TL;DR: This book covers techniques for synthesis and optimization of digital circuits at the architectural and logic levels, i.e., the generation of performance-and-or area-optimal circuits representations from models in hardware description languages.
Abstract: From the Publisher: Synthesis and Optimization of Digital Circuits offers a modern, up-to-date look at computer-aided design (CAD) of very large-scale integration (VLSI) circuits. In particular, this book covers techniques for synthesis and optimization of digital circuits at the architectural and logic levels, i.e., the generation of performance-and/or area-optimal circuits representations from models in hardware description languages. The book provides a thorough explanation of synthesis and optimization algorithms accompanied by a sound mathematical formulation and a unified notation. The text covers the following topics: modern hardware description languages (e.g., VHDL, Verilog); architectural-level synthesis of data flow and control units, including algorithms for scheduling and resource binding; combinational logic optimization algorithms for two-level and multiple-level circuits; sequential logic optimization methods; and library binding techniques, including those applicable to FPGAs.

TL;DR: The Designer's Guide to VHDL is both a comprehensive manual for the language and an authoritative reference on its use in hardware design at all levels, from the system level to the gate level.
Abstract: From the Publisher: The Designer's Guide to VHDL is both a comprehensive manual for the language and an authoritative reference on its use in hardware design at all levels, from the system level to the gate level. Using the IEEE standard for VHDL, the author presents the entire description language and builds a modeling methodology based on successful software engineering techniques. Requiring only a minimal background in programming, this is an excellent tutorial for anyone in computer architecture, digital systems engineering, or CAD. The book is organized so that it can be either read cover-to-cover for a comprehensive tutorial or kept deskside as a reference to the language. Each chapter introduces a number of related concepts or language facilities and illustrates each one with examples. Scattered throughout the book are four case studies, which bring together preceding material in the form of extended worked examples. All of the examples and case studies, complete with test drivers for running the VHDL code, are available via the World Wide Web. In addition, each chapter is followed by a set of related exercises.

TL;DR: This book is intended as an introduction to the entire range of issues important to reconfigurable computing, using FPGAs as the context, or "computing vehicles" to implement this powerful technology.
Abstract: The main characteristic of Reconfigurable Computing is the presence of hardware that can be reconfigured to implement specific functionality more suitable for specially tailored hardware than on a simple uniprocessor. Reconfigurable computing systems join microprocessors and programmable hardware in order to take advantage of the combined strengths of hardware and software and have been used in applications ranging from embedded systems to high performance computing. Many of the fundamental theories have been identified and used by the Hardware/Software Co-Design research field. Although the same background ideas are shared in both areas, they have different goals and use different approaches.This book is intended as an introduction to the entire range of issues important to reconfigurable computing, using FPGAs as the context, or "computing vehicles" to implement this powerful technology. It will take a reader with a background in the basics of digital design and software programming and provide them with the knowledge needed to be an effective designer or researcher in this rapidly evolving field. · Treatment of FPGAs as computing vehicles rather than glue-logic or ASIC substitutes · Views of FPGA programming beyond Verilog/VHDL · Broad set of case studies demonstrating how to use FPGAs in novel and efficient ways
