Definitions for "HDL"
High density lipoprotein, a lipoprotein that transports cholesterol in the blood; high levels are thought to be associated with decreased risk of coronary heart disease and atherosclerosis; sometimes called good cholesterol. Contrasted with LDL.
Also known as "good" cholesterol, HDL's are large, dense, protein-fat particles that circulate in the blood picking up already used and unused cholesterol and taking them back to the liver as part of a recycling process. Higher levels of HDL's are associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease because the cholesterol is cleared more readily from the blood.
Known as the "good cholesterol" that scavenges excess cholesterol from the blood stream and carries it to the liver for excretion.
Hardware Description Language. A language that describes circuits in textual code. The two most widely accepted HDLs are VHDL and Verilog.
Hardware Description Language. A CAD tool used for description and simulation of system and part microelectronics hardware at three major levels of abstraction: behavioral or algorithmic, register transfer level (RTL), and gate. ASIC HDL models at the RTL level are frequently automatically compiled into ASIC vendor's cell libraries to avoid manual gate-level design time and improve accuracy relative to high-level system modeling.
A programming language used by electronics engineers to design hardware components or devices, such as processors, cell phones or computers.
