This document (either HTML, PDF or EPUB) is autogenerated from the sources at the following GitHub repository: umarcor/ghdl-cosim: vhdl202x-lcd-dpi/vhdl202x-lcs-dpi. Hence, the content is expected to change, as fixes, enhancements or new sections are added. In HTML, at the top of each page, there are references to the history and sources. When discussing the content, please be aware that subtle differences might exist.
The VHDL Analysis and Standardization Group (VASG) is responsible for maintaining and extending the VHDL standard (IEEE 1076). The official website of the group is eda-twiki.org/cgi-bin/view.cgi/P1076. Interested users can subscribe to the reflector (mailing-list) and/or read the archives: grouper.ieee.org/groups/1076/email. Apart from that, in December 2019, VHDL libraries were published at opensource.ieee.org/vasg/Packages.
Although being a member of IEEE is not required, writing to the reflector or accessing ieee.org require users to register. In order to reach a wider audience, the VASG uses an organization in GitLab too: gitlab.com/IEEE-P1076.
The content of this document is being discussed in the following thread of the VASG reflector: grouper.ieee.org/groups/1076/email/msg01286.html. There is also an issue in gitlab.com/IEEE-P1076/VHDL-Issues/-/issues/10. Moreover, there is a proposal in VASG’s TWiki site since 2011 named “Direct Programming Interface” (see eda-twiki.org/cgi-bin/view.cgi/P1076/DpiProposal). Nevertheless, interested users can participate through any of the forums referenced above.
