Take a glimpse of the structure and syntax of the two most popular hardware description languages.
- [Instructor] Now let's see what … hardware description languages, or HDLs, are. … First, the purpose of an HDL is hardware entry … for your toolchain to understand what system … you want to produce. … A simulator may be used to interpret your code … in order to predict its behavior. … And later a synthesis tool may be used … to implement the design in a field programmable gate array … or in an application specific integrated circuit. … The built in structure of an HDL based project … consists of two categories of modules. … Descriptive modules, … where you define your hardware … and test bench or stimulus modules, … where you enter a sequence of inputs to your system. … Test bench modules are used by simulators … to execute the steps you entered … and produce the results you want to see. … Here we have two code examples for the same module … in Verilog and VHDL. … The module is the one shown in the schematic diagram … and it's a halfAdder, … a basic block to implement a circuit … that adds two integers. …
