1/27/2011 2 What is VHDL? circle6 VHDL was developed as a standard design and documentation language for the VHSIC (Very High Speed Integrated Circuits) program by the U.S. Department of Defense in 1981. VHDL = VHSIC Hardware Description language. circle6 IBM, TI and Intermetrics under Defense contract developed VHDL 2.0 in 1983. This version allowed only concurrent statements. VHDL 6.0 released in 1984 incorporated sequential statements and other improvements. circle6 In 1987, IEEE approved a VHDL standard (VHDL 1076 – 1987) based on version 7.2 release called LRM (Language Reference Manual). circle6 In 1993, IEEE announced a new IEEE standard for VHDL (VHDL’93 - IEEE 1164 Standard). circle6 Viewlogic, Altera, Cadence, Synopsis, Mentor, Verilog, etc., have implemented a subset of VHDL with VHDL simulators.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
