The software will automatically put bends in the line for you. If you need to do more things to tidy the diagram up, you can change to Select mode and drag the symbols and wires around. The end result should be Figure 3-8. indd 33 8/27/16 9:31 AM 34 Programming FPGAs: Getting Started with Verilog Figure 3-7 The logic gates in position.

Although this book is primarily about programming FPGAs using Verilog, before jumping into Verilog, Chapter 3 shows you how to program your FPGA board by drawing logic diagrams using gates and flip-flops. indd 26 8/27/16 9:30 AM 3 Drawing Logic The ISE design tool gives you two ways of programming your FPGA. One is to draw a familiar logic diagram, and the second is to use a hardware description language (HDL) such as Verilog. We will start with the schematic approach, although seasoned FPGA designers nearly always use Verilog or its rival VHSIC Hardware Description Language (VHDL).

The screen is divided into four main areas. On the top left, you have the Project View. This is where you can find the various files that make up the project. It is organized as a tree structure. Initially, there are two entries in this area. There is the entry that says “data_selector,” and the second entry that has an automatically generated name (xc6slx9-2tqg144) based on the device type and package. The latter will eventually contain two files, the schematic drawing that we are about to create and an “implementation constraints” file that defines how the inputs and outputs in the schematic connect to the actual switches and LEDs on the FPGA board.
