Embedded Design Using Programmable Gate Arrays is an extremely practical learn-by-doing book. If you are a hands-on embedded engineering practitioner (or want to be) this book is for you, especially if you need to use Verilog with FPGA Xilinx hardware. It is also useful as an educational lab manual, with which I would probably pair one of Michael Cilletti's Verilog books for the course material.

Chapter 1's C language to Verilog procedure is a tool that you can add directly to your toolbox. This C2Verilog procedure is the first of many thrusts into behavioral synthesis. Chapter 1 also has a decent introduction to Verilog, making this book a standalone volume for electrical engineers and computer scientists with a background in digital design and C language embedded systems.

Chapter 2 is an in-depth discussion of the Xilinx ISE, with an abundance of screen shots. There is really no other way to guide someone through such a tool, and the book's treatment is very thorough. Chapter 3 discusses applications on two readily available evaluations boards, showing how to interface to board peripherals such as display, mouse, and keyboard. This is usually a job for driver software, but if you have no CPU, this chapter describes what you have to do. Chapter 4 highlights some practical DSP applications complete with the background theory, equations, and Xilinx FIR LogiCore Compiler tool examples. Practical communications examples are also thrown into this chapter, including UART (serial port) transmitter and receiver Verilog source code.

If you are working with such FPGA parts, your toolbox would not be complete without some knowledge of softcore processors. Chapter 5 is a quick introduction to the PicoBlaze CPU.

I'm taking a 2-day intro class with the author, and he said 5/17/13 that an update of this book with a new but similar title will be published and available on Amazon "soon". The class is very good, and I will be buying the new book when it's available.

I buy this book because because i hahe the spartan3e starter board and this seems to be the best book with example code and the only source with templates i know where real time DSP with A/D and D/A is possible.
