Hi guys, I'm familiar with using FPGAs and with Verilog and VHDL so I'm able to do a fair bit with it. But I have difficulty when reading somebody else's code. For example, I have this large project which uses an FPGA and it already contains the code so I'm trying to figure out how the code actually works, but I'm not sure where to start with it. Any guidelines or tips would be appreciated!
In such a case I start with generating a hierarchy diagram to get an overview. The next step is to identify the dataflow. Or vice versa :-) Duke
