Lab 3: Simple Calculator – Register Transfer Level Design with

Datapath + Finite State Machine (FSM) based Control Unit

(3%)

Background

This simple calculator can perform three different operations: addition,

subtraction, and multiplication of two positive decimal numbers, where each

number can be up to two decimal digits (i.e. 00 to 99).

The actual hardware implementation uses some simple but common interfaces: a

4x4 matrix keypad for entering inputs into the FPGA chip and four 7-segment

displays for displaying outputs from the chip. The conceptual illustration of the

calculator is presented in Figure 1.

Calculator (FPGA) Calculator (FPGA) 44

. Figure 1: Calculator and its inputs/outputs

The 4x4 matrix keypad consists of 16 keys. Keys 0 to 9 on the keypad are used

for entering decimal digits, and keys A to F are used to set the different operations

as detailed in Table 1.

Table 1: Calculator key representations

Key Operation

A Calculator ON key, performs global reset (emulates power-ON function)

B Execute key, performs equal (=) operation

C Clear key, clears current result and reinitialises all registers of the calculator to 0

D Multiply key, performs multiplication on the two input operands

E Subtract key, performs subtraction on the two input operands

F Add key, performs addition on the two input operands

After the calculator is designed and implemented on the DE0 FPGA board, a user

should press key A, which mimics power-ON and initialises the calculator to a

known initial state. The same key can be used at any stage to mimic the powerON

operation. By pressing key A, all internal registers of the calculator are

initialised to zero (i.e. reset).

The user can then enter a positive decimal number of up to two digits (numbers

from 0 to 99) by pressing the number keys (0 to 9) one after another. Individual

digits are represented with their binary 4-bit codes (BCD). All entered numbers

are considered positive. The entered digits will be displayed on the 7-segment

displays, so the user knows which number was entered during this step.

The entered digits are internally stored in a shift register (Reg_A) that receives 4

bits (i.e. one decimal digit) at a time and always stores the last two entered digits;

all previously entered digits will be overwritten. These two digits represent the

first operand (operandA).

After entering the first operand, the user can press one of the operation keys: D

for multiplication, E for subtraction or F for addition operation. The 4-bit binary

code of the operation will be stored in the Reg_OP register.

After specifying the operation, the second operand (operandB) can be entered and

displayed on the 7-segment display in the same way as the first operand. This

operand will be stored internally in a shift register (Reg_B).

Once both operands and the operation are entered, the user can press key B to

perform the actual operation. The result is stored in a result register (Reg_R) and

displayed on the 7-segment display. If the user then wants to perform another

operation on a new set of operands, key C should be pressed to clear all internal

registers and 7-segment displays.

Based on these specifications, we can be certain that the range of input values are

from 0 to 99 and the range of output values are from 0 to 9801 (99x99), which

can be displayed on four 7-segment display. (Assuming that operandA is always

bigger than operandB, so no negative number will be produced as the output of

the calculator.)

To design this simple calculator, you can assume that you have the following

components made available to you:

1. Shift register: The provided shift register is 8-bit wide (i.e. can store two

4-bit digits). It has a reset and load_enable control input, and 4-bit data

input. When reset input is set to 1, the shift register content will be cleared

to zero. When load_enable input is 1, the number stored in the least

significant 4-bit will be transferred to the most significant 4-bit locations,

and the 4-bit input data will be stored into the least significant 4-bit

locations.

2. Register: The provided register is either 4-bit wide (for storing operation)

or 16-bit wide (for storing result). The register has load_enable control

input. When load_enable is 1, the input data will be stored in the register.

3. Arithmetic unit: The provided arithmetic unit can perform addition,

subtraction and multiplication according to a 4-bit binary code of the

operation, op_sel, where 1111 is for addition, 1110 is for subtraction, and

1101 is for multiplication.

4. Multiplexer: The provided multiplexer selects which number to be

displayed on the output interface (i.e. the 7-segment displays). The

University of Auckland Lab 3 COMPSYS201 - 2020

multiplexer is a 16-bit wide 4-to-1 multiplexer with 2-bit control signal,

disp_sel, where 00 selects operandA for displaying, 01 selects operandB for

displaying, 10 selects result for displaying. You can assume unused I/O pins

are connected to 0s.

The calculator operations are defined by the following register transfer operations,

with their corresponding control signals in Table 2.

Part 1: Design a datapath (1.5%)

Given the available datapath components, i.e. shift register, register, arithmetic

unit, and multiplexer. Design a datapath of the simple calculator as a block

diagram. The datapath is encircled by the dashed line in the figure (next page).

The datapath receives data input (i.e. numbers, operations, reset) from the

keypad and generates data output to the 7-segment displays (with the help of

interface hardware: the keypad driver and BCD to 7-segment decoder). Depending

on the pressed key, the following single bit control inputs are also generated for

the control unit FSM:

1. digit_in=1: Pressed key is a digit.

2. op_in=1: Pressed key is an operation (i.e. +, -, x).

3. execute_in=1: Key B (=) is pressed.

4. clear_in=1: Key C is pressed.

5. reset=1: Key A is pressed.

Task 1: Draw your datapath design as a block diagram (i.e. show each

internal component as a block), with clear indication of all necessary bus

connections, and control signals for each component. You don’t need to

worry about the internal bus width.

Part 2: Design a control unit FSM (1.5%)

With the designed datapath, design a control unit FSM for it. The control unit is

responsible for coordinating the register transfer operations to achieve the overall

calculator function.

Figure 2 Control Unit Finite State Machine state transition diagram

For this calculator, we have designed an incomplete FSM state transition diagram,

as shown in Figure 2, where we have illustrated the conditions for the state

transitions according to the control inputs, but not the control signal outputs in

each state. The five states are:

• Initial - the calculator control unit FSM goes to the initial state either on

power-reset (which can happen from any state if Key A is pressed) or from

the result state after clear command (if Key C is pressed).

• operandA - in which the calculator receives, stores and displays operand

A.

• operation - in which the operation is received and stored.

• operandB - in which the calculator receives, stores and displays operand

B.

• result - in which the calculator executes the operation, stores and displays

the result, and waits to be reinitialised.

Task 2: Based on your datapath design, complete the table of control

signals provided below, by filling in the values of the control signals in each
