i cant believe i overlooked such a perfect book for such a long time. most of us in college try to learn vhdl by tutorials i guess, but they are never enough. By the way, i must mention that this is not the book you learn digital design concept. This is just for the vhdl part- which is the best-. and when you are ready to take a next.

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 designsMany circuits shown with internal details at the transistor-level, as in real integrated circuitsActual 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

Teaching or learning FPGA-based digital circuit design is never easy. However, once a teacher, a student or a practicing engineer equip him or herself with such a book, life will be much easier. The book includes a self-contained part on VHDL language description with a large number of examples. These examples provide applications using most of the building blocks of combinational and sequential digital circuits. The examples are discussed, with implementable VHDL code. The code is explained in a leisurely pedantic and simple manner that is quite easy to understand. The design examples are provided with synthesis, simulation and elaborate comments. A chapter that covers SPICE provides a background on circuit simulation.

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.

My expectations were fulfilled 100%, thank you prof. Pedroni.

This is an excellent book for use in a formal digital design class taught to 2nd year undergrads in a university setting.

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.

While reading *Digital Electronics and Design with VHDL*, I was happy to find a
text that had such grounded roots. A good amount of the examples are directly
applicable to todays digital electronics engineer in the worlds of ASIC, FPGA
and general PCB design.

I've separated out this review into separate sections to cover two different
views of the book: Digital Electronics and VHDL. While the title suggests they
are presented hand-in-hand, upon further inspection they are, indeed, mutually
exclusive. Digital Electronics encompasses the first 18 chapters followed by
VHDL for the last 5 chapters.

## Digital Electronics ##

The main emphasis of this book is clearly on the digital electronics aspect.
Starting with a very detailed look at the history of the transistor and
integrated circuit (IC) technology, the book is packed with solid information
without getting lost in too many details.

Both sequential and combinatorial logic is covered in full detail with
accompanying transistor-level schematics and even wafer-level cross-sections
when applicable.

All examples inline with the text are titled, well diagrammed and explained,
and provides a solution for greater understanding.

The exercises at the end of each chapter are all very relevant questions which
professionals face in the real world (power consumption, timing analysis,
fan-out, etc). Moreover, each exercise is appropriately titled to provide a
reference to the applicable section of text.

## VHDL ##

VHDL is introduced in Chapter 19 of the book, and is covered in quite a hurry.
It seems that the audience for this section of the book is someone who has
already had some experience with VHDL as a language and is not a complete
novice.

While I am happy the text focuses mainly on synthesizable designs that actually
work in a programmable logic device, the examples are riddled with
inconsistencies and even bad practice. For example, the author explains how
`STD_LOGIC` is the industry standard but the examples use `BIT`. Another
example uses a `BUFFER` which is not good practice and may cause synthesis
issues. Lastly, small problems in examples such as using an `INTEGER` for a
bit width generic input instead of a `POSITIVE`.

I was delighted to see a good description of the `NUMERIC_STD` package
versus the `STD_LOGIC_ARITH` package, and ecstatic to see the emphasis
put on using the IEEE accepted `NUMERIC_STD` package. On the other
hand, the author doesn't do a good job describing behavioral versus structural
design and never performs any file IO.

Lastly, the state machines in the examples, while syntactically correct, are
not very well written. The code presented is obviously for a demonstrable
purpose and not useful for extensibility or beneficial towards the advancement
of anyone's career in programmable logic.

## Conclusions ##

Overall, I feel the book deserved 3.5-stars, but there are a few caveats. If I
were to rate this book on the *Digital Electronics* aspect, I would bump up
the rating to be a full 5-stars. There is not one area for which I would not
use this as a desk reference as well as an immediate teaching tool for
beginners who need a good place to start.

On the other hand, if I were to rate this book strictly on the *VHDL* aspect,
I would have to take the rating down to 2-stars. It's great to see a reference
where the designs are synthesizable, but there are too many inconsistencies
within the code itself to make me feel comfortable using it as a solid
reference.

The book "Digital Electronics and Design with VHDL" was a good review of digital logic design, and a good review of the essential elements of VHDL.

For logic design, I consider it a review, only because other books show more worked examples with more detailed explanations.

For the VHDL section, several examples are offered that parallel the examples from the design section, which helps correlate to the design principles. Also, the VHDL examples can be more complicated or detailed, handling more bits in parallel than the logic designed by "hand". This shows the power of design using the higher level VHDL.
