    DSP with FPGA: Verilog or VHDL ?

    I swear off starting another boring Verilog-vs-VHDL thread,
    (besides I don't wanna break the forum rules)
    but which is the most suitable HDL for DSP targetted to FPGA ?

    Thanks

    Re: DSP with FPGA: Verilog or VHDL ?

    Well DSP requires a high level modeling usually done with MATLAB .So an ideal solution is ACCELFPGA wich is basically a MATLAB language compiler .
    Otherwise .there are plenty of libraries of cores they produce VHDL most of the times and VERILOG too .So the HDL code produced by COREGENERATOR,SYSTEM GENERATOR .SYSTEMVIEW and others are well optimized and RTL simulation is not required .But for complicated not standart algorithms is better to use MATLAB and then migrate to something like ACCELFPGA or even CELOXICA

    But high-level language tools often provide unefficient RTL code, please refer to www.fpgajournal.com for the article - "Leading Languages - Is There a Future Beyond RTL"

    I think Verilog is better, because it is like C, very common in engineer usage

    Algorithm can be relatively converted to Verilog

    they are similar tool that descript the arithmetic.
    About the dsp the key is the arithmetic design.

    verilog is better than VHDL since it supports lot of library linking file.MATLAB will also support verilog.use simulink...then if u still want to increase further performance u can go for systemC

    DSP with FPGA: Verilog or VHDL ?

    beginner can easy study and do programming in verilog with basic C knowledge
    verilog is better for doing vlsi DSP project

    Re: DSP with FPGA: Verilog or VHDL ?

    maybe VHDL is better for DSP targetted to FPGA because VHDL has abundant data types to describe the algorithm.
