What is VHDL?
VHDL is the VHSIC Hardware Description Language. VHSIC is an abbreviation for Very High Speed Integrated Circuit. It can describe the behavior and structure of electronic systems, but is particularly suited as a language to describe the structure and behavior of digital electronic hardware designs, such as ASICs and FPGAs as well as conventional digital circuits. VHDL is a notation, and is precisely and completely defined by the Language Reference Manual (LRM).

Intended Training Schedules
The content herein is designed to accompany practical courses preparing for the LPI 101 exam of the LPIC-1
programme. While this material was generally structured to work with a course of 24-32 hours in consecutive
8-hour sessions, it is modularized to also work for shorter or longer sessions, consecutive or otherwise.
With the resources provided by communication technologies, E-learning has been employed in multiple universities, as well as in wide range of training centers and schools. This book presents a structured collection of chapters, dealing with the subject and stressing the importance of E-learning. It shows the evolution of E-learning, with discussion about tools, methodologies, improvements and new possibilities for long-distance learning.
More recently, a QSAR (Quantitative Structure Activity Relantionship) investigation was
carried out on a series of nostoclide analogues presenting the general structure (43) to
correlate molecular descriptions with their in vitro biological activity (the ability to interfere
with ligh-driven reduction of ferrycianide by isolated spinach chloroplasts thylakoid
membranes). The results of this investigation suggested that the degree of inhibition
efficiency of this class of compounds is intimately associated with their polarity (Teixeira et
Part I discussed the basics of industrial servo drives from a hardware point of view. Physical parameters and practical applications were discussed. Part II repeats some of the things in Part I but from a mathematical point of view. The advanced application of industrial servo drives requires the use of differential equations to describe mechanical, electrical, and ﬂuid systems. As applied to servo drives there are numerous academic techniques to analyze these systems (e.g., root locus, Nyquist diagrams, etc.).
Lecture Operating system concepts (9th Ed) - Chapter 13 explore the structure of an operating system’s I/O subsystem, discuss the principles of I/O hardware and its complexity, provide details of the performance aspects of I/O hardware and software.
This chapter is devoted to the fundamentals of memory management. It begins by discussing how memory protection is implemented in the hardware by using special registers in the CPU. It then discusses how efficient use of memory is achieved by reusing memory released by a process while handling subsequent memory requests, and how techniques for fast memory allocation and deallocation may cause memory fragmentation.
Chapter 2 discusses the general structure of computer systems. It may be a good idea to review the basic concepts of machine organization and assembly language programming. The students should be comfortable with the concepts of memory, CPU, registers, I/O, interrupts, instructions, and the instruction execution cycle. Since the operating system is the interface between the hardware and user programs, a good understanding of operating systems requires an understanding of both hardware and programs.
This book is an introduction to computer science. Computer science is the study of
computer hardware, algorithms, and data structures and how they fit together to provide
information systems. Each of these topics can be studied at various levels. For example,
physicists study the properties of matter that allow hardware components to be designed,
electrical engineers study how the components can be combined to produce circuits, and
computer engineers study how circuits can be combined to produce computers.
This is the fourth version of the book and this version now not only provides
VHDL language coverage but design methodology information as well. This
version will guide the reader through the process of creating a VHDL
design, simulating the design, synthesizing the design, placing and routing
the design, using VITAL simulation to verify the final result, and a new
technique called At-Speed debugging that provides extremely fast design
verification. The design example in this version has been updated to reflect
the new focus on the design methodology....
The Verilog hardware description language (HDL) provides the ability to
describe digital and analog systems. This ability spans the range from
descriptions that express conceptual and architectural design to detailed
descriptions of implementations in gates and transistors. Verilog was
developed originally at Gateway Design Automation Corporation during the
mid-eighties. Tools to verify designs expressed in Verilog were implemented
at the same time and marketed. Now Verilog is an open standard of IEEE
with the number 1364.

Linux is a modem, free operating system based on UNIX standards. First developed as a small but self-contained kernel in 1991 by Linus Torvalds, with the major design goal of UNIX compatibility. Its history has been one of collaboration by many users from all around the world, corresponding almost exclusively over the Internet.
Building Embedded Linux Systems shows you how to design and build your own embedded systems
using Linux® as the kernel and freely available open source tools as the framework. Written by an active
member of the open source community, the book is structured to gradually introduce readers to the
intricacies of embedded Linux, with detailed information and examples in each chapter that culminate in
describing how Linux is actually put on an embedded device.
The objective of this book is to cover the advances of mobile robotic systems and
related technologies applied especially for multi robot systems' design and
development. The design of mobile robots control system is an important and complex
issue, requiring the application of information technologies to link the robots into a
single network. In recent years, a great number of studies of mobile robot applications
have been proposed but still there is a need to provide software tools to integrate
hardware and software of the robotic platforms....
