Verilog is a Hardware Description Language which is used to model complex electronic
components. It is standardized as 1364. It is commonly used for two purposes.
- Verification of digital circuits.
It is basically used for verification of analog circuits and mixed-signal systems.
Verilog as Hardware Description Language includes signal strengths and considers
way of describing the propagation time which differentiates it from the software
programming language. Verilog HDL is easier to learn as compared to VHDL due to
emphasis on C language.
Verilog HDL is also case-sensitive and is not strongly typed. It has very simple
data types but lacks the library management as compared to VHDL. It is a very important
sub domain of VLSI and forms part of front end.
