DESIGN ENTRY AND SIMULATION OF SEQUENTIAL CIRCUITS

AIM:

To design and implement the following sequential circuits using Verilog HDL
and verify using the testbench

1. Counters
2. Finite State Machine

APPARATUS REQUIRED:

 PC with Windows XP.


 Xilinx 14.3

THEORY:

Counters

Synchronous counters are distinguished from asynchronous counters in that


clock pulses are applied to the CP inputs of all flip-flops. The common pulse triggers
all the flip-flops simultaneously, rather than one at a time in succession as in
asynchronous counter. The decision whether a flip-flop is to be complemented or not
is determined from the values of the J and K inputs at the time of the pulse. If J = K =
0, the flip-flop remains unchanged. If J = K = 1, the flip-flop complements. In a
synchronous binary ripple counter, the flip-flop in the lowest-order position is
complemented with very pulse. This means that it’s J and K inputs must be
maintained at logic-1. A flip-flop in any other position is complemented with a pulse
provided all the bits in the lower-order positions are equal to 1, because the lower-
order bits (when all 1’s) will change to 0’s on the next count pulse. The binary count
dictates the next higher-order bit is complemented. Synchronous binary counters
have a regular pattern and can easily be constructed with complementing flip-flops (
J K or T Type) and gates.

Finite State Machine


Designing a synchronous finite state machine (FSM) is a common task for a
digital logic engineer. A finite state machine can be divided in to two types: Moore
and Mealy state machines. The current state of the machine is stored in the state
memory, a set of n flip-flops clocked by a single clock signal (hence “synchronous”
state machine). The state vector (also current state, or just state) is the value currently
Page 1

stored by the state memory. The next state of the machine is a function of the state
vector in Moore; function of state vector and the inputs in Mealy.

PROCEDURE:

1. Start Xilinx ISE 14.3, click on “CREATE A NEW PROJECT” and then click on
Next.
2. Select your working directory, give the name of the project, then click on
“NEXT”.
3. Select the device family (Spartan 3E), Device (XC3S250E), package (PQ208),
Speed grade (4), Synthesis tool (XST [VHDL/VERILOG]), simulator (ISim) and
preferred language (Verilog) from the available device list, and then click
“NEXT” and click FINISH.
4. Write the HDL code and be careful to give the entity name the same as project
name.
5. In the design window change into simulation and double click behavioral
check syntax.
6. If the HDL code is error free a green check mark will be shown on the
behavioral check syntax.
7. Select simulation then double click on “Simulate Behavioral Model” (here we
can change the level of abstraction. i.e. structural/behavioral/dataflow/switch
level)
8. If there is zero error a new window will be shown. Apply the desired input as
1’s and 0’s and check whether the outputs are correct or not in the output
waveform.
9. Create a new verilog test fixture and give the various input constraints and
save the file and check if any errors are present.
10. Simulate the testbench and analyze the output waveform.
