Verilog download, free from a PLD manufacturer, Xilinx. The download is very large. You'll find the program here:
Xilinx Verilog download
(restricted to Xilinx parts)
; download ISE, NOT VORNADO.
Click on ISE (you'll get the free Weback), register, and download version 14.7, the most recent (and last , any sub-revision. You do not need the ModelSim simulator, and when you create a project should choose
the ISE simulator, not the Modelsim simulator.
Note on Xilinx ISE, more generally: Verilog and ABEL

As I'm sure you've heard, Harvard is closed on what would have been our first class day, Tuesday, Jan. 27.
We'll essentially abandon that class day. It includes just one important notion that may be new to you: Thevenin's Theorem or his "model"
of resistive circuits. We will talk of Thevenin on Thursday (Jan. 29) and then will hurry on into the more interesting (and challenging) material of Day 2.
Here are the typed classnotes for Day2. Please look through these, and leaf through Lab 2 so you'll know what's coming.
Class 2 notes: RC's (typed)
Spring INFORMATION: January 12, 2015
Course Information: intro and schedule
We will hold a normal class and lab on the very first day, Tues., Jan. 27: Please read class and lab notes for Day 1 before you come in.
The course meets in Science Center 206
