The VASG is responsible for the 1076 IEEE standard. There are several
VHDL-related standards (1076.1, 1076.2, 1076.3, 1076.4, 1164, etc.). However, all
VHDL-related standards have their own working groups.
As the owner of the foundation standard VHDL for which all the related standards
depend, the VASG gladly accepts all inputs (bugs, enhancement requests, etc.).
However, that input will be vectored to the appropriate standards working group, if
IEEE: Is the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (http://www.ieee.org)
The IEEE is a standards publishing organization (among other things).
DASC: Design Automation Standards Committee (http://www.vhdl.org/dasc)
The DASC is the sponsoring committee within the IEEE responsible for all design automation
VASG: VHDL Analysis and Standardization Group
The VASG is the IEEE working group responsible for IEEE-Std-1076 (the VHDL Language
Reference Manual) standard. The VASG is part of the DASC.
The next version of VHDL is scheduled to be balloted in 1998. The version
after VHDL-98 is currently referred to as VHDL 200X. However, a new LRM could be
balloted as soon as 1999, but no later than 2003, depending upon when new language
capabilities such as a PLI or other enhancements or significant changes are adopted.
