Item description for Digital Signal Processing with Field Programmable Gate Arrays (Signals and Communication Technology) by Uwe Meyer-Baese...
Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are revolutionizing digital signal processing as novel FPGA families are replacing ASICs and PDSPs for front-end digital signal processing algorithms. So the efficient implementation of these algorithms is critical and is the main goal of this book. It starts with an overview of today's FPGA technology, devices, and tools for designing state-of-the-art DSP systems. A case study in the first chapter is the basis for more than 30 design examples throughout. The following chapters deal with computer arithmetic concepts, theory and the implementation of FIR and IIR filters, multirate digital signal processing systems, DFT and FFT algorithms, and advanced algorithms with high future potential. Each chapter contains exercises. The VERILOG source code and a glossary are given in the appendices, while the accompanying CD-ROM contains the examples in VHDL and Verilog code as well as the newest Altera "Baseline" software. This edition has a new chapter on adaptive filters, new sections on division and floating point arithmetics, an up-date to the current Altera software, and some new exercises.

Starry Jun 29, 2008
Comes from the DSP hardware Stars. Actually the only book on DSP hardware design in the market as of 2007. So there isnt much of choice, if you are into this businees. Good value for money, a hefty, detailed treatment.
Barely connected with FPGA, Practical? No Aug 13, 2003
I was so disappointed after I read the book. I had expected to get some practical examples about implementing DSP in FPGA.I regret I was attracted by the name of the book and some reviews definitely not from sillicon valley . Except in chapter1"introduction" there lists some basic FPGA concepts, I hardly say how this book was named as "DSP with FPGA". It does provide lots of mathemetical models, graphs for each DSP component, I believe it will be much more helpful to writing a PhD thesis rather than using as reference book in industry. If you are expecting to get some practical examples about implementing DSP in FPGA, this book might not be a choice.
Excellent for DSP Implementations Apr 25, 2003
In this book Dr Meyer-Baese brings in his industrial/proffessional experience from the field of DSP using FPGAS. Lots of other FPGA/Hardware books just talk about the theoretical/concetual/abstract level DSP. Here the main focus is the practical implementation of the different DSP Components everything from Multipliers to the Discrete Wavelet Trasform. Each of these components are seperately discussed chapter-wise and is supplemented by applications and also source code in both VHDL and Verilog (mostly in the accompanying CD) If you just want to know what an FFT is then this book is NOT for you,but if you want to implement this in hardware then this is THE book.
DSP with FPGAs Oct 24, 2002
"Digital Signal Processing with Field Programmable Gate Arrays" covers most of the popular DSP applications in good detail. Before you buy this book I would highly recommend reading "Understanding DSP" by Rick Lyons.
Once you understand the fundamentals of DSP this book will help you decide on the best implementation of each algorithm using a step by step approach. The author also weighs up the pros and cons of each algorithm.
Very highly recommended by an expert in the field Jan 30, 2002
This book is well written and covers many of the aspects of DSP with FPGAs. I run a business that specializes exclusively in high performance DSP designs using FPGAs. This book pretty much covers it all, in fact it closely parallels the material we present in our DSP for FPGAs seminar. I very highly recommend this book.
The following are the contents of the book, which are not otherwise listed on this site: 1. Intro, which goes over FPGA architectures, 25 pages
2. Computer arithmetic. Covers computer arithmetic from the slant of hardware. Includes distributed arithmetic and cordic discussion, 46 pages,
3. FIR filters 34 pages
4. IIR filters 24 pages
5. Multirate signal processing -- decimation &interpolation, polyphase decompositin, CIC filters, Multistage decimators, Frequency sampling, filterbanks, wavelets. 59 pages
6. Fourier Transforms -- 42 pages
7. Advanced topics -- Rectangular and number theoretic transforms, error control and cryptography, modulation & demodulation --76 pages
