Design using Standard Description Languages
VHDL as a hardware description language is becoming even more popular in the field of the development of digital hardware and it offers a wide range of possibilities for dealing with ever increasing requirements. The following sections, along with several examples, give a basis for the practical interpretation and present an approach to problem solving for frequently asked questions. The sections follow on systematically, bringing together the different aspects to give an overall picture. The aim therefore is not only to present a complete syntactical language description, but to emphasize the important elements used in the practical implementation of a synthesizable design.
