Introduce structural VHDL constructs
- Use of components
- Component binding indications
- Use of configuration declarations
- GENERATE statements
The goals of this module are to introduce the concepts and constructs supporting structural modeling using VHDL. These include the mechanisms for incorporating other VHDL design objects into an architecture description. In addition, some powerful VHDL utilities that facilitate the design of systems with regular structures and constructs to support configuration control will be presented. The goal of this module is to bring the student to the point where she/he will be able to write code using the concepts of structural design in VHDL.
