You're familiar with flip-flops that are triggered on the positive edge of the clock, or negative edge of the clock. A dual-edge triggered flip-flop is triggered on both edges of the clock. However, FPGAs don't have dual-edge triggered flip-flops, and always @(posedge clk or negedge clk) is not accepted as a legal sensitivity list.

Build a circuit that functionally behaves like a dual-edge triggered flip-flop:

(Note: It's not necessarily perfectly equivalent: The output of flip-flops have no glitches, but a larger combinational circuit that emulates this behaviour might. But we'll ignore this detail here.)

Module Declaration

module top_module (
    input clk,
    input d,
    output q

  • You can't create a dual-edge triggered flip-flop on an FPGA. But you can create both positive-edge triggered and negative-edge triggered flip-flops.
  • This problem is a moderately difficult circuit design problem, but requires only basic Verilog language features. (This is a circuit design problem, not a coding problem.) It may help to first sketch a circuit by hand before attempting to code it.
