Any recommended VHDL/Verilog books/resources?

Post by DanB »

I have only a little background in VHDL, having done a module during my Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree, and would like to pick it up again. It has been a little over a year since I last touched it and I never had a totally extensive knowledge, anyway. So, let's assume I want to learn from the ground up and if I remember bits as I go along that's just a bonus. I definitely want to learn VHDL but any resource that teaches Verilog, in situ, would be great.

So, what books/resources would you recommend to get going?

Rapid Prototyping of Digital Circuits by Hamblen, Hall and Furman is good for VHDL and Altera devices and software. It's something of a cookbook, but has loads of interesting projects. Get the latest Quartus II edition and don't pay the full price - Amazon has used copies.

Cheap Altera Cyclone boards are available from several Chinese suppliers on Ebay.
