Introducing the Spartan 3E FPGA and VHDL – free book

spartan3EAuthor Mike Fields wrote this book as an introduction to FPGAs and VHDL. The book examples are mainly oriented to Xilinx Spartan 3E FPGA (but as in other books, the concepts are general. If you don’t have that FPGA, adapting the book examples to your own device can be an excellent way to learn).

The book includes:

  • Introduction to FPGAs and VHDL
  • Your first Xilinx project
  • Signals, binary operations, addition and substration
  • Sequential logic
  • Hierarchic designs
  • Simulation
  • Timing constraints and timing closure
  • Using internal RAM
  • Projects:
    • Analog to Digital conversion
    • VGA port
    • RS-232
    • High speed interface, etc
