What does VHSIC mean?

VHSIC
VHSIC was a 1980s U.S. government program to develop very-high-speed integrated circuits. The United States Department of Defense launched the VHSIC project in 1980 as a joint tri-service project. The project led to advances in integrated circuit materials, lithography, packaging, testing, and algorithms, and created numerous computer-aided design tools. A well-known part of the project's contribution is VHDL, a hardware description language. The program also redirected the military's interest in GaAs ICs back toward the commercial mainstream of CMOS circuits.
