What type of language is VHDL?

VHDL is a general-purpose programming language optimized for electronic circuit design. As such, there are many points in the overall design process at which VHDL can help.

Is Verilog a language?

Verilog, standardized as IEEE 1364, is a hardware description language (HDL) used to model electronic systems. It is most commonly used in the design and verification of digital circuits at the register-transfer level of abstraction.

Which software is used for VHDL programming?

VHDL simulators

Simulator name License Supported languages
FreeHDL GPL2+ VHDL-1987, VHDL-1993
GHDL GPL2+ VHDL-1987, VHDL-1993, VHDL-2002, partial VHDL-2008
Icarus Verilog GPL2+
NVC GPL-3.0-or-later IEEE 1076-2002, VHDL-1993, subset of VHDL-2008

Is VHDL programming hard?

The syntax is different (with Verilog looking very much like C, and VHDL looking more like Pascal or Ada), but basic concepts are the same. Both languages are easy to learn, but hard to master. Once you have learned one of these languages, you will have no trouble transitioning to the other.
