Yes , think of it of a high level and standardised method of describing the configuration of your FPGA hardware rather than a program for it to execute.For example I could define  logic blocks to act as flipflops and attach the input to one pin and the out put to another they don't need to

Thanks John. I get that it's a software description of some hardware. This is the first time I've come across it. I might spend some time looking into it - if/when MrsD allows - just to satisfy my own curiosity. Not that I'll be doing any hardware design though. Cheers, Norm. -- Sent from my

Indeed, one might say it's more of a mark up decription of what you  would like to see the hardware been rather than a S/W program to run on the H/W. Sounds so pedantic doesn't it ;-)JA On Thursday, 9 January 2020, 22:11:31 GMT, Norman Dunbar via Ql-Users wrote: See! I said I knew
