  • 'After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS'

    2. 2. Chapter Objectives <ul><li>Understand the basics of registers and their types </li></ul><ul><li>Understand the shift registers and their types </li></ul><ul><li>Understand the shift register counters and their types </li></ul><ul><li>Understand the sequence generator </li></ul>
    3. 3. Basics of Registers <ul><li>Register is a sequential circuit that consists of a group of flip-flops for storing binary information. </li></ul><ul><li>An n-bit register contains n flip-flops and can store n-bit of information. </li></ul><ul><li>It is the building block of various digital systems such as multipliers, memories and microprocessors. </li></ul>
    4. 4. Shift Registers <ul><li>A register capable of shifting binary data either to the right or to the left is called a shift register. </li></ul><ul><li>The shift register allows the movement of stored data within the register using two methods: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Serial shifting : It shifts one bit of binary data at a time for each clock pulse in a serial manner. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Parallel shifting : It shifts all the bits of binary data stored in the register simultaneously during a single clock pulse. Parallel shifting is much faster than serial shifting. </li></ul></ul>
    5. 5. Types of Shift Registers <ul><li>Based on the entering and shifting of binary data, shift registers are classified into: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Serial-in Serial-out (SISO) : It accepts and produces data serially on a single input and output line. IC 7491 is an example of this type of register. SISO are of two types: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Shift-left register : It is based on the J-K or D Flip-flop where the entry of the binary number begins from the left most bit. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Shift-right register : It is also based on J-K or D Flip-flop, however, the entry of the binary number begins from the right most bit. </li></ul></ul></ul>
    6. 6. Types of Shift Registers (cont..) <ul><ul><li>Serial-in-Parallel-out (SIPO) : It has one serial input and the output is taken from all the flip-flops in parallel. IC 74164, an 8-bit register, is an example of SIPO. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Parallel-in-Serial-out (PISO) : In this, the data entry is parallel while the output is generated in serial manner. IC 74165, an 8-bit register, is an example of PISO. </li></ul></ul>
    7. 7. Types of Shift Registers (cont..) <ul><ul><li>Parallel-in-Parallel-out (PIPO) : It accepts bits of binary data in parallel and the resultant output is also generated in parallel. There is no interconnection between successive flip-flops. IC 74195, a 4-bit register, is an example of PIPO. </li></ul></ul>
    8. 8. Universal Shift Registers <ul><li>A shift register with both shift and parallel load capabilities is known as universal shift register. </li></ul><ul><li>It is also called shift register with parallel load. </li></ul><ul><li>It is used to convert serial data to parallel data and vice-versa. </li></ul>
    9. 9. Universal Shift Registers (cont..) <ul><li>An universal shift register must consists of atleast one of the following features: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A clear control to clear the register to 0. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A clock input to synchronize all operations. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A shift-right control for shifting right and serial input and output lines linked with shift right. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A shift-left control for shifting left and serial input and output lines linked with shift left. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>N parallel output lines and a control line that leaves unchanged information in register even on clock pulses. </li></ul></ul>
    10. 10. Shift Register Counters <ul><li>It is an arrangement of several types of counters where the output of last flip-flop is fed as input to the first flip-flop. </li></ul><ul><li>On the basis of feedback, shift register counters are of two types: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ring counter : In this, only one flip-flop is set at any particular time while others are cleared. The information can shift from left to right or right to left and back around. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Shift counter : It is a counter where an inverted output of last flip-flop acts as an input to the first flip-flop . </li></ul></ul>
    11. 11. Sequence Generator <ul><li>It generates the desired sequence of bits in synchronization with a clock. </li></ul><ul><li>It is constructed using shift register and next state decoder where the output of next state decoder is connected to serial input of shift register. </li></ul><ul><li>It can be used as random bit generator, code generator and prescribed period generator. </li></ul>
    12. 12. Sequence Generator (cont…) <ul><li>It is designed using two circuits: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Multiplexer : Using this, an n-bit sequence can be generated with n-inputs and modulo-n counter. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Counter : Using this, an N-bit sequence can be generated where the number of flip-flops (n) is given by N < = 2 n - 1. </li></ul></ul>

Overview of Digital Circuits <ul><li>A digital circuit contains logic gates and flip-flops. </li></ul><ul><li>It can perform all the arithmetic operations. </li></ul><ul><li>Digital circuits can be classified on the basis of their dependency on time and inputs: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Combinational circuits : In this, the value of outputs at any instant of time depends only on the present value of inputs. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sequential circuits : In this, the output depends not only on present inputs but also on the sequence of all past inputs. These are of two types: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Synchronous sequential circuit : In this, the transition of the circuit from one state to another is controlled by a clock. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Asynchronous sequential circuit : In this, the transition of the circuit from one state to another is not controlled by a clock. </li></ul></ul></ul>
    46. 46. Classification of Sequential Circuits <ul><li>Sequential circuits can be of five types: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Class A circuit </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Class B circuit </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Class C circuit </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Class D circuit </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Class E circuit </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The Class A circuit is also known as Mealy circuit, while the Class B and Class C circuits are known as Moore circuits. </li></ul>
    47. 47. Synchronous Sequential Circuits Design <ul><ul><li>The following steps are performed to design synchronous sequential circuit: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Study the design specifications of the circuit properly in order to familiarize with their operational behaviour. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Construct a block diagram model for the given circuit design and identify all the inputs and outputs in the model. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Draw a primitive state diagram on the basis of the first two steps. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Develop a primitive state table from this state diagram and identify any redundant state that can be eliminated </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Develop a simplified state table after eliminating the redundant states. </li></ul></ul></ul>
    48. 48. Synchronous Sequential Circuits Design (cont..) <ul><ul><ul><li>Make a state assignment and document the assignment in a state map. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Develop a present state/next step table using the above state assignments and output table. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Identify the type of memory element that needs to be used in the design and determine the excitation table from present and next state table using the application table of the flip-flop. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Draw excitation and output maps from steps 7 and 8 and derive the next state decoder and output decoder logic. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Draw the schematic diagram to complete the design of synchronous sequential circuits. </li></ul></ul></ul>
    49. 49. Odd and Even Parity Generator <ul><li>A parity generator is a two terminal circuit i.e. with one input and one output. </li></ul><ul><li>It receives coded messages in serial format and adds a parity bit to every m-bit message. However, the resultant m + 1 bit message is an error detecting code. </li></ul><ul><li>It can be of two types on the basis of parity bit: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Odd parity generator : In this, a parity bit 1 is generated if there are even number of 1s in the m-bit message. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Even parity generator : In this, a parity bit 1 is generated if there are odd number of 1s in the m-bit message. </li></ul></ul>
    50. 50. Algorithmic State Machines <ul><li>Algorithmic State Machines (ASMs) can be used for representing synchronous sequential circuits like Moore and Mealy models. </li></ul><ul><li>It involves a flow-chart representation of the desired sequential network behavior. </li></ul><ul><li>It can characterize complex systems easily as compared to the conventional state diagrams. </li></ul><ul><li>The features of timing of an ASM are: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The transition and stable period divides each state time in two slots. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The transition period is the time duration when the next state and output variables change. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The time slot at which these values are usable is called stable period. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The state time must be greater than the transition period for an effective operation of an ASM. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The conditional and state outputs both can occur in the same ASM. </li></ul>
    51. 51. Algorithmic State Machine Charts <ul><li>These resemble the flow-charts used in software design but the difference lies in time interpretation. </li></ul><ul><li>These use a collection of box-like symbols to represent each event occurring in a particular state time. </li></ul><ul><li>These describe a sequence of time intervals and the next state behaviour of the system that should be uniquely defined. </li></ul><ul><li>It has three basic components: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>State box </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Decision box </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Conditional Output box </li></ul></ul>
    52. 52.

Multiplexed Display System (contd..) <ul><li>It has two major categories: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Character-oriented display </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pixel-oriented display </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The advantages of multiplexed display system are as follows: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It only requires one 7-segment decoder to display all the intended values. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It requires less number of wires. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The power consumption is also less in this system. </li></ul></ul>
    105. 105. Dot Matrix Display System <ul><li>Dot matrix display has the superior character font. </li></ul><ul><li>The LED’s of dot matrix display system are arranged in rows and columns. </li></ul><ul><li>It is used as alphanumeric display in those equipments, which requires a simple display system having limited resolution. </li></ul><ul><li>Clocks, digital thermometers and railway departure display are some equipments that uses dot matrix display system. </li></ul>
    106. 106. Digital Voltmeter <ul><li>Digital voltmeter (DVM) helps to measure voltage between two points. </li></ul><ul><li>It can either display dc or ac voltage as discrete numerals. </li></ul><ul><li>It is used as a building block in digital instrument systems. </li></ul><ul><li>DVM is also used in data processing systems. </li></ul>
    107. 107.

    108. 108. Digital Multimeter <ul><li>Digital multimeter (DMM) is an instrument which is used to measure current, voltage and resistance. </li></ul><ul><li>It uses a series of current sensing registers to measure ac or dc current. </li></ul><ul><li>It measures the resistance by applying a known current to the unknown resistance. </li></ul><ul><li>DMM provides high input resistance, greater accuracy, better resolution and easy readability. </li></ul>
    109. 109. Chapter 16 HDL for Digital Circuits
    110. 110. Chapter Objectives <ul><li>Understand the use of VHSIC Hardware Description Language (VHDL) </li></ul><ul><li>Understand the data flow description and structural description used in the VHDL design </li></ul><ul><li>Understand the behavioral description used in the VHDL design </li></ul><ul><li>Understand the use of simulator in the VHDL design </li></ul><ul><li>Understand the different data types and operators used in the VHDL design </li></ul><ul><li>Understand the use of VHDL libraries </li></ul>
    111. 111. VHSIC Hardware Description Language <ul><li>Hardware Description Language (HDL) is used for designing and testing the functions of various digital circuits. </li></ul><ul><li>VHDL is an acronym which stands for VHSIC HDL. VHSIC stands for Very High Speed Integrated Circuit. </li></ul><ul><li>It is used for the documentation, verification and synthesis of large digital designs. </li></ul><ul><li>It saves a lot of design effort because all the three objectives can be achieved by the same VHDL code. </li></ul><ul><li>For describing the hardware VHDL uses the following three approaches: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Data flow description </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Structural description </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Behavioral description </li></ul></ul>
    112. 112. Data Flow Description <ul><li>It is one of the three approaches that is followed for a VHDL design. </li></ul><ul><li>In this approach, every part of the VHDL design is considered as a block. </li></ul><ul><li>Each block in VHDL is analogous to a standard part known as entity. </li></ul><ul><li>The entity has a separate part associated with it, which describes how the corresponding block behaves. </li></ul>
    113. 113. Structural Description <ul><li>It is the second approach among the three approaches used for describing hardware design with VHDL. </li></ul><ul><li>This approach defines the basic building blocks of design using entities and their associated architecture. </li></ul><ul><li>Once the basic block is defined, it describes the way of combining and linking these blocks together in a structural manner. </li></ul><ul><li>The structural description of a design is simply a textual description of the schematic that describes netlist. </li></ul><ul><li>A netlist is a list of components and their interconnection. </li></ul>
    114. 114. Behavioral Description <ul><li>Behavioral description approach to modeling hardware components is different from the previous two approaches. </li></ul><ul><li>It is basically the black box approach to modeling. </li></ul><ul><li>It accurately models what happens on the inputs and the way it is guided towards the outputs. </li></ul><ul><li>It is not concerned with the internal working of the box. </li></ul>
    115. 115. Simulators <ul><li>These use dataflow description to model the design. </li></ul><ul><li>The scheme used to model a VHDL design is known as discrete event time simulation. </li></ul><ul><li>When an event occur on a signal, it changes the value of the signal. </li></ul><ul><li>The values of signals are updated only when certain event occurs at the discrete instance of time. </li></ul><ul><li>Since one event causes another, simulation proceeds in sequence. </li></ul>
    116. 116. Simulators (contd..) <ul><li>It maintains a list of events that needs to be processed. </li></ul><ul><li>All the events of the list are processed in each round. </li></ul><ul><li>Any newly produced event is placed in the separate list for processing at a latter round. </li></ul>
    117. 117. Data types <ul><li>Bit_vector : It is a predefined data type, which represents the collection of bits. These collection of bits together represent a binary number in a design. </li></ul><ul><li>Time : It is another predefined data type of signal, which is used to represent the values of time. It has two parts, a number and a unit name. The predefined unit names of type time are sec (seconds), ms (milliseconds), ns (nanoseconds), ps (picoseconds) and fs (femtoseconds). </li></ul>
    118. 118. Operators <ul><li>Logical operators : These operators are used to perform logical operations. Some of the logical operators are AND, OR, NOT, NAND, NOR and XOR. </li></ul><ul><li>Arithmetic operators : These operators are used to perform arithmetic operations. Some of the arithmetic operators are +, -, * and /. </li></ul><ul><li>Relational operators : These operators are used to represent relationship between two data. The result of all relation operators is a Boolean value (TRUE or FALSE). Some of the relational operators are =, /=, <, <=, > and >=. </li></ul>
    119. 119. Operator (contd..) <ul><li>Concatenation operator : The concatenation operator (&) is a built-in VHDL operator, which is used to concatenate bit_vectors. </li></ul>
    120. 120. VHDL Libraries <ul><li>VHDL libraries contain some packages, which are used in the VHDL design. </li></ul><ul><li>These libraries can be declared in VHDL using two lines of codes, one containing the name of the library and other containing a use clause. </li></ul><ul><li>Generally, the following three packages are required in a design: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ieee.std_logic_1164 from the ieee library </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>standard from std library </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>work from work library </li></ul></ul>
