Project Details

The goal of this project was to use skills used in previous projects, and to explore and learn new skills in Xilinx to create a 4×4 binary multiplier. The circuit was designed using structural representations of the components within the larger top-level design. The students became familiar with design hierarchy, that is, working from the bottom up, creating low-level circuit components, and then linking them together in a top-level model. The students also created a VHDL Test Bench to confirm that the design of the circuit was functioning properly.
