This book will help engineers write better Verilog/SystemVerilog design and verification code as well as deliver digital designs to market more quickly. It shows over 100 common coding mistakes that can be made with the Verilog and SystemVerilog languages. Each example explains in detail the symptoms of the error, the languages rules that cover the error, and the correct coding style to avoid the error. The book helps digital design and verification engineers to recognize, and avoid, these common coding mistakes. Many of these errors are very subtle, and can potentially cost hours or days of lost engineering time trying to find and debug them.
Mr. Stuart Sutherland is a member of the IEEE 1800 working group that oversees both the Verilog and SystemVerilog standards. He has been involved with the definition of the Verilog standard since its inception in 1993, and the SystemVerilog standard since work began in 200I. In addition, Stuart is the technical editor of the official IEEE Verilog and SystemVerilog Language Reference Manuals (LRMs). Stuart is an independent Verilog consultant, specializing in providing comprehensive expert training on the Verilog HDL, SystemVerilog and PLI. Stuart is a co-authorof the books "SystemVerilog for Design", "Verilog-2001: A Guide to the New Features in the Verilog Hardware Description Language" and is the author of "The Verilog PLl Handbook", as well as the popular "Verilog HDL Quick Reference Guide" and"Verilog PLl QuickReference Guide". He has also authored a number of technical papers on Verilog and SystemVerilog, which are available at www.sutherland-hdl.com/papers.
