Advantages:

Prerequisites:

Command-line parameters:

You can use an existent HDL-FSM-Editor project file as command line parameter.


Control-Tab:

Here you define several items which control the generation of the HDL-design, which are:


Interface-Tab:

Here you define the interface of your FSM, this means all inputs, outputs, parameters, libraries.


Internals-Tab:

Here you define the internally used signals of your design.


Diagram-Tab:

Here you draw the graphical representation of your FSM.
The following graphical elements are available:

The following editing actions are available:


Generated HDL-Tab:

Here the generated HDL files are displayed for reading.

  • Each generation replaces the old code with the new code.
  • The generated HDL can be loaded into an editor by "Ctrl-e".
  • When a code line is linked to the graph in the "Diagram-Tab", then the code line will be underlined, when the mouse pointer is at it.
  • To follow the link the user must press the left mouse button together with the Ctrl-key.
  • The diagram element which represents the code line will then be shown and highlighted.

  • Compile Messages Tab:

    The STDOUT and STDERR messages of the compile command appear in this tab.

    Here you can find links to 5 designs which I have created.
    All designs are created by HDL-SCHEM-Editor and HDL-FSM-Editor and most of the designs are based at VHDL (only for division also Verilog is available).
    By the link you will find all the needed source-files for both tools and also the generated VHDL/Verilog-files.
