  • Rob Gaddi, Patrick Lehmann, Jim Lewis, Lieven Lemiengre, Ernst Christen, Brent Hayhoe


Meeting Discussion

  • What's Next - see PrivateDocuments file: _summary_vhdl_requirements_priority.xlsx
  • March 3: 48: Protected Type: Shared Variables On Entity Interface
    • Allow shared variables.
    • ?Also allow constants? Use model?
  • 51: API for VHDL Assert Statements

    • AssertApi
    • For assert can be as simple as get_assert_count(Level: Severity_Level) returns total count as an integer
    • Call back mechanism would handle this nicely - can impact purity.
    • Proposal also requires handling for textio read errors
  • Arrays/composites of protected types.
    • Need some input from compiler writers as to why we currently disallow this.
    • AI talk to GHDL compiler writers about this.
    • With constraint that the array and/or composite only contains protected types.
    • With the constraint that can only reference an individual element of the array or composite
    • slicing - need for passing the array to subprogram
    • Aggregates?
  • Need to get back to interfaces and integers
  • Attributes for identifying clocks, reset, polarity
  • Restart at line 60
