Genre: Microprocessors

If you have the right tools, designing a microprocessor shouldnt be complicated. The Verilog hardware description language (HDL) is one such tool. It can enable you to depict, simulate, and synthesise an electronic design, and thus increase your productivity by reducing the overall workload associated with a given project. Monte Dalrymples Microprocessor Design Using Verilog HDL is a practical guide to processor design in the real world. It presents the Verilog HDL in an easily digestible fashion and serves as a thorough introduction about reducing a computer architecture and instruction set to practice. Youre led through the microprocessor design process from start to finish, and essential topics ranging from writing in Verilog to debugging and testing are laid bare. The book details the following, and more: Verilog HDL Review: data types, bit widths/labelling, operations, statements, and design hierarchy; Verilog Coding Style: files vs. modules, indentation, and design organisation; Design Work: instruction set architecture, external bus interface, and machine cycle; Microarchitecture: design spreadsheet and essential worksheets (eg: Operation, Instruction Code, and Next State); Writing in Verilog: choosing encoding, assigning states in a state machine, and files (eg: defines.v, hierarchy.v, machine.v); Debugging, Verification, and Testing: debugging requirements, verification requirements, testing requirements, and the test bench; Post Simulation: enhancements and reduction to practice.

Genre: Technology & Engineering

DIGITAL SYSTEMS DESIGN USING VERILOG integrates coverage of logic design principles, Verilog as a hardware design language, and FPGA implementation to help electrical and computer engineering students master the process of designing and testing new hardware configurations. A Verilog equivalent of authors Roth and John's previous successful text using VHDL, this practical book presents Verilog constructs side-by-side with hardware, encouraging students to think in terms of desired hardware while writing synthesizable Verilog. Following a review of the basic concepts of logic design, the authors introduce the basics of Verilog using simple combinational circuit examples, followed by models for simple sequential circuits. Subsequent chapters ask readers to tackle more and more complex designs.

Digital Computer Arithmetic Datapath Design Using Verilog HDL

Author: James E. Stine
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 1402077106
Release Date: 2004
Genre: Computers

This text presents basic implementation strategies forarithmetic datapath designs and methodologies utilized in the digitalsystem. The author implements various datapath designs for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Theory is presented toillustrate and explain why certain designs are chosen. Eachimplementation is discussed in terms of design choices and howparticular theory is invoked in the hardware.Along with the theory that emphasizes the design in question, Verilogmodules are presented for understanding the basic ideas that accompanyeach design. Structural models are implemented to guarantee correctsynthesis and for incorporation into VLSI schematic-capture programs.From the modules, the reader can easily add or modify existing code tostudy current areas of research in the area of computer arithmetic.The emphasis is on the arithmetic algorithm and not the circuit. Forany design, both algorithmic and circuit trade-offs should be adheredto when a design is under consideration. Therefore, the idea is toimplement each design at the RTL level so that it may be possiblyimplemented in many different ways (i.e. standard-cell orcustom-cell). Thus, professionals, researchers, students, and thosegenerally interested in computer arithmetic can understand howarithmetic datapath elements are designed and implemented.Also included is a CD-ROM which contains the files discussed in thebook. The CD-ROM includes additional files utilized in preparing thedesigns in Verilog including scripts to automatically generate Verilogcode for parallel carry-save and tree multipliers. Each Verilogdesign also contains each module including testbenches to facilitatetesting and verification.

FSM based Digital Design using Verilog HDL

Author: Peter Minns
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 0470987618
Release Date: 2008-04-30
Genre: Technology & Engineering

As digital circuit elements decrease in physical size, resulting in increasingly complex systems, a basic logic model that can be used in the control and design of a range of semiconductor devices is vital. Finite State Machines (FSM) have numerous advantages; they can be applied to many areas (including motor control, and signal and serial data identification to name a few) and they use less logic than their alternatives, leading to the development of faster digital hardware systems. This clear and logical book presents a range of novel techniques for the rapid and reliable design of digital systems using FSMs, detailing exactly how and where they can be implemented. With a practical approach, it covers synchronous and asynchronous FSMs in the design of both simple and complex systems, and Petri-Net design techniques for sequential/parallel control systems. Chapters on Hardware Description Language cover the widely-used and powerful Verilog HDL in sufficient detail to facilitate the description and verification of FSMs, and FSM based systems, at both the gate and behavioural levels. Throughout, the text incorporates many real-world examples that demonstrate designs such as data acquisition, a memory tester, and passive serial data monitoring and detection, among others. A useful accompanying CD offers working Verilog software tools for the capture and simulation of design solutions. With a linear programmed learning format, this book works as a concise guide for the practising digital designer. This book will also be of importance to senior students and postgraduates of electronic engineering, who require design skills for the embedded systems market.

Designing Digital Computer Systems with Verilog

Author: David J. Lilja
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 1139455818
Release Date: 2004-12-02
Genre: Computers

This book serves both as an introduction to computer architecture and as a guide to using a hardware description language (HDL) to design, model and simulate real digital systems. The book starts with an introduction to Verilog - the HDL chosen for the book since it is widely used in industry and straightforward to learn. Next, the instruction set architecture (ISA) for the simple VeSPA (Very Small Processor Architecture) processor is defined - this is a real working device that has been built and tested at the University of Minnesota by the authors. The VeSPA ISA is used throughout the remainder of the book to demonstrate how behavioural and structural models can be developed and intermingled in Verilog. Although Verilog is used throughout, the lessons learned will be equally applicable to other HDLs. Written for senior and graduate students, this book is also an ideal introduction to Verilog for practising engineers.
