The Verilog PLI Book : A User's Guide and Comprehensive Reference on the Verilog Programming Language Interface
This volume is designed to act as both a tutorial on how to write PLI applications and a reference book on the IEEE 1364-1998 Verilog PLI standard. Towards this end, this book has two distinct parts. Part One is written for new users of the PLI. These chapters explain how the PLI works and how it is used to solve basic design verification tasks. A large number of examples illustrate the concepts presented in each chapter. Part Two provides a comprehensive reference of the IEEE 1364 PLI standard. The text should be of interest to hardware design engineers who use or are familiar with the Verilog Hardware Description Language.
