Synthesis and Simulation Design Guide
 About This Guide
This guide provides a general overview of designing Field Programmable Gate Arrays(FPGA devices) with Hardware Description Languages (HDLs). It includes design hintsfor the novice HDL user, as well as for the experienced user who is designing FPGAdevices for the first time.The design examples in this guide were:
created with Verilog and VHSIC Hardware Description Language (VHDL)
compiled with various synthesis tools
targeted for Spartan™-II, Spartan-IIE, Spartan-3, Spartan-3E, Virtex™, Virtex-E,Virtex-II, Virtex-II Pro, Virtex-II Pro X and Virtex-4 devicesXilinx® equally endorses both Verilog and VHDL. VHDL may be more difficult to learnthan Verilog, and usually requires more explanation.This guide does not address certain topics that are important when creating HDL designs,such as the design environment; verification techniques; constraining in the synthesis tool;test considerations; and system verification. For more information, see your synthesis tooldocumentation and design methodology notes.Before using this guide, you should be familiar with the operations that are common to allXilinx software tools.
Guide Contents
This guide contains the following chapters.
Chapter 1,“Introduction,”provides a general overview of designing FieldProgrammable Gate Arrays (FPGA devices) with HDLs. This chapter also includesinstallation requirements and instructions.
Chapter 2,“Understanding High-Density Design Flow,”provides synthesis andXilinx implementation techniques to increase design performance and utilization.
Chapter 3,“General HDL Coding Styles,”includes HDL coding hints and designexamples to help you develop an efficient coding style.
Chapter 4,“Coding Styles for FPGA Devices,”includes coding techniques to help youuse the latest Xilinx FPGA devices.
Chapter 5“Using SmartModels,”describes the special considerations encounteredwhen simulating designs for Virtex-II Pro and Virtex-II Pro X FPGA devices.
Chapter 6,“Simulating Your Design,”describes simulation methods for verifying thefunction and timing of your designs.
