A sample of books on digital electronics and teaching and learning

Hardware description languages


Parnell, K., Mehta, N., Programmable Logic Design Quick Start Hand Book, Xilinx , 2003.

A recommended reading as a way to review and think again about all the concepts involved essentially in Chapters I and II. Here there is another version of a similar document: Programmable Logic Design Quick Start Guide, UG500, v1.0, May 8, 2008. 


Hwang, E. O., Digital logic and microprocessor design with VHDL, CL-Engineering, 2005.

Here you have the link to the book web page.

Digital Design

Tinder, R. F., Engineering Digital Design, 2nd ed., Academic Press, London, UK, 2000.




Reese, R. B., Microprocessors, from Assembly language to C using the PIC18Fxx2, Da Vinci Engineering Press, 2005,

This is a very good reference for studying and reviewing Chapter 3.


Barnett, R. H., Cox, S., O'Cull, L., Embedded C Programming and the Atmel AVR, 2nd Edition, Delmar Cengage Learning, 2007.

This is a very interesting book to start programming Atmel microcontrollers and their peripherals.
