Electronic systems based on digital principles are becoming ubiquitous. A good design approach to these systems is essential and a top-down methodology is favoured. Such an approach is vastly simplified by the use of computer modeling to describe the systems. VHDL is a formal language which allows a designer to model the behaviours and structure of a digital circuit on a computer before implementation. qDigital System Design with VHDLq is intended both for students on Digital Design courses and practitioners who would like to integrate digital design and VHDL synthesis in the workplace. Its unique approach combines the principles of digital design with a guide to the use of VHDL. Synthesis issues are discussed and practical guidelines are provided for improving simulation accuracy and performance. Features: a practical perspective is obtained by the inclusion of real-life examples an emphasis on software engineering practices encourages clear coding and adequate documentation of the process demonstrates the effects of particular coding styles on synthesis and simulation efficiency covers the major VHDL standards includes an appendix with examples in VerilogFor the benefit of human beings, strings of bits may be grouped into sets of three or four and written using octal (base 8) or ... The principle of twoa#39;s complement notation is that the code for -b, where b is a binary number represented using n bits, is the code given by 2aquot;-b. ... formats for 32, 64 and 128 bit floating-point numbers, with special patterns for ApAdAd and the results of invalid operations, such as V-l .
