We motivate the application of object-oriented modeling as an approach to achieve more reuse and higher abstraction in hardware design. This requires an object-oriented hardware description language, preferably an extension to VHDL. Several variants of such OO-VHDL are being discussed controversially. We present our unified approach, Objective VHDL, adding object-oriented features to VHDL design entity as well as to the type system to provide a maximum of modeling power.}}@COMMENT{Bibtex file generated on }
