I'm looking for suggestions for books on design, programming, languages ... anything suitable for beginners. Do you have any recommendations?
More and more I get emails asking for advice on introductory books. Just today, in fact, I was asked to suggest a book that explained the concepts behind logic design such as Moore and Mealy state machines, Wallace Trees, and so forth.
So, my plan is to completely revamp the Tech Library portion of this site, and I would really like your recommendations. I'd like to hear about good introductory books on basic logic concepts, design and verification languages (C/C++, VHDL, Verilog, SystemC, etc…), actually performing FPGA design and verification, and anything else you thing would be of interest to users of this Programmable Logic DesignLine website.
In addition to the name and ISBN of a book (or other resource), it would be great if you could provide a few sentences explaining just why you like that book and I'll use your comments on the site to help guide anyone who is searching for answers.
Please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments or suggestions. As usual, if you haven’t already done so, don’t forget to Sign Up for our weekly Programmable Logic DesignLine Newsletter.
