Title: VHDL Synthesis for High-Reliability Systems


1
VHDL Synthesis for High-Reliability Systems
  • 2004 MAPLD International Conference
  • Washington, D.C.
  • September 7, 2004

2
Seminar Leaders And Practicing Design Engineers
Jonathan Alexander Actel Corporation Rod
Barto NASA Office of Logic Design Melanie
Berg Ball Aerospace Jeff Cotner NASA Johnson
Space Center Marty Fraeman Applied Physics
Laboratory Rich Katz NASA Office of Logic
Design Igor Kleyner NASA Office of Logic Design

Training vs. Education
  • The NASA Office of Logic Design works to educate
    design engineers, not train them.
  • Training promotes rote responses
  • Education promotes thinking and the ability to
    adapt to and cope with new situations.
  • Hence, MAPLD hosts seminars and not training
    sessions.

Design Seminars
  • The field is complex and dynamic and most
    definitely not static.
  • Most examples are from or are derived from actual
    flight designs and are not academic exercises.
  • Many ways to accomplish functions, some better
    than others, often depending on the situation.
  • Contribute Discuss the topics presented,
    disagree with them, present interesting cases you
    wish to share, and present better ideas.
  • Do not sit there quietly and expect to be treated
    like a cocker spaniel being trained and drilled
    to emit Pavlovian responses in response to
    stimuli (bell for dogs, donuts for engineers).

5
Material
  • Material will be made available on
  • CD-ROM
  • Hardcopy
  • klabs.org
  • All public domain, you may use the material as
    you wish.

Barto's Law Every circuit is considered guilty
until proven innocent.

VHDL Code
entity EDGE_DETECT_SYNC is generic (
RESET_LEVEL STD_LOGIC '1' ) port (
CLK in STD_LOGIC RESET
in STD_LOGIC INPUT in STD_LOGIC

out STD_LOGIC ) end EDGE_DETECT_SYNC arch
itecture BEHAVIORAL of EDGE_DETECT_SYNC is
signal IN_BETWEEN STD_LOGIC signal DATA_OUT

if (RESET RESET_LEVEL) then IN_BETWEEN
lt '0' elsif rising_edge(CLK) then
IN_BETWEEN lt INPUT end if end
process FF2 process(RESET, CLK) begin
if (RESET RESET_LEVEL) then DATA_OUT
lt '0' elsif rising_edge(CLK) then
DATA_OUT lt IN_BETWEEN end if end
process LED_OUT lt (not DATA_OUT) and
IN_BETWEEN TED_OUT lt DATA_OUT and (not
IN_BETWEEN) end BEHAVIORAL
