Digital Basics Tutorial.

Initial statements with examples are discussed in this section. Also discussed are clocks and resets generation logic using forever loop and not operator.

Statements within initial block are used in Verilog for generating test signals, example clocks, resets etc.

Initial statements can’t be synthesized because actual behavior of hardware is difficult to model using fixed delays. These statements are used only for testbench purposes and to initialize the values at zero simulation time.

Clock & Reset generation code: 

// Register declarations

reg clk_1fs;  

reg clk_1fs_d;  

reg rst_n;


// Use of initial statement to generate clocks 1fs and 1fs_d

initial begin 

     clk_1fs = 0; 

     clk_1fs_d = 0; 

     rst_n = 0;

     #100 rst_n = 1;

     forever begin

         #10 clk_1fs = 1;

         #11 clk_1fs_d = 1;

         #10 clk_1fs = 0;

         #11 clk_1fs_d = 0;

end end




reg clk;
reg rstn;
/* Initial block to generate clock and reset */
   clk = 0;  rstn = 0;  #100 rstn = 1;
   forever begin
       #10 clk = !clk;  end
