  • Onboard AI - Learn any GitHub repo in 59 seconds
  • InfluxDB - Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • For those who would like to see additional features / simplifications in VHDL, the working group accepts issues at: https://gitlab.com/IEEE-P1076/VHDL-Issues/-/issues

  • amaranth

    A modern hardware definition language and toolchain based on Python

    He probably meant Amaranth.

  • Onboard AI

    Learn any GitHub repo in 59 seconds. Onboard AI learns any GitHub repo in minutes and lets you chat with it to locate functionality, understand different parts, and generate new code. Use it for free at www.getonboard.dev.

  • pymtl3

    Pymtl 3 (Mamba), an open-source Python-based hardware generation, simulation, and verification framework

    Also PyMTL, PyRTL, and MyHDL.

  • myhdl

    The MyHDL development repository

    Also PyMTL, PyRTL, and MyHDL.

  • SpinalHDL

    Scala based HDL

    Don’t forget SpinalHDL that was forked off of Chisel 2 I believe. These DSLs really leveraged the software features of Scala to help build generalised/modular systems. And are generally a quality of life improvement in the language features available.

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.
