November 2018, HDL Works announces the release and immediate availability of
EASE 9.1, the Graphical HDL Design tool.

About EASE

EASE is the most intuitive Graphical HDL Design Entry tool in the industry. Providing the user with a better means of communication, documentation, design entry and modification for any HDL design targeted for FPGA or ASIC. With its four integrated editors (block diagram, state diagram, truth table and text editors) EASE offers a suitable design entry for every HDL requirement. It includes integration with the industry standard revision control system Subversion for real multi-user support.

What's new in EASE 9.1

VHDL attribute specifications

In Ease 9.1 it is possible to declare attribute values on entities, architectures, instances and nets. The attributes themselves must be declared in packages, for which a use clause must have been added to the entity or architecture. A drop down box will show all visible attributes. For each used attribute a tool tip can show the type and package where the attribute is defined. The attributes are placed in the generated VHDL code just before the start of the architecture, block or generate statement.

Clauses at architecture level

Library clauses, use clauses and context references can now be added to an architecture in the same way as for an entity.

HDL Import improvements

VHDL import now tries to import comment for the following objects:
  • entity generics
  • entity ports
  • signal declarations
  • component instantiation statements
  • generate statements
