Abstract:

The Institute for Defense Analyses Summer Study on Hardware Description Language met from June 1 through June 12, 1981, for the purpose of determining the goals and requirements for a VHSIC-level hardware description language VHDL. Three major results were accomplished. First, the behavioral, structural hierarchical, and other requirements that such a language would need to fulfill to meet DoD VHSIC were detailed. Second, the existing Texas Instruments HDL was examined and a group of changes and additions were recommended resulting in WHDL which meets many of the requirements of VHDL. Third, determination was made of those features of Ada which would be needed for VHDL and additional constructs outside of Ada which would be required. Author
