WHICH BOOK IS BEST FOR ME?  
 

1.   Digital Design Using Digilent FPGA Boards – Verilog/Vivado Edition ($44.95)

is the latest and most complete book.  It contains 13 chapters ranging from basic gates to the design of a VGA controller and the use of the PS2 port for interfacing a keyboard and mouse.  Over 75 complete examples work on both the Digilent BASYS2, NEXYS2, NEXYS3, and NEXYS4 FPGA boards.  This book can also be bundled with one of these FPGA boards directly from Digilent, Inc.  This is the best book if you want to learn to program in Verilog from the beginning using Xilinx's free Vivado WebPACK.

 

 
 

2.  Introduction to Digital Design Using Digilent FPGA Boards – Block Diagram/Verilog Examples ($34.95)

contains 30 basic digital design examples that will run on either the Digilent BASYS2 and NEXYS2 FPGA boards.  In these examples, you create the design by drawing the circuit using the Active-HDL block diagram editor.  When you compile these block diagrams, the corresponding Verilog code is automatically generated.  This book will be useful if you want to understand basic digital design and get simple projects working on the FPGA boards without having to learn Verilog.  This book can also be bundled with one of these FPGA boards directly from Digilent, Inc. 

 

 
     

     

    Introduction to Digital Design Using Digilent FPGA Boards - Block Diagram/Verilog Examples
    Richard E. Haskell and Darrin M. Hanna
    (179 pages)

    This book assumes no previous knowledge of digital design.  We use 30 examples to show you how to get started designing digital circuits that you can implement on a Digilent BASYS™ system board that can be purchased from www.digilentinc.com or other board with a Xilinx FPGA.  

    We will use Active-HDL from Aldec to design, simulate, synthesize, and implement our digital designs.  A free student edition of Active-HDL is available from Aldec, Inc. (www.aldec.com).   To synthesize your designs to a Xilinx FPGA you will need to download the free Vivado WebPACK from Xilinx, Inc. (www.xilinx.com).  The Xilinx synthesis tools are called from within the Aldec Active-HDL integrated GUI.  A more complete book called Digital Design Using Digilent FPGA Boards – Veriloc / Vivado Edition is also available from Digilent or LBE Books.  

    This more comprehensive book contains over 75 examples including examples of using the VGA and PS/2 ports.  Similar books that use VHDL are also available from Digilent or LBE Books.

Digital Design Using Digilent FPGA Boards - Verilog/Vivado Edition
4th Edition
Richard E. Haskell and Darrin M. Hanna
(372 pages)

This book assumes no previous knowledge of digital design.  You start at the beginning learning about basic gates, logic equations, Boolean algebra, and Karnaugh maps. 

In over 75 examples we show you how to design digital circuits using Verilog and simulate and synthesize them using Xilinx's free development environment, Vivado HL WebPACK. You can synthesize the designs to a Xilinx Spartan3E FPGA on either the BASYS™ system board that can be purchased from Digilent, Inc (www.digilentinc.com) or any of the Nexys boards. More recently, Digilent offers the Nexys4 board with an Artix-7 FPGA. 

To synthesize your designs to a Xilinx FPGA you will need to download the Vivado WebPACK from Xilinx, Inc. (www.xilinx.com). 

You can use Adept 2.1 to download your bit files to either the BASYS2, Nexys2, or Nexys3 boards. The Nexys4 board uses iMPACT to configure the FPGA which is included with Vivado WebPACK.  All references to the BASYS board in this book apply to the BASYS2 board. All of the user constraints (.ucf) and Xilinx Design Constraints (.xdc) files for each board can be downloaded from http://www.lbebooks.com/downloads.htm.
