Accellera Acquires OCP 3.0 Standard
Accellera has acquired assets of the Open Core Protocol International Partnership (OCP-IP) including the current OCP 3.0 standard and supporting infrastructure. OCP 3.0 is a standard for IP core interfaces which facilitates reuse of IP blocks. Accellera and OCP-IP have a rich history of working closely together on standards such as SystemC for transaction-level modeling and IP-XACT. The combination of these standards under one roof will result in efficient ways to address interoperability of IP design and will improve reuse, ultimately increasing designer productivity and reducing development costs. Visit the new Accellera OCP community to find out more. The OCP 3.0 specification and supplemental documents are now available for download here.
New UPF Tutorial Available: Low Power Design, Verification, and Implementation with IEEE 1801™ UPF™
This tutorial covers the basics of Accellera UPF and then focuses on the features of IEEE 1801 that enable the description of more sophisticated power management systems. The tutorial also provides recommendations regarding migration from Accellera UPF to IEEE 1801 and the methodology changes that are required. And, it presents a UPF-based design flow highlighting the practical aspects of using UPF for verification and implementation. This flow is illustrated with practical examples representative of real systems and includes best practices for successful design and verification of low power systems with UPF. Watch now!
