(Some of) their stuff is 5V-tolerant and a few even fit in a 600-mil 
chip footprint, so I've been looking at their line for some time now. 
Unfortunately, their motley assortment of free synthesis tools disagree 
on what constitutes meaningful VHDL, and none of them provide helpful 
feedback about just what it was they couldn't understand in my code.

I've had to put my MPS-6530-in-VHDL project on hold until I can get a 
better VHDL syntax checker... which is awkward, because I have no idea 
where to look. Has anyone got suggestions? I have access to Windows XP 
on Intel and Mac OS X Tiger on PowerPC.
