Composite Data Types and Operations

Now that we have seen the basic data types, natures and sequential operations from which the processes of a VHDL-AMS model are formed, it is time to look at composite data types. We first mentioned them in the classification of data types and natures in Chapter 2. Composite data objects consist of related collections of data elements in the form of either an array or a record. We can treat an object of a composite type or nature as a single object or manipulate its constituent elements individually. In this chapter, we see how to define composite types and natures and how to manipulate them using operators and sequential statements.

4.1 Arrays

An array consists of a collection of values, all ...
