Parallel While

Definition

If you use While outside of a Thread, the VHDL While is used. In that section you can repeat only a finite amount of times. If you want to use this parallel While in a thread, you have to write ParWhile.

Example

Process() {
VARIABLE counter : INTEGER := 0;
While (counter < 8)
{
LED(counter) <= '1';
counter := counter + 1;
}
}

OR

Process() {
Thread {
VARIABLE counter : INTEGER := 0;
ParWhile (counter < 8)
{
LED(counter) <= '1';
counter := counter + 1;
}
}
}
