#### Definition:

*Package Std_Logic_1164 is NOT a part of the VHDL Standard Definition. It is defined as IEEE Std 1164.*

#### Description

The Std_Logic_1164 Package contains definitions of types, subtypes, and functions, which extend the VHDL into a multi-value logic. It is not a part of the VHDL Standard, but it is a separate Standard of the same standardization body (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, IEEE).

Main reason for development and standardization of Std_Logic_1164 was the need for more logical values (than the two defined by the type Bit in the Standard package) with resolution function. The types Std_Logic and Std_Logic_Vector (declared in Std_Logic_1164 package) became *de facto* industrial standards.

#### Contents:

The package contains the following declarations:

· type **std_ulogic**: unresolved logic type of 9 values;

· type **std_ulogic_vector**: vector of std_ulogic;

· function **resolved** resolving a std_ulogic_vector into std_ulogic;

· subtype **std_logic** as a resolved version of std_ulogic;

· type **std_logic_vector**: vector of std_logic;

· subtypes **X01**, **X01Z**, **UX01**, **UX01Z**: subtypes of resolved std_ulogic containing the values listed in the names of subtypes (i.e. UX01 contains values 'U', 'X', '0', and '1', etc.);

· logical functions for std_logic, std_ulogic, std_logic_vector and std_ulogic_vector;

· conversion functions between std_ulogic and bit, std_ulogic and bit_vector, std_logic_vector and bit_vector and vice-versa;

· functions **rising_edge** and **falling_edge **for edge detection of signals.

· x-value detection functions, **is_x**, which detect values 'U', 'X', 'Z', 'W', '-' in the actual parameter.

See *std_logic* and *std_logic_vector* for details.

#### Important Notes

· The Std_Logic_1164 Package is copyrighted and may not be altered (either by modifying/removing existing declarations or adding new ones).

· In order to use any of the declarations of the Std_Logic_1164 package, the 'library' and 'use' clauses have to be used:

**library IEEE;**

**use** IEEE.Std_Logic_1164.**all**;
