UNIT 2: Data Flow description
OBJECTIVES •Understand the concept of data flow description •Identify the basic statements and components of data flow •Review and understand the fundamentals of some digital logic systems such as half adder, 2x1 multiplexer, 2x2 combinational array multiplier, 2-bit comparator, D-latch, ripple-carry adder, and carry-lookahead Adder. HDL Programming Fundamentals

2.1 Highlights of Data Flow Description
Data flow description simulates the system by showing how the signal flows from the input of the system to its output. The Boolean function of the output or the logical structure of the system shows such signal flow. Signal assignment statements are concurrent. At any simulation time, all signal assignment statements that have an event are executed concurrently. HDL Programming Fundamentals

2.2 Structure of Data Flow Description
Listing 2.1 Example of HDL Data Flow Description. entity system is port (I1, I2 : in bit; O1, O2 : out bit); end; architecture dtfl_ex of system is begin O1 <= I1 and I2; -- statement 1. O2 <= I1 xor I2; -- statement 2. --Statements 1 and 2 are signal assignment statements end dtfl_ex; HDL Programming Fundamentals

2.2.1 Signal Declaration and Assignment Statements

P(0) <= a(0) and b(0); P(1) <= (a(0) and b(1)) xor (a(1) and b(0)); P(2) <= (a(1) and b(1)) xor ((a(0) and b(1)) and (a(1) and b(0))); P(3) <= (a(1) and b(1)) and ((a(0) and b(1))and (a(1) and b(0))); end MULT_DF; HDL Programming Fundamentals

Example 2.4 D-Latch Inputs Next state E D Q current state Q+ 0 x 0 0
_ _ Q = EQ + ED Qbar = Q HDL Programming Fundamentals Latch-level sensitive. When E=1, Q = D otherwise Q retains its previous value Flip-flop, edge sensitive. When edge of E, Q=D otherwise Q retains its previous value

Example D-latch library IEEE; use IEEE.STD_LOGIC_1164.ALL; entity D_Latch is port (D, E: in std_logic; Q, Qbar: buffer std_logic); -- Q and Qbar are declared as buffer because they act as both input and --output, they appear on the right and left hand side of signal assignment --statements. inout or linkage could have been used instead of buffer. end D_Latch; architecture DL_DtFl of D_Latch is constant Delay_EorD: Time:= 9 ns; constant Delay_inv : Time := 1 ns; begin --Assume 9 nsec propagation delay time between E or D and Qbar; and 1 nsec -- between Qbar and Q.

Verilog 1.3.2 Structure of Verilog Module
module half_adder (I1,I2, O1, O2); input I1; input I2; output O1; output O2; //Blank lines are allowed assign O1 = I1 ^ I2; //statement 1 assign O2 = I1 & I2; // statement 2 endmodule Verilog is case Sensitive A ≠ a ADDR ≠ ADDr HDL Programming Fundamentals Verilog Ports input: the port is an input port only, the port is read. output: the port is an output port. The port, in contrast to VHDL output port, may appear in both sides of the assignment statement. inout: the port can be used as both input and output. The inout port is representing a bidirectional buss.

VHDL Commands or Components Verilog Counterpart entity module

In Verilog we can not use specific time units such as nano seconds, the delay here is expressed in simulation screen units. */ assign #7 Y = S4 | S5; // st1. assign #7 S4 = A & S2 & S1; // st2 assign #7 S5 = B & S3 & S1; //st3 assign #7 S2 = ~ SEL; //st4 assign #7 S3 = ~ S2; //st5 assign #7 S1 = ~ Gbar; // st6 endmodule HDL Programming Fundamentals As in VHDL, all signal assignment statements (st1-st6) that have an event in the right hand side are executed concurrently. Execution is done, as in VHDL, in two phases: Calculate and Assign

Derive a minimized Boolean function of the system and write the data flow description. Simulate the system and verify it is working as designed.
