In this chapter, we examine the object types used in VHDL. The types allowed in VHDL consist of everything from scalar numeric types to composite arrays and records to file types.

Then we use examples to show how many types of descriptions can be made easier to read by using the power of enumerated and composite data types.
A VHDL object consists of one of the following:
Signal, which represents ...
