Back Verilog by Example: These are carefully covered so that novice and experienced designers become aware of these hard to debug but, very common pitfalls” — Carlos M.

Roman, Bell Labs “I find the book useful in illustrating examples of how the Verilog language may be used to design real and practical synthesizable models. I will be very comfortable recommending your book instead I really think this is your best book yet, good job!

It is an essential addition to design engineers’ technical resourses. Copious pairings of examples with diagrams make clear the relationships between code and generated gates” — Jim Vellenga, ViewLogic Systems. He is one of the main architects of the Archsyn synthesis system developed at Bell Labs. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

If you are looking for a very introductory lesson on the workings of Verilog, this is for you.


However if you are looking for something that will help you learn to write complex code, this is not it. My biggest complaint is that this book needs to be hit pretty hard by an editor who actually understands Verilog enough to find the syntax errors and omissions in the example code. If this is supposed to be a “primer” all of the examples should be technically and syntactically correct, and they are not.

I am able to find mistakes and this is my first foray into Verilog.

That’s another book, but the difference is never even mentioned. Almost everything in this book will help you learn how to write test benches for you synthesizable modules. The copyright date is at least six Moore generations ago, as of this writing. CAD tools, and synthesis in particualar, have advanced hugely since then, so much of Bhasker’s advice simply isn’t needed any more – compilers have gotten lots smarter about common subexpressions, for example, so things like manually factoring them out won’t have nearly the impact today that they did then.

Also, for some reason, Bhasker seemed to assume only synthesis straight to silicon when, even then, FPGAs were a significant part of the logic market. In the decade since, synthesis for FPGAs has become the dominant model. That means that synthesis tools need to infer uses of block RAMs, hard multipliers, and other special functions from the HDL code, things outside of Bhasker’s discussion.

The biggest problem might be timing – it just never gets mentioned, even though it’s a major headache in most non-trivial designs. Perhaps, in its day, thie offered a reasonable introduction for the digital ASIC designer. That day passed, and this just doesn’t meet bhaskerr needs of most current logic implementors. This is the only Verilog book I have but it is a good primer to learn Verilog.

It taught me how to write Verilog. While some might say that it’s a beginners’ book, you will end up using this book the most. I have several Verilog books in my cube at my work, but this vdrilog the book my colleagues come very often to look up.

Verilog HDL Synthesis A Practical Primer

This has excellent and authentic descriptions of all Verilog language rules and primitives. It also explains how and when to use different Verilog constructs. I bet you will not regret having this book. Not bad but I have another Verilog book that got me started much quicker. This book, like every one I’ve seen, concentrates a lot on simulation while a lot of us are programming FPGA parts and most of the simulation commands are not supported with bhawker software.


This book should only be used because Palnitkar’s book is going out of print. The author dwells on material that is useless. For example, he spends an entire chapter on UDPssomething you can’t even synthesize. Readers should understand that certain syntax in Verilog is not synthesizeablei.

Moreover, certain syntax is preferred because it leads to more efficient synthesized designs. The author bhaskr all of that, which makes the book essentially worthless for practicing engineers.

The author spends pages on switch-level designs. I am unaware of anyone who uses switch-level descriptions. Switch-level is useless for FPGA designs. The author should replace all of the switch-level pages with pages on synthesizability. Finally, the author has the irritating habit of declaring nets with bit ‘0’ as the most significant bit sometimes and other times bit ‘0’ is the least significant bit.

Pick one convention and stick with it.

A Verilog HDL Primer, Third Edition by J. Bhasker

Overall I would NOT recommend this book if you are an engineer out in industry. Try and get a copy of Palnitkar’s book. You will be far, far better off. See all 20 reviews. Customers who bought this item also bought.
