Router

Routing is the process of moving a packet of data from source to destination and enables messages to pass from one computer to another and eventually reach the target machine. A router is a networking device that forwards data packets between computer networks. It is connected to two or more data lines from different networks.

Implementation

In this project, the proposed design of the router includes components like FIFO, register, synchronizer, FSM and input and output signals between them. The register implements 4 internal registers in order to hold a header byte, FIFO full state byte, internal parity and packet parity byte. The synchronizer provides synchronization between router FSM and router FIFO modules. It provides faithful communication between the single input port and three output ports.

States

This router has eight stages:

STATE_DECODE_ADDRESS

Next ==> STATE_LOAD_FIRST_DATA (Sig_Packet_Valid = 1, Sig_Fifo_Empty = 1)

Next ==> STATE_WAIT_TILL_EMPTY (Sig_Packet_Valid = 1, Sig_Fifo_Empty = 0)

STATE_WAIT_TILL_EMPTY

Next ==> STATE_WAIT_TILL_EMPTY (Sig_Fifo_Empty = 1)

Next ==> STATE_LOAD_FIRST_DATA (Sig_Fifo_Empty = 0)

STATE_LOAD_FIRST_DATA

Next ==> STATE_LOAD_DATA

STATE_LOAD_DATA

Next ==> STATE_LOAD_PARITY (Sig_Packet_Valid = 0, Sig_Fifo_Full = 0)

Next ==> STATE_FIFO_FULL (Sig_Fifo_Full = 1)

Next ==> STATE_LOAD_DATA

STATE_LOAD_PARITY

Next ==> STATE_FIFO_FULL (Sig_Fifo_Full = 1)

Next ==> STATE_CHECK_PARITY_ERROR

STATE_FIFO_FULL

Next ==> STATE_FIFO_FULL (Sig_Fifo_Full = 1)

Next ==> STATE_LOAD_AFTER_FULL (Sig_Fifo_Full = 0)

STATE_LOAD_AFTER_FULL

Next ==> STATE_LOAD_DATA (Sig_Parity_Done = 0, Sig_Low_Packet_Valid = 0)

Next ==> STATE_LOAD_PARITY (Sig_Parity_Done = 0, Sig_Low_Packet_Valid = 1)

STATE_CHECK_PARITY_ERROR

Next ==> STATE_FIFO_FULL (Sig_Fifo_Full = 1)

Next ==> STATE_DECODE_ADDRESS (Sig_Fifo_Full = 0)

Dependencies

macOS

This project needs Icarus-Verilog and a VCD viewer.

Building on macOS

  1. Icarus-Verilog can be installed via Homebrew : $ brew install icarus-verilog
  2. Download Scansion from here.
  3. Clone the repository.
  4. $ make simulate will:
  • compile design+TB
  • simulate the verilog design
  1. $ make display will:
  • display waveforms.
