Publisher Comments:

Electrical Engineering Hardware Description Languages Concepts and Principles A volume in the IEEE Press Series on Microelectronic Systems Stuart K. Tewksbury and Joe E. Brewer, Series Editors Hardware description languages (HDLs) hold the key to future processor designs, but until now no book has offered a clear analysis of the basic principles underlying HDLs. Hardware Description Languages is the first book to unlock the often hidden science of HDLs along with their origins and basic concepts. This indispensable guide explains HDLs and includes an insightful overview of the foremost HDLs of the past three decades, from "Computer Design Language" (CDL) to "Very High Speed Integrated Circuit" (VHSIC) to "VHSIC Hardware Description Language" (VHDL). To improve both your knowledge and digital designs of HDL fundamentals, this valuable book features these essential topics:
  • A critical review of VHDL and Verilog
  • Accurate modeling of hardware
  • Distributed simulation of behavior models
  • New semantics for transport delay
Hardware Description Languages is written for practicing electronic CAD engineers, researchers in simulation and verification of electronic CAD, graduate and doctoral students in computer design, and undergraduates specializing in electronic hardware design.

Book News Annotation:

This volume explains Hardware Description Languages (HDLs), providing an analysis of the basic principles underlying HDLs and an overview of the origin and evolution of the most important HDLs of the last thirty years, including VHDL, CDL, and VHSIC. Ghosh (computer science, Arizona State U.) includes discussions of distributed simulation of behavior models, the new semantics for transport delay, and how to accurately model hardware.

About the Author

Sumit Ghosh is the associate chair for research and graduate programs in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at Arizona State University. Previously, he had been on the faculty at Brown University and has held research positions in private industry. Dr. Ghosh’s research has pioneered work in areas such as preemptive semantics for inertial delays in hardware description languages; execution of VHDL models on distributed processors; behavior-level fault modeling; asynchronous distributed fault simulation; timing verification of asynchronous digital designs; deadlock-free distributed discrete event simulation algorithm (YADDES); dynamically reconfigurable computer architectures; and modeling and large-scale simulation of complex real-world systems. Dr. Ghosh’s additional contributions include a fundamental framework for network security that has been incorporated into the National Security Agency’s Network Rating Model; security on demand in ATM networks; a proposal to integrate the Department of Defense and public ATM network infrastructures; and the synthesis and validation of a comprehensive suite of security attack models for ATM networks. His research is the result of support from the IEEE Foundation, US AFOSR, US Army Research Office, DARPA, Bellcore, NYNEX, National Library of Medicine, NSF, Intel Corp., US Army Research Lab, US Ballistic Missile Defense Organization, National Security Agency, and US Air Force Labs in Rome, New York through Motorola.
