    The goals of the very high speed integrated circuit (or VHSIC) program are to reduce IC design time and effectively insert VHSIC technology into military systems. These goals, indicating the need for a standard means of communication to stream-line advanced digital design and documentation, motivated the development of a hardware description language. Requirements were analyzed during 1981; progra... View full abstract»

    In the summer of 1981, the Institute for Defense Analysis arranged a workshop to initiate the development of requirements for a modern hardware description language. Much effort has since been expended developing those requirements and implementing a VHSIC hardware description language (or VHDL). VHSIC is a Department of Defense program dealing with very high speed integrated circuits. One part of... View full abstract»

    The VHSIC hardware description language (or VHDL) provides a standard textual means of description for hardware components at abstraction levels ranging from the logic gate level to the digital system level. It provides precise syntax and semantics for these hardware components, enabling design transfer both within and among organizations. The language is designed to be efficiently simulated and n...

    Part of the VHDL program is to define a support environment for the VHSIC hardware description language. This support environment is both an open-ended integration framework for what is expected to be a growing list of tools interfaced to VHDL, and a specific set of software which is being implemented in Phase B of the program. The specific software under development as part of the DoD VHDL progra... View full abstract»

    High-tech microcircuits command a modernized approach to design and test. This approach, born of harsh economic reality, mandates that effective test be inextricably tied to design. The test generation problem is enormous and requires automatic test program generators that in turn require computer-readable descriptions of the unit under test. The government-sponsored VHSIC Hardware Description Lan... View full abstract»

    The hardware and software communities have reviewed VHDL extensively throughout its conception and development. This follows the 1970s example set during development of the Ada programming language. Analysis of language, like one's preference in clothing, is subjective. Nevertheless, an informed consensus acknowledges VHDL as having good aspects, deficient aspects, and controversial aspects. Addit... View full abstract»

    The weighted repair assistance program learning extension, or WRAPLE, is a maintenance aid to help technicians isolate faults¿a necessary step in system repair. We derived the fault isolation strategies used in WRAPLE from a knowledge-based information-theoretic approach that incorporates fixed experience. This approach contrasts with fault isolation strategies, which are developed from estimates... View full abstract»
