Verilogger Pro DDK is used in the
course. Students use Verilogger Pro to write code to implement computer
components such as register files, finite state machines, arithmetic/logic
units, processor pipelines, and cache. The course gives hands on experience
on the usage of the tool and its applications.
Verilogger Pro is installed in all machines at STH135 and
STH136. After you log on, you can click on the Start Menu, Programs,
Computer Science Software, Synapticad and then run the Verilogger Pro. Once
you do that, you will be inside Verilogger Pro's IDE and now you can design
and develop your own components like the adder, multiplexer, parity checker

All tools are packaged
together in one install file. After you install the downloaded file, go to
the SynaptiCAD program group on the Start Menu and choose the package that
you wish to use. By default the products start in evaluation mode. In this
mode, files cannot be saved. A 2 week evaluation license can be obtained
from SynaptiCAD to fully enable the software. All evaluation versions can
also be converted to full versions using an appropriate license from
SynaptiCAD, without any further downloading.
