 +====== Other VHDL resources ======
 +
 +===== VHDL books =====
 +  * [[http://​www.amazon.com/​Rapid-Prototyping-Digital-Systems-Hamblen/​dp/​0792374398|Rapid prototyping of digital systems]] (James O. Hamblen and Michael D. Furman)
 +  * [[http://​www.amazon.com/​Digital-Design-Cpld-Applications-CDROM/​dp/​0766811603|Digital Design with CPLD applications]] (Robert Dueck)
 +  * [[http://​www.amazon.com/​Hdl-Chip-Design-Synthesizing-Simulating/​dp/​0965193438|HDL Chip Design]] (Douglas J. Smith), nicknamed The Blue Book
 +  * [[http://​www.amazon.com/​Digital-Design-RTL-Verilog-VHDL/​dp/​0470531088|Digital Design 2nd edition]] (Frank Vahid)
 +  * [[http://​www.amazon.com/​Designers-Guide-VHDL-Systems-Silicon/​dp/​1558602704|The Designer'​s Guide to VHDL]] (Peter J. Ashenden)

 +
 +===== VHDL Bloggers =====
 +List of personal or corporate blogs that deal with VHDL or hardware design in general:
 +  * The personal view of [[http://​www.sigasi.com/​janhdl|Jan Decaluwe on HDL Design]]. Aware of the past, but relevant for the future.
 +  * [[http://​vhdlguru.blogspot.com/​|VHDL coding tips and tricks]] by Vipin
 +  * [[http://​www.constrainedrandom.com/​|Constrained Random]] Verification,​ EDA and random geekery by Scott Roland
 +  * [[http://​www.parallelpoints.com/​|Parallel Points]] Martin J. Thompson'​s ramblings on a variety of subjects
 +  * [[http://​chip101.com/​|Chip 101]] Designing integrated circuits that (usually) work, by John MacDonald
 +
 +===== VHDL Simulators =====
 +==== Commercial ====
 +All major EDA vendors have their own HDL simulators. They usually support both VHDL and Verilog. Mixed language designs (designs that contain both VHDL and Verilog code) are also supported, but this usually requires a more expensive license.
 +  * ModelSim / QuestaSim / vsim (Mentor Graphics)
 +  * ncsim (Cadence)
 +  * vcs (Synopsys)
 +  * Xilinx ISim
 +  * Aldec RivieraPro
 +  * ActiveHDL (Aldec, also shipped by Altium)
 +  * VHDL Simili ([[http://​www.symphonyeda.com/​|Symphony EDA]])
 +  * [[http://​www.gmvhdl.com/​|Green Mountain]] (not maintained over the last years, supports Mac)
 +
 +==== Free / Open Source Software ====
 +The open source VHDL simulators have a much slower simulation speed than commercial simulators. Today open source simulators support a limited subset of VHDL
 +  * [[http://​ghdl.free.fr/​|GHDL]] (most popular)
 +  * [[http://​freehdl.seul.org/​|FreeHDL]] 
 +
 +===== Other Links =====
