Superseded Standard

IEEE 1076-2008

IEEE Standard VHDL Language Reference Manual

VHSIC Hardware Description Language (VHDL) is defined. VHDL is a formal notation intended for use in all phases of the creation of electronic systems. Because it is both machine readable and human readable, it supports the development, verification, synthesis, and testing of hardware designs; the communication of hardware design data; and the maintenance, modification, and procurement of hardware. Its primary audiences are the implementors of tools supporting the language and the advanced users of the language.

P1076

Standard for VHDL Language Reference Manual

This standard defines the syntax and semantics of the Verification and Hardware Description Language (VHDL). Previous versions of this standard abbreviate VHDL as VHSIC Hardware Description Language with VHSIC standing for Very High Speed Integrated Circuits. In this standard, replacing the meaning of 'V' in VHDL to Verification reflects the language's increasing usage for verification as well as design.
