Programmable Logic Open Source Textbook

Programmable Logic Open Source Textbook

This book will cover the design and implementation of programmable logic devices (PLDs) using the Verilog, VHDL, and System C Hardware description languages. It is not meant to be a comprehensive reference to these languages, but more of a quick guide that covers the parts essential to developing effective digital designs. This book will also cover programming a variety of specific programmable devices, such as FPGA and CPLD devices. Contents intended to be covered are: programming HDL, concurrent programming and synthesis. A previous knowledge of programming a high-level language is assumed. Knowledge of semiconductors is helpful but not necessary. Previous experience or knowledge of digital circuits is must. This book is in an extremely early state of development, and any contributions would be a big help.
