Part of the VHDL program is to define a support environment for the VHSIC hardware description language. This support environmentis both an open-ended integration framework for what is expected to be a growing list of tools interfaced to VHDL, and a specificset of software which is being implemented in Phase B of the program. The specific software under development as part of theDoD VHDL program includes an analyzer, simulator, simplifier, reverse analyzer, and design library manager. This article summarizesthe design and documentation capabilities offered the digital electronics designer by the VHDL toolset.
