am an embedded developer who is learning how to program programmable
logic devices (CPLD's and FPGA's). I have looked at VHDL and other
Hardware Description Languages, but they seem so obtuse compared to C
or Java. Has anyone tried any of the tools based off of general
purpose programming languages, like JHDL.
Do they work as well as VHDL and other HDL's? These would make things
this type of development acessable to more people if they work well
Are packages similar to JHDL available for other
