparent only later. The sections on transistor physics in this book do not replace a formal class on the subject; but, when learning this stuff it is very helpful to look back on the Pedroni text as an intro; also, when going out into the "real" world or when taking a senior-level design course, the sections on interface standards become dramatically more valuable. Situations like this abound - Pedroni tries to link digital design with the other disciplines that need to be understood for students to work commercially.
Bottom line: if this book is required for your digital design class, consider yourself lucky, and don't sell the book at the end of the semester. If you're buying this to brush up on some stuff as a practicing engineer, there's probably better texts for that purpose. For self-study outside of the college/uni level - forget it, this book has simply too much to digest at once. For learning VHDL there are also better texts out there, such as Pedroni's own VHDL book, which I have also reviewed.
The book is divided into several sections which include general design techniques, VHDL syntax, combination and sequential logic, specific algorithms and hardware implementations of arithmetic operations (multiplication, division, etc) and even simple introductions to certain tools (such as spice). I feel that the large focus of the book is "Digital Design" and not specifically VHDL itself. The VHDL is included only out of necessity to supplement the digital design aspect.
Pedroni does a good job in emphasizing the different libraries available to most VHDL users (such as std_logic and numeric_std). Since choosing the correct libraries is probably the most important part of starting a project, the book does well to cover these in detail.
The only issue I had with the book was that it didn't delve very deeply into advanced usage of VHDL. It mainly focuses on synthesizable code, which is fine, but when it comes to verification and simulation, you may find yourself wanting. That's not to say that there isn't coverage of simulation within the text. For this reason, I would recommend this book as an introduction to designers.
As a previous reviewer mentioned, if judged as a VHDL book, it is merely a good introduction; however, if judged as a digital design book, it is quite good. For those who are just starting to learn about digital design or want to learn a HDL, I would definitely recommend this as the first or second text.
