Re: RTL vs Behavorial

rtl=register transfer logic, it describes the hardware

behavioural describes .... the behaviour which can be implemented in different rtl ways

The RTL level is very closed to the hardware target description.
The behavioural is useful for simulation, but sometime Behavioural can not be synthetised for an hardware target.

Behavioral descriptions are not cycle-accurate, i.e. no notation of clocks or cycles. Behavioral descriptions can be translated into an RTL description by using behavioral or high-level synthesis tools, which deal with the problems of scheduling of opreations, allocation of resources and bindings...

Re: RTL vs Behavorial

RTL,behavioral are various abstraction levels in design flow..
abstraction level means the way of hiding details...
RTL is more detailed in nature and also constrained by timing..
