Vector Arithmetic with Numeric_std

After many requests we have finally put the handy "cut-out and keep" diagrams of IEEE.numeric_std here on the website. These diagrams are in our Comprehensive VHDL course notes, but not in the VHDL Golden Reference Guide - enjoy!

Design Tips

These articles are all not VHDL-specific but are certainly relevant to engineers using VHDL.

VHDL Models

Here you will find a collection of VHDL example models. Please note that very few are synthesisable; most are behavioural models that may be useful in the verification of digital systems, but would not themselves be part of that system.

VHDL PaceMaker

VHDL PaceMaker is a self-teach tutorial that gives you a great foundation in the basics of the VHDL language. VHDL PaceMaker is no longer sold as a product, but is still available as a free download.

Note that VHDL PaceMaker requires a 32-bit version of Windows to run. PaceMaker will not run under a 64-bit version of Windows.
