Fortunately, because the semantics of both are very similar, making a switch to vhdl from verilog later not a problem. The proposed method is verified by simulation experiment. For example, the design of a d flipflop would require the knowledge of how the transistors need to be arranged to achieve a positiveedge triggered ff and what the rise, fall and clkq times required to latch the value onto a flop among many other technology.

During every cycle, the relative time of the two signals changes a bit, and eventually they switch sufficiently close to each other, leading to metastability. First of all, lets tackle the simplest, and yet a fairly complicated element, the flipflop. Like any hardware description language, it is used for many purposes. The two mode control bits, s1 and s0, provide four modes of operation. In this way, you will see vhdl as a valuable design, simulation and test tool rather than.
