More commonly associated with SystemVerilog, IDEs can also greatly help users of the popular HDL for FPGA, mil/aero and other designs.
Power intent files have increased efficiency and the use of an IDE can prevent them becoming outdated as a design evolves.
Refactoring saves time and resuources by converting code to a common format and eliminates redundancies to make it more readable and maintainable.
An IDE designed to catch typographical errors, missing declarations and inconsistent references in your code can hugely reduce your time in debug.
Text editors have major debug limitations that the use of hyperlinks in integrated development environments help you overcome.
A static-analysis tool that checks for errors in HDL code, lint is becoming an increasingly important addition to simulation for RTL and SoC signoff.
The FPGA vendor's new flagship is now on public release. It adds an array of features, including support for system-level to HDL synthesis.
VHDL is a hardware description language with rich constructs that can model complex systems. It can also be constrained for use as the starting point of an FPGA or ASIC design.
An overview of the Open Source VHDL Verification Methodology and two of the libraries it uses.
SystemVerilog, the standard that originated from Accellera and is now IEEE1800, is not just for Verilog users. VHDL users can also improve their design processes using its proven verification features. Anyone involved in systemon- chip (SoC) design may face a mixed-language environment and will appreciate being able to leverage SystemVerilog with the VHDL portions of […]
