**OPERATORS**

Verilog
has large number of operators.

**1. Binary Arithmetic
Operators**

Binary
arithmetic operators operate on two operands. Register and net (wire) operands
are treated as unsigned. However, real and integer operands may be signed. If
any bit is unknown ('**x**') then result
is unknown.

**2. Operator ** **Name**

**3. Relational Operators**

Relational
operators compare two operands and return a logical value, i. e., TRUE(1) or
FALSE(0). If any bit is unknown, the relation is ambiguous and the result is
unknown.

**Operator** **Name**

> Greater than

>= Greater than or equal

< Less than

<= Less than or equal

== Logical equality

!= Logical inequality

**4. Logical Operators**

Logical
operators operate on logical operands and return a logical value, i. e.,
TRUE(1) or FALSE(0). Used typically in **if**
and **while** statements. Do not confuse
logical operators with the bitwise Boolean operators. For example , ! is a
logical NOT and ~ is a bitwise NOT. The first negates, e. g., !(5 == 6) is
TRUE. The second complements the bits, e. g., ~{1,0,1,1} is 0100.

**5. Bitwise Operators**

**Operator** **Name**

! Logical negation

&& Logical AND

|| Logical OR

Bitwise
operators operate on the bits of the operand or operands. For example, the
result of A & B is the AND of each corresponding bit of A with B. Operating
on an unknown (**x**) bit results in the
expected value. For example, the AND of an **x**
with a FALSE is an **x**. The OR of an **x** with a TRUE is a TRUE.

**Operator** **Name**

~ Bitwise negation

& Bitwise AND

| Bitwise OR

^ Bitwise XOR

~& Bitwise NAND

~| Bitwise NOR

**6. Unary Reduction
Operators**

Unary
reduction operators produce a single bit result from applying the operator to
all of the bits of the operand. For example, **&A** will **AND** all the
bits of **A**.

**7. Unary Arithmetic
Operators**

**Operator : Name**** : ****Comments**

- ** : **Unary Minus ** : **Changes sign of its operand.
