History of VHDL
Designed by IBM, Texas Instruments, andIntermetrics as part of the DoD funded VHSICprogramStandardized by the IEEE in 1987: IEEE 1076-1987Enhanced version of the language defined in 1993:IEEE 1076-1993Additional standardized packages provide definitionsof data types and expressions of timing data
 –IEEE 1164 (data types) –IEEE 1076.3 (numeric) –IEEE 1076.4 (timing)

Traditional vs. Hardware DescriptionLanguages
Procedural programming languages provide the
how 
or recipes
 –for computation –for data manipulation –for execution on a specific hardware model
Hardware description languages
describe
a system
 –Systems can be described from many different points of view
Behavior: what does it do?Structure: what is it composed of?Functional properties: how do I interface to it?Physical properties: how fast is it?
 
(5)
Usage
Descriptions can be at different levels of abstraction
 –Switch level: model switching behavior of transistors –Register transfer level: model combinational and sequentiallogic components –Instruction set architecture level: functional behavior of amicroprocessor 
Descriptions can used fo
 –Simulation
Verification, performance evaluation
 –Synthesis
First step in hardware design
(6)
Why do we Describe Systems?
Design Specification
 –unambiguous definition of components and interfaces in alarge design
Design Simulation
 –verify system/subsystem/chip performance prior to designimplementation
Design Synthesis
 –automated generation of a hardware design
