INTRODUCTION TO VHDLVHDL is an acronym which stands for VHSIC Hardware Description Language. VHSIC is yet another acronym which stands for Very High Speed Integrated Circuits. VHDL offers the following advantages for the digital design: Standard: VHDL is an IEEE standard. Just like any standard it reduces confusion and makes interface easier. Support from Industry: With the advent of more powerful and efficient VHDL tools, it has gained more support from the electronic industry. Modeling Capability: VHDL was developed to model all levels of design. VHDL can accommodate behavioral constructs and mathematical routines that describe the complex models. Reusability: changing the value of the parameters can reuse generic codes written in VHDL.
WHAT IS LOGIC SYNTHESIS?Logic synthesis is the process of taking a form of input (VHDL), translating it into form and then optimizing in terms of propagation delay or area. Once the VHDL code is translated into an internal form, the optimization process can be performed based on the nature of constraints such as speed, area, power and So on.
VHDL TERMS :Before we go further, lets define some of the terms that we will be using throughout the file. There are some basic VHDL building blocks that are used in almost every description. 1) Entity: All designs are expressed in terms of entities. An entity is the most basic Building block in a design. 2) Architecture: All entities that can be simulated have an architecture description. The architecture describes the behaviour of the entity. 3) Configuration: A configuration statement is used to bind a component instance to anentity-architecture pair. A configuration can be considered like a part list for a design. It describes which behaviour to use for each entity. 4) Package: A Package is a collection of commonly used data types and subprogram used in a design. 5) Bus: The term bus usually brings to mind a group of signals or a particular
method of communication used in the design of hardware. 6) Driver: This is a source on a signal. If a signal is driven by two tristate inverters, when both inverters are active, the signal will have two drivers. 7) Process: A Process is the basic unit of execution in VHDL. All operations that are performed in a simulation of a VHDL description are broken into single or multiple processes. 8) Generic: A Generic is a VHDLs term for a parameter that passes information to an entity. For instance, if an entity is a gate level model with a rise and fall delay, values for the rise and fall delays could be passed into the entity with the generics.
EXPERIMENT-1AIM:To design and verify all basic gates using VHDL.
THEORY:First, VHDL code for basic gates was written and block was generated. Code for basic gates is written. The logic function can be realized using only basic gates.
Logic gates :Digital systems are said to be constructed by using logic gates. These gates are the AND, OR, NOT, NAND, NOR, EXOR and EXNOR gates. The basic operations are described below with the aid of truth tables. AND gate: The AND gate is an electronic circuit that gives a high output (1) only if all its inputs are high. A dot (.) is used to show the AND operation i.e. A.B. Bear in mind that this dot is sometimes omitted i.e. AB
OR gate: The OR gate is an electronic circuit that gives a high output (1) if one or more of its inputs are high. A plus (+) is used to show the OR operation.
NOT gate : The NOT gate is an electronic circuit that produces an inverted version of the input at its output. It is also known as an inverter. If the input variable is A, the inverted output is known as NOT A. This is also shown as A', or A with a bar over the top, as shown at the outputs. The diagrams below show two ways that the NAND logic gate can be configured to produce a NOT gate. It can also be done using NOR logic gates in the same way.
NAND gate: This is a NOT-AND gate which is equal to an AND gate followed by a NOT gate. The outputs of all NAND gates are high if any of the inputs are low. The symbol is an AND gate with a small circle on the output. The small circle represents inversion.
NOR gate: This is a NOT-OR gate which is equal to an OR gate followed by a NOT gate. The outputs of all NOR gates are low if any of the inputs are high. The symbol is an OR gate with a small circle on the output. The small circle represents inversion.
EXOR gate : The 'Exclusive-OR' gate is a circuit which will give a high output if either, but not both, of its two inputs are high. An encircled plus sign ( ) is used to show the EOR operation.
EXNOR gate : The 'Exclusive-NOR' gate circuit does the opposite to the EOR gate. It will give a low output if either, but not both, of its two inputs are high. The symbol is an EXOR gate with a small circle on the output. The small circle represents inversion.
The NAND and NOR gates are called universal functions since with either one the AND and OR functions and NOT can be generated. Note: A function in sum of products form can be implemented using NAND gates by replacing all AND and OR gates by NAND gates. A function in product of sums form can be implemented using NOR gates by replacing all AND and OR gates by NOR gates.
