However, I still have problems. See how to avoid delay in the output of simple process statement in VHDL. Post as a guest Name.

But what exactly are those. The Starting with a design leads you to a download link and directions for a DLX processor simulation.

I usually use Modelsim on windows or fedora FEL. Email Required, but never shown. You should also limit the run time duration with a guard timer should your test bench provide a free running clock.

Can someone tell how exactly I can test a vhdl program on my Mac? In the ghdl manual see 1. The problem is, however, that nothing shows up. And yes getting the source for the two VHDL files from the ‘tutorial’ was painful. The resolution isn’t so good and it’s Linux centric.

The development future for ghdl is bright. What happened is that I now have a work-obj When released version ghdl Then I run ghdl -e myfilewhich does nothing. The OS X gtkwave.


While this can be a disadvantage in large models the ghw format allows any type or subtype ghhdl literal display. A ghw file can be clicked on and gtkwave has a set of rules used to search for nanual applicable gtkw file.

I wouldn’t claim it’s a good tutorial, but you’re getting what you paid for here.

macos – How do I compile and run a VHDL program on Mac with ghdl? – Stack Overflow

It’s possible with binary releases of ghdl and gtkwave to separate user from developer. See the answer at ‘Elaborating the use of ghdl and gtkwave with an example. There are a couple of advantages to using the ghw file format. You can always select more in gtkwave to display more information. I majual do it. Another is that ghdl saves all signal transactions to it’s ghw dump file.

The original poster asked for some real examples with command line values. Then, you have to build an executable file. Ask and you shall receive, although I didn’t type in the code from the example I found and it’s a pain to extract from the PDF. It’ll likely be version 0.

The latest version of the application can be downloaded from this link on Sourceforge – gtkwave. I don’t manuao if this is exactly relevant to this discussion. You might also note the assignment of ‘X’ to Cin at 60 ns in the gtkwave display, I did it to show the last values assigned in the testbench.


Also see the vcd options in that directory should you choose to use VCD instead. In the SST window select U0 and then in the signals window select cin hit the insert button then the same for cout.

ghdl(1) – Linux man page

It’s only known to run on OS X There’s a version of ghdl for OS X running on Intel processors for versions And yes the certificate for gna. Where ever ‘Windows’ appears it should be read as ‘Windows or other mcode version’. I mean like some command line input, that would be great and help me get going! That as they say is a big ask! When I compiled them separately I got error messages.

I did have an issue trying to compile a test bench for said vhdl code. After that I double click on that file and gtkwave opens.

Maybe in in combination with GTKWave. So maybe there was an issue with how the vhdl was compiled. Then I compiled it with ghdl -a test. Part 0 is about installing the two tools.
