Chapter 14. Logic Synthesis with Verilog HDL

Advances in logic synthesis have pushed HDLs into the forefront of digital design technology. Logic synthesis tools have cut design cycle times significantly. Designers can design at a high level of abstraction and thus reduce design time. In this chapter, we discuss logic synthesis with Verilog HDL. Synopsys synthesis products were used for the examples in this chapter, and results for individual examples may vary with synthesis tools. However, the concepts discussed in this chapter are general enough to be applied to any logic synthesis tool.[1] This chapter is intended to give the reader a basic understanding of the mechanics and issues involved in logic synthesis. It is not intended to be comprehensive ...
