This is the report for my VHDL internship I did in England in 1998. There is now an HTML version available and when I'll find the time I'll work on a french version.

Please note that my english level in 1998 was average and there are numerous grammar and spelling mistakes.

I'm receiving many requests for VHDL documentation and unfortunably I haven't worked with VHDL since this internship in 1998, and so I am unable to provide any help on the subject. However I do consider the langage to be very powerfull and allows access to new projects.

On the Software side Altera provides a free develpment and simulation kit. This software has a few limitations but should be enough for most students. I don't have any link nor know if the software is still available.

If you still want to contact me please go ahead, I usually reply to email within 24h.
