Carry adder

This example defines a component with inputs a and b, and a result output. At any time, result will be the sum of a and b (combinatorial). This sum is manually done by a carry adder logic.

class CarryAdder(size : Int) extends Component{
  val io = new Bundle{
    val a = in UInt(size bits)
    val b = in UInt(size bits)
    val result = out UInt(size bits)      //result = a + b

  var c = False                   //Carry, like a VHDL variable
  for (i <- 0 until size) {
    //Create some intermediate value in the loop scope.
    val a = io.a(i)
    val b = io.b(i)

    //The carry adder's asynchronous logic
    io.result(i) := a ^ b ^ c
    c \= (a & b) | (a & c) | (b & c);    //variable assignment

object CarryAdderProject {
  def main(args: Array[String]) {
    SpinalVhdl(new CarryAdder(4))
