**Circuit Design with VHDL by Volnei A. Pedroni**

**Book Description**

This textbook teaches VHDL using system examples combined with programmable logic and supported by laboratory exercises. While other textbooks concentrate only on language features, Circuit Design with VHDL offers a fully integrated presentation of VHDL and design concepts by including a large number of complete design examples, illustrative circuit diagrams, a review of fundamental design concepts, fully explained solutions, and simulation results. The text presents the information concisely yet completely, discussing in detail all indispensable features of the VHDL synthesis. The book is organized in a clear progression, with the first part covering the circuit level, treating foundations of VHDL and fundamental coding, and the second part covering the system level (units that might be located in a library for code sharing, reuse, and partitioning), expanding upon the earlier chapters to discuss system coding.

**In summary**, in Part I is discussed the entire background and coding techniques of

VHDL, which includes the following:

Code structure: libraries, entity, architecture (chapter 2)

Data types (chapter 3)

Operators and attributes (chapter 4)

Concurrent statements and concurrent code (chapter 5)

Sequential statements and sequential code (chapter 6)

Objects: signals, variables, constants (chapter 7)

Design of finite state machines (chapter 8) And, finally, additional circuit designs are presented (chapter 9).

Then, in Part II is simply add new building blocks, which are intended mainly for

library allocation, to the material already presented. The structure of Part II is the

following:

Packages and components (chapter 10)

Functions and procedures (chapter 11)

Finally, additional system designs are presented (chapter 12).
