ISBN: 0963013351
Release Date: 2012
Genre: Microprocessors

If you have the right tools, designing a microprocessor shouldnt be complicated. The Verilog hardware description language (HDL) is one such tool. It can enable you to depict, simulate, and synthesise an electronic design, and thus increase your productivity by reducing the overall workload associated with a given project. Monte Dalrymples Microprocessor Design Using Verilog HDL is a practical guide to processor design in the real world. It presents the Verilog HDL in an easily digestible fashion and serves as a thorough introduction about reducing a computer architecture and instruction set to practice. Youre led through the microprocessor design process from start to finish, and essential topics ranging from writing in Verilog to debugging and testing are laid bare. The book details the following, and more: Verilog HDL Review: data types, bit widths/labelling, operations, statements, and design hierarchy; Verilog Coding Style: files vs. modules, indentation, and design organisation; Design Work: instruction set architecture, external bus interface, and machine cycle; Microarchitecture: design spreadsheet and essential worksheets (eg: Operation, Instruction Code, and Next State); Writing in Verilog: choosing encoding, assigning states in a state machine, and files (eg: defines.v, hierarchy.v, machine.v); Debugging, Verification, and Testing: debugging requirements, verification requirements, testing requirements, and the test bench; Post Simulation: enhancements and reduction to practice.

Embedded SoPC Design with Nios II Processor and VHDL Examples

Author: Pong P. Chu
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9781118008881
Release Date: 2011-09-21
Genre: Computers

The book is divided into four major parts. Part I covers HDL constructs and synthesis of basic digital circuits. Part II provides an overview of embedded software development with the emphasis on low–level I/O access and drivers. Part III demonstrates the design and development of hardware and software for several complex I/O peripherals, including PS2 keyboard and mouse, a graphic video controller, an audio codec, and an SD (secure digital) card. Part IV provides three case studies of the integration of hardware accelerators, including a custom GCD (greatest common divisor) circuit, a Mandelbrot set fractal circuit, and an audio synthesizer based on DDFS (direct digital frequency synthesis) methodology. The book utilizes FPGA devices, Nios II soft–core processor, and development platform from Altera Co., which is one of the two main FPGA manufactures. Altera has a generous university program that provides free software and discounted prototyping boards for educational institutions (details at http://www.altera.com/university ). The two main educational prototyping boards are known as DE1 ($99) and DE2 ($269). All experiments can be implemented and tested with these boards. A board combined with this book becomes a “turn–key” solution for the SoPC design experiments and projects. Most HDL and C codes in the book are device independent and can be adapted by other prototyping boards as long as a board has similar I/O configuration.

FSM based Digital Design using Verilog HDL

Author: Peter Minns
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 0470987618
Release Date: 2008-04-30
Genre: Technology & Engineering

As digital circuit elements decrease in physical size, resulting in increasingly complex systems, a basic logic model that can be used in the control and design of a range of semiconductor devices is vital. Finite State Machines (FSM) have numerous advantages; they can be applied to many areas (including motor control, and signal and serial data identification to name a few) and they use less logic than their alternatives, leading to the development of faster digital hardware systems. This clear and logical book presents a range of novel techniques for the rapid and reliable design of digital systems using FSMs, detailing exactly how and where they can be implemented. With a practical approach, it covers synchronous and asynchronous FSMs in the design of both simple and complex systems, and Petri-Net design techniques for sequential/parallel control systems. Chapters on Hardware Description Language cover the widely-used and powerful Verilog HDL in sufficient detail to facilitate the description and verification of FSMs, and FSM based systems, at both the gate and behavioural levels. Throughout, the text incorporates many real-world examples that demonstrate designs such as data acquisition, a memory tester, and passive serial data monitoring and detection, among others. A useful accompanying CD offers working Verilog software tools for the capture and simulation of design solutions. With a linear programmed learning format, this book works as a concise guide for the practising digital designer. This book will also be of importance to senior students and postgraduates of electronic engineering, who require design skills for the embedded systems market.

Designing Digital Computer Systems with Verilog

Author: David J. Lilja
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 1139455818
Release Date: 2004-12-02
Genre: Computers

This book serves both as an introduction to computer architecture and as a guide to using a hardware description language (HDL) to design, model and simulate real digital systems. The book starts with an introduction to Verilog - the HDL chosen for the book since it is widely used in industry and straightforward to learn. Next, the instruction set architecture (ISA) for the simple VeSPA (Very Small Processor Architecture) processor is defined - this is a real working device that has been built and tested at the University of Minnesota by the authors. The VeSPA ISA is used throughout the remainder of the book to demonstrate how behavioural and structural models can be developed and intermingled in Verilog. Although Verilog is used throughout, the lessons learned will be equally applicable to other HDLs. Written for senior and graduate students, this book is also an ideal introduction to Verilog for practising engineers.

Design Through Verilog HDL

Author: B. Bala Tripura Sundari
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 0471441481
Release Date: 2004
Genre: Computers

A comprehensive resource on Verilog HDL for beginners and experts Large and complicated digital circuits can be incorporated into hardware by using Verilog, a hardware description language (HDL). A designer aspiring to master this versatile language must first become familiar with its constructs, practice their use in real applications, and apply them in combinations in order to be successful. Design Through Verilog HDL affords novices the opportunity to perform all of these tasks, while also offering seasoned professionals a comprehensive resource on this dynamic tool. Describing a design using Verilog is only half the story: writing test–benches, testing a design for all its desired functions, and how identifying and removing the faults remain significant challenges. Design Through Verilog HDL addresses each of these issues concisely and effectively. The authors discuss constructs through illustrative examples that are tested with popular simulation packages, ensuring the subject matter remains practically relevant. Other important topics covered include: Primitives Gate and Net delays Buffers CMOS switches State machine design Further, the authors focus on illuminating the differences between gate level, data flow, and behavioral styles of Verilog, a critical distinction for designers. The book′s final chapters deal with advanced topics such as timescales, parameters and related constructs, queues, and switch level design. Each chapter concludes with exercises that both ensure readers have mastered the present material and stimulate readers to explore avenues of their own choosing. Written and assembled in a paced, logical manner, Design Through Verilog HDL provides professionals, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates with a one–of–a–kind resource.
