Writing Synthesizable Code for FPGAs The Verilog language reference manual (LRM) provides a rich set of capabilities to describe hardware. However, only a subset of the language is synthesizable for FPGA. Even if a particular language structure is synthesizable, that doesn’t guarantee that the code will pass physical implementation for a specific FPGA. Consider the following example. reg [7:0] memory[1:2**22]; initial begin memory[1] = 8’h1; memory[2] = 8’h2; end The example will simulate correctly but will result in FPGA physical implementation failure.

Depends on the synthesis tool. =). 2-state vs. 4-state values 4-state values (‘0’, ‘1’, ‘x’, ‘z’) are inherently not synthesizable. FPGA architecture only supports 2-state values (logic ‘0’ and ‘1’), and synthesis tools will apply different rules to optimize ‘z’ and ‘x’ values during the synthesis process. That will cause a mismatch between synthesis and simulation results (also see Tip #59) and other side effects. Only use ‘z’ values during the implementation of tri-stated IO buffers. translate_on/translate_off compiler directives translate_off and translate_on directives instruct synthesis tools to ignore portions of a Verilog code.
