A Logic Compiler

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, 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.

HW D1, due Mon., Oct. 20, 5 p.m. This is an undersized HW, since you don't have a full week for it, after the midterm. On this HW, skip the verilog question, #4, since I failed to way a word about Verilog, in class.
