A Complete Toolkit for Designing Embedded Cores and Utilizing Those Cores in an Embedded System
A landmark guide in digital system design, Embedded Core Design with FPGAs equips today's computer engineers with everything they need to design embedded cores and apply those cores in a state-of-the-art embedded system. This practical resource brings together logic design, computer architecture, Verilog, FPGAs, Hardware/Software design, and SoCs, explaining how engineers can draw on their computer engineering background to achieve cutting-edge embedded designs.
Renowned design expert and educator Zainalabedin Navabi first covers the basics of logic design, RT Level Verilog, computer architectures, and the architecture of modern field programmable devices. He then explores the design of utility cores that are used for high-level core-based designs, with specific focus on existing Altera cores. Finally, he describes higher-end design methodologies, including design of hardware/software systems, CPU configurations, embedded systems, and the utilization of various Altera Nios II processors.
Embedded Core Design with FPGAs features:
- A full array of design aids, including Verilog, FPLD structures, design and programming environments, and software and hardware tools
- The latest embedded system design techniques, including use of high-level integrated environments, SOPC development tools, utilizing existing processor cores, and developing your own customized processor

About the Author
Zainalabedin Navabi, Ph.D., is professor of electrical and computer engineering at Northeastern University. Dr. Navabi is the author of several textbooks and computer based trainings on VHDL, Verilog and related tools and environments. Dr. Navabi's involvement with hardware description languages began in 1976 when he started the development of a register-transfer level simulator for one of the very first Hardware Description Languages (HDLs). In 1981 he completed the development of a synthesis tool that generated MOS layout from an RTL description. Since 1981, Dr. Navabi has been involved in the design, definition and implementation of HDLs. He has written numerous papers on the application of HDLs in simulation, synthesis and test of digital systems. He started one of the first full HDL courses at Northeastern University in 1990. Since then he has conducted many short courses and tutorials on this subject in the United States and abroad. In addition to being a professor, he is also a consultant to Electronic Design Automation (EDA) companies. Dr. Navabi received his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Arizona in 1978 and 1981, and his B.S. from the University of Texas at Austin in 1975. He is a senior member of IEEE, and a member of IEEE Computer Society, ASEE, and ACM. Dr. Navabi is the author of six books on various aspects of digital system design automation.

It explains logic design concepts first. Even if a person is very new to the digital field, he/she will be able to start right from there. Then the chapter named RTL design with Verilog, gives an opportunity to learn a hardware description language named Verilog right from this book. This chapter is so well written that no other separate book on verilog is necessary to learn.
This book explains very well how the Field Programmable Devices work. It has lots of examples to work with and program with Altera UP3 and DE2 board. These examples have made this book a unique one, because most of the books only provide examples, but this one shows how one can really use an FPGA board and provides step by step procedure to run those example in the FPGA board.
This book also has a chapter to design with Embedded processors. Embedded design steps were shown brilliantly with examples like design of a microcontroller etc.
Overall, this is a very good book on Embedded system design which covers topics like logic design to learning verilog to using FPGA boards to designing embedded processors.
