The talk will be split into 3 parts:
- A presentation of GHDL, an open-source VHDL simulator. Main features, architecture, short history and purpose
- The future of GHDL. This conference is a good place to discuss about how a project can help another one. In particular which features are expected from other projects.
- My own experience about the economy of EDA FOSS. Why is it difficult to built a FOSS ecosystem? What kind of EDA FOSS do we want ?
