Simulation Guide for VHDL

Simulating the VHDL generated from Arx is straightforward. As opposed to the generated C++, the hierarchy of the Arx source code is preserved in the VHDL. For source code in the file foo.arx, the VHDL file foo.vhd is generated. Top model top in Arx becomes entity foo in VHDL. Around this model a wrapper model is generated with entity name foo_std. This wrapper model converts all inputs and outputs to VHDL data type std_logic or std_logic_vector for easy interfacing with other design tools.
