limit to the number of processes?

    Hello All,

    Is there a limit to the number of processes allowed in a behavioural
    description?

    If not, do the instructions inside them get executed at the same time. ie
    two processes A and B contain an IF statement. Each IF statement is
    independent from the other but clocked by the same clock. Would they both
    run at the same time?

    Thanks for any help.

    The oly limit is the lines of code that your brain can handle... :))
    And the physical limit of the hardware, but this is independant from the
    processes.

    Absolutely true... At every rising (or falling) edge the synchronous
    processes are run.
