Re: verilog

Hi sum@

First of all please write better questions, be as minimal as possible, format your code. It is hard to find the root of the problem. Read this guide.

Use only **synchronous processes**, and use **only synthetisable construct** in your design. (Non synthetisable construct wont be compiled to HW :).

**Concrete:**

**Dont use: sig_in as clock**:

//... always @ (posedge sig_in) begin if(rst) //...

Use edge detector instead.

**Dont use while loop inside an always block**

(this is what cause the hanging of the simulation)

//...

always @ (posedge sig_in) begin if(rst) start <= 1'b0; else if(enable) begin if(count == 5'b00000) beginwhile(sig_in == 1'b1) begin cx1 <= cx1 + 1'b1; endwhile(sig_in == 1'b0) begin cy1 <= cy1 + 1'b1; end count <= count + 1'b1; end

//...

The problem is that the simulator cannot leave that while loop, because sig_in will never go to '0'.

Re: verilog

I fully agree with @betontalpfa on all points.

The key thing to understand is that everything inside a block happens in effectively zero time. This is not a microcontroller where you can use "while" as a delay loop. When using blocking assignment, Vivado will try to act as if the operations happen sequentially - but really they're all being computed simultaneously. As a result, if sig_in == 1 when this block triggers (which it will be, because the block is triggered on the rising edge of sig_in) then that 'while" loop is going to run once, taking zero time. sig_in is still 1 (because zero time has passed), so the loop runs again. And again. And again. And again. And it would go on for infinite times, except that the simulator stops it.

Related to that, the second "while" loop can never trigger. Everything in this block runs in zero time. sig_in == 1 when the block starts, and so sig_in will always be 1 when the block is running. It can never be zero inside this block.

As a general rule, "while" loops are a bad idea in HDL. Vivado/ISE will fully unroll every loop they find, because that's the only way to make all the logic run simultaneously. With a "for" loop, this normally isn't a problem - the loop has a fixed number of iterations, and Vivado builds that many instances of the loop hardware. With a "while" loop, how many instances should it build? One? Ten? Ten Million?
