Recommended books for FPGAs

I am still new to the FPGA industry and I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions for books to read on FPGA development. I have a list of books I have been using and will include below, but I want to add some more books.  At my current job we use VHDL, but I prefer Verilog. 

 

 

  • Advance digital design with the Verilog HDL
  • VHDL for logic Sysnthesis
  • Digital Integrated Circuits, a design perspective
  • High-speed digital design, A handbook of b**** magic

 

So, we cannot use certain phrases here?  I was only trying to type in a title.

 

 

Edit:  grammar.

Hi @schumerth,

 

Check out this Xilinx Daily Blog Article: "Found! A great introduction to FPGAs—“Digital System Design with FPGA: Implementation Using Verilog and VHDL”"

 

Regards,
Prathik

VHDL:

FreeRange VHDL:   A good beginners book and it is free at <this link>

 

Xilinx Document ug901 “Synthesis”:  Very readable.  Shows VHDL and Verilog side by side – and it is free

 

 

FPGA and Digital:

Virtex Under the Hood:  Coauthored by long-time Forum contributor @austin  -a real nuts and bolts approach to digital and the FPGA.  Contact Austin at austin@xilinx.com.

 

FPGAs with VHDL: first steps:  by H. DeBlumont.  A copy of this free book is attached to this post.

 

Papers by Cliff Cummings:  Collect ‘em all (see <this link>).  Very readable and often a myth buster. 

 

-and finally, if @avrumw writes a book … about anything …, then you need to get that too.

FPGA Prototyping by VHDL Examples, Chu

 

Virtex Under the Hood, Second Edition, Jenkins, Alfke, Lesea (email me for copy:  austin@xilinx.com)  Revised 2017.

 

Off topic, but useful: (but it is what the future will look like -- processors AND programmable logic will be the norm)

The Zynq Book, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK/Xilinx

 

Also useful, for some:

FPGA-Based Prototyping Methodology Manual: Best practices in Design-for-Prototyping (FPMM), Amos, Lesea, Richter

 

My list of favorites.  For VHDL programming, I just use online resources and online examples.

@austin sense you mentioned processors and programmable logic, do have any resources for Microblaze?

 

 

Edit:

Thank you everybody for the resources you are providing.
