VHDL-AMS is a programming language created in 1993. VHDL-AMS is a derivative of the hardware description language VHDL (IEEE standard 1076-1993). It includes analog and mixed-signal extensions (AMS) in order to define the behavior of analog and mixed-signal systems (IEEE 1076.1-1999). The VHDL-AMS standard was created with the intent of enabling designers of analog and mixed signal systems and integrated circuits to create and use modules that encapsulate high-level behavioral descriptions as well as structural descriptions of systems and components.VHDL-AMS is an industry standard modeling language for mixed signal circuits.

Example code from Wikipedia:
library IEEE; use IEEE.math_real.all; use IEEE.electrical_systems.all; -- this is the entity entity DIODE is generic (iss : current := 1.0e-14; af : real := 1.0; kf : real := 0.0); port (terminal anode, cathode : electrical); end entity DIODE; architecture IDEAL of DIODE is quantity v across i through anode to cathode; constant vt : voltage := 0.0258; begin i == iss * (exp(v/vt) - 1.0); end architecture IDEAL;
