The Use of Hardware Description Language for Digital System Synthesis
Design, verification, and synthesis are all processes that electronics engineers go through to manufacture digital systems. Such processes can be achieved via hardware description language (HDL), for which Very High Speed Integrated Circuit HDL and Verilog are two of the chief examples. We discuss HDL and the various processes that electronics engineers use for digital system synthesis.
