Clash - A functional hardware description language
Clash is a functional hardware description language that borrows both its syntax and semantics from the functional programming language Haskell. The Clash compiler transforms these high-level descriptions to low-level synthesizable VHDL, Verilog, or SystemVerilog.
Features of Clash:
Strongly typed, but with a very high degree of type inference, enabling both safe and fast prototyping using concise descriptions.
Interactive REPL: load your designs in an interpreter and easily test all your component without needing to setup a test bench.
Higher-order functions, with type inference, result in designs that are fully parametric by default.
Synchronous sequential circuit design based on streams of values, called
Signals, lead to natural descriptions of feedback loops.
Support for multiple clock domains, with type safe clock domain crossing.

Get Clash from source
Get the source code using Git and enter the cloned directory:
git clone [email protected]:clash-lang/clash-compiler.git # Alternatively, if you haven't setup SSH keys with GitHub: # git clone https://github.com/clash-lang/clash-compiler.git cd clash-compiler
To check out a released version, use:
git checkout v1.2.3
To checkout a release branch use:
git checkout 1.2
Note that release branches might contain non-released patches.
† GHC 9.2 contains a regression, rendering Clash error messages indecipherable. This change will be reverted in 9.4.
cabal v2-run --write-ghc-environment-files=always -- clash
