Modeling and Synthesis with Verilog HDL     (3 – 0 – 0 – 3)



  • To design combinational, sequential circuits using Verilog HDL.
  • To understand  behavioral and RTL modeling of digital circuits
  • To verify that a design meets its timing constraints, both manually and through the use of computer aided design tools
  • To simulate, synthesize, and program their designs on a development board
  • To verify and design the digital circuit by means of Computer Aided Engineering tools which involves in programming with the help of Verilog HDL.
