Key features include:
* Case studies that provide a walk through of the design process, highlighting the trade-offs involved.
* Discussion of real world issues such as choice of device, pin-out, power supply, power supply decoupling, signal integrity- for embedding FPGAs within a PCB based design.
With this book engineers will be able to:
* Use PLD technology to develop digital and mixed signal electronic systems
* Develop PLD based designs using both schematic capture and VHDL synthesis techniques
* Interface a PLD to digital and mixed-signal systems
* Undertake complete design exercises from design concept through to the build and test of PLD based electronic hardware
This book will be ideal for electronic and computer engineering students taking a practical or Lab based course on digital systems development using PLDs and for engineers in industry looking for concrete advice on developing a digital system using a FPGA or CPLD as its core.

Ian A. Grout received his B.Eng in Electronic Engineering (1991) and PhD (1994) from Lancaster University (UK). He has worked in both industry and the academic field in microelectronic circuit and electronics design and test. He currently works in the areas of mixed-signal integrated circuit (IC) design for testability (DfT) and digital electronic circuit design using programmable logic. The author is currently a lecturer within the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering at the University of Limerick (Ireland). He currently teaches programmable logic and integrated circuit design and test principles within the university and has worked in Limerick since 1998. Prior to this he was a lecturer in the Engineering Department at Lancaster University (UK).
