VHDL structural subset.

This document describes the ALLIANCE VHDL subset for structural descriptions.

The declaration part of a structural description includes signal decalarations and component declarations.

An internal signal can be declared of any type supported by the present VHDL subset except reg_bit and reg_vector.

A component must be declared with exactly the same port description as in its entity specification. This means that local ports are to be declared with the same name, type and kind and in the same order.

A structural description is a set of component instanciation statements. Instances' ports are connected to each other trough signals in a port map specification. Both explicit and implicit port map specifications are supported by the ALLIANCE VHDL subset.

The present version of the VHDL compiler does not allow unconnected ports (the open mode is not supported).

Only the concatenation operator (&) can be used in the actual part (effective signal conntected to a formal port) of a port map specification.


Here is the description of an adder with an accumulator register.

 entity add_accu is
 port (
   clk      : in  bit;
   command  : in  bit;
   data_in  : in  bit_vector (31 downto 0);
   data_out : out bit_vector (31 downto 0);
   cry_out  : out bit;
   vdd      : in  bit;
   vss      : in  bit
 end add_accu;
 architecture structural of add_accu is
 signal eff_data  : bit_vector (31 downto 0);            -- effective operande
 signal adder_out : bit_vector (31 downto 0);            -- adder's result
 signal accu_out  : bit_vector (31 downto 0);            -- accumulator
 component adder 
 port (a   : in  bit_vector (31 downto 0);
       b   : in  bit_vector (31 downto 0);
       res : out bit_vector (31 downto 0));
 end component;
 component and_32
 port (a   : in  bit_vector (31 downto 0);
       cmd : in  bit;
       res : out bit_vector (31 downto 0));
 end component;
 component falling_edge_reg
 port (din  : in  bit_vector (31 downto 0);
       clk  : in  bit;
       dout : out bit_vector (31 downto 0));
 end component;
   my_adder : adder
   port map (a => eff_data, b => accu_out, res => adder_out);
   my_mux   : and_32
   port map (cmd => command, a => accu_out, res => eff_data);
   my_reg   : falling_edge_reg
   port map (din => adder_out, clk => clk, dout => accu_out);
