GHDL for VHDL simulation?

Discussion in 'VHDL' started by John Williams, Aug 8, 2003.

  1. Hi folks,

    Does anybody have any experience with GHDL? For those who don't know,
    it's a VHDL compiler based on the gcc (GNU Compiler Collection) framework.

    Basically it translates VHDL to Ada, then compiles it using gcc's Ada
    support. It's free, unlike modelsim et al. It can export the VCD file
    format for viewing in various wave viewers and so on.

    I've downloaded it and compiled trivial examples (adders etc), and it
    seems to work OK. Just wondering if any body has any deeper experience
    or comments on it?
