1. Numerous IC registers are available and can be classified according to whether their inputs are parallel (all bits entered simultaneously), serial (one bit at a time), or both. Likewise, registers can have outputs that are parallel (all bits available simultaneously) or serial (one bit available at a time).
2. Shift registers can be implemented with HDL by writing custom descriptions of their operation.
3. An understanding of bit arrays/bit vectors and their notation is very important in describing shift register operations.
4. Shift register counters such as Johnson and ring counters can be implemented easily in HDL.
