VHDL (VHSIC Hardware Description Language) is such an extremely flexible and versatile language, that the language reference documentation is not sufficient to ensure that models written by one hardware designer will be compatible with another's models. What is required is a set of VHDL modeling conventions and standard packages which structure the usage of VHDL modeling approaches. The issues inherent in VHDL in regards to model compatibility are discussed, and a number of solutions to this problem.
