Hardware Descriptive Language


Hardware Description Language is a specialized language that is used to describe the structure and behavior of digital logic circuits.


HDL allows for analysis or simulation of an electric circuit by using precise and formal descriptions of the circuit. THe 2 major languages in use are VHDL and Verilog. VHDL is a strongly typed language that is easier to read and more natural to use, while verilog is weakly typed, but has less code to write and has similarities to the C language.
