VHDL-2008: New Features
VHDL 2008 has come as a major modification to IEEE VHDL after its 1076-93 version. Significant changes are made making VHDL more designer friendly.
PSL is integrated into VHDL
PSL is a language tool developed for verification using assertions regarding properties of design under a set of assumptions. VHDL already includes the assert statement, which is used for adding simple check on violations in VHDL models.
VHDL extends this idea by integrating PSL as a part of VHDL, providing a syntax for describing the expected behaviour of a circuit over time and for checking that the VHDL code implements that behaviour.
VHDL 2008 includes the basic subset of PSL as a part of its standard syntax. Therefore, all the keywords ...
