Comparison of VHDL, Verilog and SystemVerilog

Mentor Graphics

"As the number of enhancements to various Hardware Description Languages (HDLs) has increased over the past year, so too has the complexity of determining which language is best for a particular design. Many designers and organizations are contemplating whether they should switch from one HDL to another. This paper compares the technical characteristics of three, general-purpose HDLs: * VHDL (IEEE-Std 1076): A general-purpose digital design language supported by multiple verification and synthesis (implementation) tools. * Verilog (IEEE-Std 1364): A general-purpose digital design language supported by multiple verification and synthesis tools. * SystemVerilog: An enhanced version of Verilog. As SystemVerilog is currently being defined by Accellera, there is not yet an IEEE standard."
