"As the number of enhancements to various Hardware Description Languages (HDLs) has increased over the past year, so too has the complexity of determining which language is best for a particular design. Many designers and organizations are contemplating whether they should switch from one HDL to another. This paper compares the technical characteristics of three, general-purpose HDLs: * VHDL (IEEE-Std 1076): A general-purpose digital design language supported by multiple verification and synthesis (implementation) tools. * Verilog (IEEE-Std 1364): A general-purpose digital design language supported by multiple verification and synthesis tools. * SystemVerilog: An enhanced version of Verilog. As SystemVerilog is currently being defined by Accellera, there is not yet an IEEE standard."
