MOS transistors, tran, tri1 and pullup in Verilog

Honored Contributor II

Hi guys. 


I am a student and i currently started studying Switch Level Modeling in Verilog. And there are some things, that i don't undestand. 


1. MOS transistors are represented as unidirectional gates. Their models are almost similar to bufif elements, rather then to the electrical models of transistors. What are the reasons of using such a poor model? (there is no need of using more complex model, or more complex model can't be implemented in terms of event-driven modeling) 


2. What it is the difference between using tri1 net and connecting to the wire a pullup gate? When should i use first and second? 


3. What is the difference between wire and connection of 2 elements with tran element?
