Verilog HDL Syntax And Semantics Part-II

In

Numbers in Verilog

You can specify constant numbers in decimal, hexadecimal, octal, or binary format. Negative numbers are represented in 2's complement form.

 When used in a number, the question mark (?) character is the Verilog alternative for the z character. The underscore character (_) is legal anywhere in a number except as the first character, where it is ignored.

Integer Numbers

Verilog HDL allows integer numbers to be specified as

Syntax: ';

Verilog expands filling the specified by working from right-to-left

Note : X Stands for unknown and Z stands for high impedance, 1 for logic high or 1 and 0 for logic low or 0.

Signed and Unsigned Numbers
Verilog Supports both types of numbers, but with certain restrictions. Like in C language we don't have int and unint types to say if a number is signed integer or unsigned integer.

Any number that does not have negative sign prefix is a positive number. Or indirect way would be "Unsigned".

.

Negative numbers can be specified by putting a minus sign before the size for a constant number, thus they become signed numbers. Verilog internally represents negative numbers in 2's complement format. An optional signed specifier can be added for signed arithmetic

Examples

 

Number

Description

32'hDEAD_BEEF

Unsigned or signed positive number

-14'h1234

Signed negative number

The example file below shows how Verilog treats signed and unsigned numbers.

  1 module signed_number;

  2

  3 reg [31:0]  a;

  4

  5 initial begin

  6   a = 14'h1234;

  7   $display ("Current Value of a = %h", a);

  8   a = -14'h1234;

  9   $display ("Current Value of a = %h", a);

 10   a = 32'hDEAD_BEEF;

 11   $display ("Current Value of a = %h", a);

 12   a = -32'hDEAD_BEEF;

 13   $display ("Current Value of a = %h", a);

 14    #10  $finish;

 15 end

 16

 17 endmodule 

 Current Value of a = 00001234

 Current Value of a = ffffedcc

 Current Value of a = deadbeef

 Current Value of a = 21524111
