VHDL-2008 Why It Matters

VHDL-2008 Why It Matters Course | Subject Matter Expert - Jim Lewis | Design and Verification Languages Topic

VHDL-2008 matters because it facilitates advanced verification, adds reusable data structures, simplifies RTL coding and adds fixed and floating point math packages. VHDL-2008 is the largest change to VHDL since 1993; this Verification Academy course is designed to explain the value of the new VHDL-2008 improvements for both Design and Verification Engineers. It is time to start using the new language features to simplify your RTL coding and facilitate the creation of advanced verification environments.

You are encouraged to first view Evolving Verification Capabilities by Harry Foster that provides the framework for all of the Academy courses.
