VHDL Part 1

From all the books I have read that discusses VHDL, its definition boils down to the following definitions.

VHDL stands for VHSIC Hardware Description Language. VHSIC is an acronym for Very High Speed Integrated Circuits, a pioneer program under the United States Department of Defense in 1980s and led to the development of VHDL. VHDL is a hardware description language that is used to describe an electronic system. Popular programming languages such as C or C++ can be used to develop a software at a high level while VHDL can be used to develop hardware using design techniques at a high level.

There are a lot of books that provide good introduction to VHDL and so I'll not spend whole time taking note of it.
