The latest set of publication order post cards from IEEE included an
interesting one on an August 1999 book by Dr. Sumit Ghosh entitled:
"Hardware Description Languages: Concepts and Principles."

In addition to the origin and evolution of HDLs, it includes a
treatment of the *subject* of this message.  Member price is $68.00.

I've been interested in VHDL, and the work of Dr. Wong and
Dr. Levine on "Kernel Ada to Unify Hardware and Software Design",
and it would seem that this book may support their ideas.

Its table of contents seems to indicate that 20 of its 276
(maybe 239 or 400) pages are devoted to the Ada design.  See:
