lecture: SpinalHDL : An alternative hardware description language


Since too long we use VHDL and Verilog to describe hardware. SpinalHDL is an alternative language which does its best to prove that it is time to do a paradigm shift in hardware description.

SpinalHDL is a Scala library which allow to describe RTL by using object oriented programming and functional programming.

This talk will present basics of SpinalHDL and then show by which way this alternative approach offers a huge benefit in code clarity, genericity and reusability.
