Question... Where to draw the line with regards to HDL on EE.SE? This is akin to Arduino questions that appear on EE.SE where most are migrated but some aren't.
VHDL & Verilog are used to describe logic that could target hardware (be it ASIC, FPGA etc...) but they are in essence a programming language. Thing is ... writing in VHDL/Verilog has both hardware & software considerations.
- SOFTWARE: how to describe a certain logical sequences
- HARDWARE: synthesis querks (Actel & if/elsif… tree’s), mapping onto an LUT, timing etc..
When you compare StackOverflow (SO.SE) there are 2743 VHDL tags & 2,390 verilog tags. When the same tags are compared on ElectricalEngineering (EE.SE) there are 668 VHDL & 601 verilog thus SO.SE is geared towards accepting VHDL/Verilog coding queries.
Not all of the EE.SO questions that are tagged VHDL or VERILOG are valid EE.SO queries. Take How to convert a floating point number to integer, using VHDL? shouldn’t this have been migrated to SO.SE
