Fundamentals of Digital Logic with VHDL Design

  title={Fundamentals of Digital Logic with VHDL Design},
  author={Stephen Dean Brown and Zvonko G. Vranesic},
This book is intended for an introductory course in digital logic design, which is a basic course in most Electrical and Computer Engineering programs. The authors provide a desirable balance between classical and modern design approaches. Basic concepts are introduced using simple logic circuits, which are designed by using both manual techniques and modern CAD-tool-based methods. Having established the fundamental concepts, more complex, realistic circuits are then designed with the CAD tools… 

Digital Design Using VHDL: A Systems Approach

This introductory textbook provides students with a system-level perspective and the tools they need to understand, analyze and design digital systems, as well as system timing and synchronization, reflecting real-world digital design.


This paper describes the rationale for devel- oping custom graphical simulators for courses in digital logic and computer architecture, discusses key features of these simulators in relation to the

Web-oriented educational system for digital circuits modeling and simulation

To foster students learning on digital logics and digital circuits design, theory lessons should be closely intertwined with practical exercises and experimentation. In this paper, we will present a


This paper primarily deals with the construction of arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU) using Hardware Description Language (HDL) using Xilinx ISE 9.2i and implement them on Field Programmable Gate Arrays

With the increasing popularity of Programmable Logic Devices (PLDs), Hardware Description Languages, and software synthesis tools, on one end of the spectrum one can complete the design of a CPU at a

Introducing Field Programmable Gate Arrays Into Sophomore Digital Circuits Course

The experiences have shown that during the laboratory sessions while using FPGA, the students do not have to worry about the status of discrete components, prototyping boards, and wiring integrity, and instead, they think about whether they have designed their circuits correctly.

The Innovative Effects Of Hdl And Fpga On Digital Hardware Design Education In Eet Programs

From the design procedures of three typical digital circuits, it can be concluded that the best way to teach HDL and FPGA in EET programs is to integrate HDL andFPGA into all digital hardware design courses, from entry level to advanced level, rather than open an independent course.

Synthesis of control units with field-programmable logic devices

Main design and optimization methods applied in case of these two types of control units are presented in the main part of the chapter.

Design and VHDL Implementation of an Application-Specific Instruction Set Processor

This work designed and implemented an ASIP processor in VHDL hardware description language, based on goals that make the processor easily customizable, and to have a low resource consumption in a Systemon-Chip (SoC) design.

Hardware description language (HDL): An efficient approach to device independent designs for VLSI market segments

This paper focuses on using VHDL, to design an application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) liquid dispenser controller system while targeting the device independent architecture (Ultra 3700 CPLD series) for synthesis, optimization and fitting to realize the design.
