FPGA Prototyping by Verilog Examples: Xilinx Spartan-3 Version
DescriptionFPGA Prototyping Using Verilog Examples will provide you with a hands-on introduction to Verilog synthesis and FPGA programming through a “learn by doing” approach. By following the clear, easy-to-understand templates for code development and the numerous practical examples, you can quickly develop and simulate a sophisticated digital circuit, realize it on a prototyping device, and verify the operation of its physical implementation. This introductory text that will provide you with a solid foundation, instill confidence with rigorous examples for complex systems and prepare you for future development tasks.

Appendix A: Sample Verilog templates.
- It uses a learning-by-doing approach to introduce the concepts and techniques for HDL, synthesis, and FPGA
- It provides a collection of clelar, easy-to-folloow templates for quick code development
- It contains a large number of practical examples to illustrate and reinforce the design concepts and techniques. All examples can be implemented and tested on a prototyping board.
- The codes provided follow strict design guidelines and prepare the reader for developing large, complex systems in the future.
- Most codes were written in a device-independent and software-neutral fashion and are not tied to a particular device or synthesis software package
- The book contains four chapters for the Xilinx PicoBlaze soft-core microcontroller
- The book covers the design of all I/O modules of the Digilent Basys prototyping board and has prepared constraint files, project files, and configuration files. When used with this board, the book and board combo becomes a self-contained "turn-key" solution for introductory and advanced digital design experiments and projects.
