A 48-page (in PDF form) introduction to Unix. Reasonably concise. Available in HTML, PostScript, and PDF.
Reference manual for the extended version of Verilog, VerilogXL, used by Cadence packages. The manual describes the VerilogXL language itself as well as a simulator. Password needed if accessed from off campus. (UserID is ee3755)
Two-page, triptych-foldable, quick reference guide for Verilog. (Company promotion.) Recommended.
A 32-page (PDF) guide to Verilog used at Bucknell University and widely cited. Useful if you didn't buy the book or if you need the material described differently.
Standard 1364-1995 IEEE Standard Hardware Description Language Based on the Verilog Hardware Description Language, 1995
The canonical reference for Verilog is IEEE standard 1364-1995. It is reasonably readable and is more concise and complete than the textbook. It can be purchased for $147 ($118 for members) from the IEEE Store. It is also available for free, sort of. There is a version on the net at IEEE Verilog HDL Language Reference Manual Project, but its not intended for public use. A pre-IEEE-standard copy is included with the Silos III Demo simulator distribution in ...\silos3\Help\VERILOG.HLP. (The Silos demo simulator is on the second CD-ROM in the back of the Ciletti text.)
Description of the synthesis capabilities and limits of the Cadence Encounter RTL Compiler. Password needed if accessed from off campus. (UserID is ee3755)
