# Logic Gates Verilog Code

Logic gates are the building block of digital circuit and system. We can make any digital circuit using logic gates. The are three basic logic gates AND, OR and NOT gate, two universal gate NAND and NOR and two other logic gates Ex-OR and EX-NOR. In this post, how to write Verilog code for logic gates is descussed.

There are three Verilog codes for each logic gate, you can use any one code.

## NOT gate has one input and one output and both are complement of each other. If input is 1 output is 0 and vice versa. The truth table of NOT gate is given below and we can write bolean expression of NOT gate as $$y = \overline a \text{ or } y = a'$$ $$\text{Where a is input and y is output}$$ NOT Gate Truth Table Input a Output y 0 1 1 0

### NOT Gate Verilog Code

//NOT gate using Structural modeling
module not_gate_s(a,y);
input a;
output y;

not(y,a);

endmodule

//NOT gate using data flow modeling
module not_gate_d(a,y);
input a;
output y;

assign y = ~a;

endmodule

//NOT gate using behavioural modeling
module not_gate_b(a,y);
input a;
output reg y;

always @ (a)
y = ~a;

endmodule


### NOT Gate Testbench

module not_gate_tb;
reg a;
wire y;

not_gate_s uut(a,y);

initial begin
a = 0;
#10
b = 1;
#10
$finish(); end endmodule ## AND Gate AND gate has many inputs (it can be two or more than two inputs) and one output. Output of the AND gate is 1 if and only if all of the inputs are 1. The truth table of 2-input AND gate is given below and we can write boolean expression for AND gate as follows $$y = ab \text{ or } y = a.b$$ ### AND Gate Truth Table ###### Input a ###### Input b ###### Output y 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 0 1 1 1 ### AND Gate Verilog Code //AND gate using Structural modeling module and_gate_s(a,b,y); input a,b; output y; and(y,a,b); endmodule  //AND gate using data flow modeling module and_gate_d(a,b,y); input a,b; output y; assign y = a & b; endmodule  //AND gate using behavioural modeling module nAND_gate_b(a,b,y); input a; output y; always @ (a,b) y = a & b; endmodule  ### AND Gate Testbench module and_gate_tb; reg a,b; wire y; and_gate_s uut(a,b,y); initial begin a = 0; b = 0; #10 b = 0; b = 1; #10 a = 1; b = 0; #10 b = 1; b = 1; #10$finish();
end

endmodule ## OR Gate

OR gate has many inputs (it can be two or more than two inputs) and one output. Output of the OR gate is 1 if one or more than one inputs are 1. The truth table of 2-input OR gate is given below and we can write boolean expression for OR gate as follows $$y = a + b$$ 0
