Description - Systemverilog for Design by Stuart Sutherland
SystemVerilog is a rich set of extensions to the IEEE 1364-2001 Verilog Hardware Description Language (Verilog HDL). These extensions address two major aspects of HDL based design. First, modeling very large designs with concise, accurate, and intuitive code. Second, writing high-level test programs to efficiently and effectively verify these large designs. This book, SystemVerilog for Design, addresses the first aspect of the SystemVerilog extensions to Verilog. Important modeling features are presented, such as two-state data types, enumerated types, user-defined types, structures, unions, and interfaces. Emphasis is placed on the proper usage of these enhancements for simulation and synthesis. A companion to this book, SystemVerilog for Verification, covers the second aspect of SystemVerilog. 'The development of the SystemVerilog language makes it easier to produce more efficient and concise descriptions of complex hardware designs. The authors of this book have been involved with the development of the language from the beginning, and who is better to learn from than those involved from day one?'
Greg Spirakis, Vice President of Design Technology, Intel Corporation 'As a company committed to 'open standards', and as one of the early adopters of Verilog, Sun has been a driving force in the standardization effort for SystemVerilog from its inception. SystemVerilog can significantly improve the productivity of designers in the coming years, and this book is a comprehensive reference text for engineers who want to learn about SystemVerilog for their next generation designs.' Sunil Joshi, Vice President of Software Technologies and Computer Resources, Sun Microsystems, Inc. 'SystemVerilog directly addresses the need for efficient and powerful modeling essential to support the complexity, size, and scale of next generation hardware designs. This book explains how to use SystemVerilog effectively and provides numerous examples to illustrate how each of the language constructs can best be utilized.' Chris Malachowsky, Co-Founder and Vice President of Hardware, NVIDIA Corporation
