Verilog References

IEEE Standard for SystemVerilog
The IEEE standard for SystemVerilog 2017, IEEE 1800-2017. This document describes the language in complete detail. Keep in mind that the course will not cover the entire language. This should not be used as the only reference for those completely unfamiliar with Verilog.
SimVision Introduction
An introduction to SimVision, the GUI to the Cadence simulation programs. Using SimVision you can get a logic-analyzer-like view of the objects in your Verilog design during simulation, facilitating debugging.
ChipWare Components
Reference for the ChipWare library of handy components that can be used in Verilog and VHDL designs. Password needed if accessed from off campus. (UserID is ee3755)
Handbook on Verilog HDL
A 32-page (PDF) guide to “old school” (pre-1995) Verilog used at Bucknell University and widely cited. Useful if you didn't buy the book or if you need the material described differently.
