SystemC Configuration, Control & Inspection (CCI) Working Group
The SystemC Configuration, Control and Inspection WG is responsible for developing standards that allow tools to interact with models in order to perform activities such as setup, debug and analysis.
Chair: Trevor Wieman, Intel Corporation
Vice-Chair: Mr. Bart Vanthournout, Synopsys
This group is defining standards for the exchange of information between SystemC models and tools. The goal of these important standards is to improve efficiency and ROI for both model creators and tool providers. They will allow suppliers to instrument models so that a rich user experience is enabled, and they will allow industry tools to leverage this instrumentation to provide powerful debug and analysis capabilities. The WG is initially focusing on configuration for which the requirements specification has been publicly reviewed; development of a draft standard is underway. Future areas being considered are visibility (internal state, power data, performance stats, etc.) with monitor/trace controls, model-specific command/control messaging, registers, and save/restore functionality.
In December 2009, the CCI Configuration Requirements Specification underwent a public review period that extended through April 2, 2010. Read the press release.
