What is VHDL? c 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. c 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. c In 1987, IEEE approved a VHDL standard (VHDL 1076 – 1987) based on version 7.2 release called LRM (Language Reference Manual). c In 1993, IEEE announced a new IEEE standard for VHDL (VHDL’93 - IEEE 1164 Standard)....
