Verilog Always Block

Contains one or more statements (procedural assignments, task enables, if, case and loop statements), which are executed repeatedly throughout a simulation run, as directed by their timing controls.

Syntax
always
    Statement

Or

always
    begin
    Statements
    end

 

Where to use:
module
-<HERE>-endmodule

Rules for Using always Statement:
Only registers (reg, integer, real, time, realtime) may be assigned in an
always.

Every always starts executing at the start of simulation, and continues executing throughout simulation; when the last statement in the always is reached, execution continues from the top of the always.

  • An always containing more than one statement must enclose the statements in a begin-end or fork-join block.
  • An always with no timing controls will loop forever.

Synthesis:
always is one of the most useful Verilog statements for synthesis, yet an always is often unsynthesizable. For best results, code should be restricted to one of the following templates:

always @(Inputs) // All the inputs
begin
... // Combinational logic
end

always @(Inputs) // All the inputs
if (Enable)
begin
... // Latched actions
end

always @(posedge Clock) // Clock only
begin
... // Synchronous actions
end

always @(posedge Clock or negedge Reset)
// Clock and Reset only
begin
if (!Reset) // Test active level of asynchronous reset
... // Asynchronous actions
else
... // Synchronous actions
end // Gives flipflops + logic
