This book introduces the latest version of hardware description languages and explains how the languages can be implemented in the design of the digital logic components. In addition to digital design, other examples in the areas of bioengineering and basic computer design are covered. Unlike the competition, HDL with Digital Design introduces mixed language programming. By covering both Verilog and VHDL side by side, students, as well as professionals, can learn both the theoretical and practical concepts of digital design. The two languages are equally important in the field of computer engineering and computer science as well as other engineering fields such as simulation and modeling.


  • Covers both VHDL and Verilog side by side
  • Uses the latest versions of both Verilog and VHDL
  • Includes fundamentals of synthesis and FPGAs implementation
  • Instructor’s resources available upon adoption
