Standardization is a necessity if technology is to move forward expeditiously and efficiently. Most industry research and development is geared towards immediate goals. Consequently standardization is needed to speed breakthroughs and permit technology transfer to manufacturing to take place quickly. VHDL will be an industry wide 'common language' for electronic design. Accepting new standards has an up front cost to the industry. Consequently the size of the potential (future) payback will determine the enthusiasm with which it will be accepted or absorbed into the 'system'.<
