Introduction
DoorOpener
• A drawing of a circuit, or
schematic, contains
a design
c
– Inverter is above the OR gate,
AND gate is to the right, etc.
• Such graphical information
may not be useful for large
designs
• Can use textual language

Textual Language – English
• Can describe circuit using English text rather than using a drawing
– Of course, English isn't a good language for a computer to read
– Need a more precise, computer-oriented language

We'll now describe a circuit whose name isDoorOpener.
The external inputs are c, h and p, which are bits.
The external output isf, which is a bit.
We assume you know the behavior of these components:
An inverter, which has a bit input x, and bit output F.
A 2-input ORgate, which has inputs x and y, and bit output F.
A 2-input AND gate, which has bit inputs x and y, and bit output F.
The circuit has internal wires n1 and n2, both bits.
The DoorOpener circuit internally consists of:
An inverter named Inv_1, whose input x connectsto
external input c, and whose output connectsto n1.
A 2-input ORgate named OR2_1, whose inputsconnect to external
inputs h and p, and whose output connectsto n2.
A 2-input AND gate named AND2_1, whose inputsconnect to n1
and n2, and whose output connectsto external output f.
That's all.

Describing Hardware Circuits: HDLs
• Hardware description language (HDL)
– Intended to describe circuits textually, for a computer to read
– Evolved starting in the 1970s and 1980s
• Popular languages today include:
– VHDL –Defined in 1980s by U.S. military; Ada-like language
– Verilog –Defined in 1980s by a company; C-like language
– SystemC –Defined in 2000s by several companies; consists of
libraries in C++

Combinational Behavior
• Combinational behavior
– Description of desired behavior of combinational circuit without
creating circuit itself
– e.g., F = c' * (h + p) can be described as equation rather than circuit
– HDLs support description of combinational behavior
Digital Design

Describing Combinational Behavior in VHDL
• Describing an OR gate's
behavior
– Entity defines input/output ports
– Architecture
• Process – Describes behavior
– Process "sensitive" to x and y
» Means behavior only
executes when x
changes or y changes
– Behavior assigns a new value
to output port F, computed
using built-in operator "or"
Digital Design
Frank Vahid
library ieee;

process (x, y)
begin
F <= x or y;
end process;

Describing Combinational Behavior in Verilog
• Describing an OR gate's
behavior
– Module declares input/output
ports
• Also indicates that F is "reg"
• Means F stores value
– By default, ports are wires,
having no storage
– "always" procedure executes
statement block when change
occurs on x or on y
module OR2(x,y,F);
input x, y;
output F;
reg F;
always @(x or y)
begin
F <= x | y;
end
endmodule
• "Sensitive" to x and y
• Assigns value to F, computed
using built-in OR operator "|"

Describing a 4-bit Register in VHDL
• Entity
– 4 data inputs, 4 data outputs, and a
clock input
– Use std_logic_vector for 4-bit data
• I: in std_logic_vector(3 downto 0)
• I <= "1000" would assign I(3)=1,
I(2)=0, I(1)=0, I(0)=0
• Architecture
– Process sensitive to clock input
• First statement detects if change on
clock was a rising edge
• If clock change was rising edge,
sets output Q to input I
• Ports are signals, and signals store
values – thus, output retains new
value until set to another value

Chapter Summary
• Hardware Description Languages (HDLs) are widely used
in modern digital design
– Textual rather than graphical language sufficient for many purposes
– Great for simulation
• VHDL, Verilog, and SystemC are popular
• Introduced languages mainly through examples
• Numerous HDL books exist to teach each language in
more detail
