How to open VHDL files

Did your computer fail to open a VHDL file? We explain what VHDL files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your files.

What is a VHDL file?

VHDL files are VHSIC Hardware Description Language files, which you can read more about below.

The VHDL file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So a VHDL opener may not be able to open all kinds of VHDL files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
